FANCY A GREAT LAUGH THIS SUMMER?
If so, the Summer Laffalang is pure comedy sunshine!
Following the huge success of the Xmas Laffalang at The Stand in Newcastle, last December, which raised £1400 for St Oswald’s Hospice, the Laffalang returns in July, this time with all profits going to South Tyneside-based Cancer Connections.
Written by top North East playwright Ed Waugh (writer of Dracula: Die Laughing, the Xmas Laffalang and co-writer Dirty Dusting, Waiting For Gateaux, Amazing Grace and lots of other rib-tickling stage hits), the Laffalang comprises hilarious summer sketches and comedy from some of the regions’s much-loved and top performers and actors.
Micky Cochrane, the rising star of North East stand-up comedy, will host the shows.
Panto legend Bob Stott recreates Widow Twanky getting a job for Club 18 to 30 (and did she have the time of her life!); hear Bobby Elliot performed live on stage. The sketch was written by Ed Waugh and Trevor Wood and performed at the 2014 Sunday for Sammy
Other rib-tickling summer subjects include the Great North Run, No Holidays this Year, The Aliens Visit To Shields, The Blaydon Races and other off-beat sketches and monologues specially written for this funny extravaganza directed by Gareth Hunter
Tickets cost £10 with all profits going to Cancer Connections.
