A Blyth resident is hoping the sound of laughter will help breathe new life into his local community.
Gavin Humphries and his brother, stand-up comic Kai, have launched a new comedy night at Newsham Side Club in Winship Street.
Punch-Drunk Comedy aims to bring the world’s best stand-up talent to Northumberland, as well as bringing the community back together.
“In an age when we spend more time than ever before behind a keyboard, we want to bring the community spirit back to Blyth,” said Gavin.
The comedy club has teamed up with Princess Ellie Trust, and it raised more than £480 on opening night.
Tickets for the next show, on Tuesday, February 17, priced £7, are on sale now.
The box office number for tickets is 07738 663379 or they can be purchased online at Ticket Source
