Review: Barry Dodds, Gordon Smith, Liam Frost, Ben Lawes and Danny Deegan – The Bridge Hotel, Newcastle
The Bridge Hotel in Newcastle is a brilliant venue for live comedy. Like all Laughing Penguin nights, tonight’s show took place in the upstairs of the pub and acted as a very intimate setting for an evening of comedy. Tonight’s line-up consisted of headliner Barry Dodds, Ben Lawes, Gordon Smith, Liam Frost and MC Danny Deegan.
I was first introduced to Carl Donnelly whilst watching Russell Howard’s Good News and knew straight away that this a comic for the future. Now after a stint on ‘Mock the Week’ and a successful Fringe run Donnelly looks closer than ever to reaching the top spot. I recently had the opportunity to exchange e-mails with Carl Donnelly, and found out he has quite an eye for great comedy.
What do you get when you cross a massive room that hasn’t been filled properly and an over-exuberant central heating system? The answer comes later.
Having never previously been to a Grinning Idiot comedy night I didn’t really know what to expect, but I not disappointed. The event was held upstairs in The Barnes in Sunderland, and proved to be a nice little venue that really added to the feel of the evening.
