“Reason alone to attend the Laughing Gas nights in Sunderland is resident compere Matt Reed, who consistantly has the crowd in stitches.” – The Sunderland Echo

Gavin Webster – 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.

Gavin Webster has now established himself as one of the most exciting talents to emerge on the national comedy circuit in recent years. After turning his back on the comedy double-act, he went solo in 1995 and hasn’t looked back.

Gavin performed in Does Doug Know with Daisy Donavon for Channel 4 as a regular team captain and currently performs at every major comedy venue throughout the UK including the prestigious Comedy Store’s ‘Men At Work’ topical comedy night. He has also supported + LEE EVANS, + JACK DEE and + PHILL JUPITUS on tour.

We also have another 5 of the area’s most exciting and anticipated stand ups gracing the stage on what is bound to be an astonishing night of personality, laughter and all round jovial madness! And it’s all for charity! Advance tickets on sale now! Very Limited availability!
