"Keep the weekend going with a laughter-packed poke at the goings-on in the Northeast. Host Gavin Webster promises a topical review every week as he targets who's who and what's what in Northumbria. Stand-up guests, games, characters and sketches too. Arrive a bit earlier to try our fab pre-theatre menu in the upstairs bistro."

Despite looking like a slightly dishevelled and demented geography lecturer, he is a brilliant comedian. He crackles with childish energy, getting caught in flights of fancy and going off on strange tangents, but never loses sight of the gag. A performer worth the admission price alone.
He was a regular in BBC2's Johnny Vegas sitcom 'Ideal', a former City Life Comedian of the Year and Breakthrough Act at the North West Comedy Awards. Like a truly bizarre hybrid of Harry Hill, Half Man Half Biscuit and Viz comic, Seymour is a teller of extremely tall tales and High Priest of the terrifically twisted one-liner. He was also victorious in the Cup A Soup Comedy Challenge. You may mock such a curiously named title but the prize money was 10 grand.
'Leaves his crowd uplifted, entertained and laden with charity shop-bought gifts...Warm, original and weird' (Edinburgh Festival Guide)
'Breathtaking... a surreal performance, he had the audience in the palm of his hand from start to finish' (Evening Chronicle).

Ava's always felt out of place: at public school, as a prison officer and a struggling teenage single mum. Luckily, the 'rising star' (Guardian) of C4's Kings Of Comedy and BBC2's The Sack Race can laugh at her misfortunes.
'Funny, witty and engaging, this is a comedian worth watching' (Three Weeks)
'Confident, commanding, yet low-key, she exudes a cool authority' (Chortle)
'Well-structured, well written and skilfully delivered' (The Scotsman)
'Stand-up with a harsh, dark edge, a refreshing change from all the feelgood cr*p' (Melbourne Age).
Ava Vidal tour dates
Newcastle's best export since Brown Ale. Gavin Webster's style of comedy is loud, sharp and controversial - and audiences love him for it. A definite Geordie, Gavin has superb stage presence. His material is bold and provocative yet delivered in a charming manner - which has brought him much praise and attention.
'Funny, clever and as brilliantly observed as you'll find' (The Scotsman)
'Palpably funny' (The Herald)
'His daftness is little short of surreal genius' (The Stage).
