Saturday Barrel Of Laughs: Barry Dodds, Dan Nightingale, Bobby Mair
"The Barrel of Laughs show takes place every Friday and Saturday night. Bringing you three top-flight national and international acts plus one of the Frog's fantastic comperes.
The cabaret style club gives you the best possible atmosphere for comedy and is the perfect choice for your night out whether a couple or a party group, with reserved tables and delicious food.
Doors will open at 6:45pm, so you will have plenty of time to have a drink before the show starts at around 8pm. The show will end at approximately 10:30pm."

Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
This charming Geordie motor-mouth has audiences in the palm of his hand, even when discussing the most near the knuckle subjects. With material ranging from the supernatural to euthanasia, everything is delivered with a cheeky smile that wins over even the most stony faced of the audience.
A finalist in various high profile competitions such as Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy Search, his twinkly eyed, playful demeanour disarms judging panels, industry experts and audiences alike, allowing him flirt coquettishly with topics that are traditionally a little more unusual.
