2014 Comedian’s Comedian Gavin Webster is to host a new stand-up night in Newcastle.  

The Geordie comedian, who announced an autumn tour earlier this week, will perform at the first Chilli Con Comedy at The Chillingham pub in Heaton on Thursday 1 October.

The show also features Giggle Beats New Act of the Month Sammy Dobson and Lee Kyle.

Chilli Con Comedy is a joint venture between The Grinning Idiot and The Chuckling Monk comedy promoters, who’ve previously hosted the likes of Sarah Millican, Michael McIntyre, Angelos Epithemiou and Reginald D Hunter.

Organisers promise the shows will showcase “the best up and coming acts along with experienced professionals.”

And the pub’s manager, Micky Conroy, is backing the shows to be a big hit.

He said: “They used to be very popular nights and have been a big miss since they disappeared just over a year ago. I’m very excited to see them back!”

Chilli Con Comedy, Thursday 1 October, 8.30pm, £5 or 2-4-1 with a valid NUS card. Tickets are available behind the bar or by calling 0191 265 3992.
