A top North-east comedian will be supplying the laughs at an Amble venue next week, in what is his first appearance in the town.

Renowned funnyman Brendan Healy is set to perform at The Old Storehouse on Thursday, March 26.

Scott Hughes, who is general manager at the venue, is delighted that the famous entertainer will be making his long-awaited debut in the Friendliest Port.

He said: “I have seen Brendan Healy live on stage on many occasions and was delighted to hear that he was interested in performing at The Old Storehouse.

“He is such a great story-teller, who adds a lot of Geordie humour and cleverly-tailored comic material to his work, which I am sure the people of Amble will love.

“I’m also particularly excited about this event as it will be Healy’s first performance in Amble.

“Our aim is to create a regular programme of high-calibre events in The Old Storehouse function room and we hope to continue to bring quality acts to Amble.”

Healy began his career as a musician, playing keyboards in groups around the North East, most famously with the legendary rock band Lindisfarne. He then moved into theatre and was immediately snapped up by Andrea Wonfor at Tyne Tees Television to present children’s television programme, Razzmatazz, in the 1970s.

Over the last 15 years, Healy has built up his reputation as a comedian and has appeared on numerous television shows and is in huge demand on the after-dinner circuit.

Tickets for the show are £10 and can be booked by calling 01665 710500, by sending an email to tosh.restaurant@parkleisure.co.uk or purchasing them in person at The Old Storehouse.
