This Wednesday the 15th December, join us at The Bridge Hotel in Newcastle for one of the best up and coming comedy clubs in the North East.  Founded in early 2009, The Laughing Penguin has gained a bit of a reputation in the region, growing ever more popular and successful having showcased some of the finest comedians around.  Recent highlights include Sarah Millican and Gary Delaney, along with many more of the best and upcoming Northern comedians.

This year’s Christmas special is headlined by Stu & Garry, resident improv duo of the legendary The Stand Comedy Club.  With 30 years of performing experience between them you can be sure there won’t be a dry eye in the house.

Support for the night comes in the shape of John Whale, one of the best young acts around; Matthew Winning; So You Think You’re Funny Winner James Kirk; and The Laughing Penguin New Act Of The Year Richard Gadd, recently interviewed by Giggle Beats.

The Laughing Penguin’s resident MC Tony Jameson will once again be taking the reins for the night. With his hyperactive brain and whimsical imagination, he is sure to keep the laughs coming.
