Stand-ups both have lots to laugh about

Stand-ups both have lots to laugh about

A FORMER policeman and an eternally adolescent Geordie are among the comedy delights in store at the Kenton Theatre this autumn.

On Friday, October 4, the New Street venue welcomes Radio 4 star Alfie Moore with his new stand-up show Fair Cop Unleashed.

A Kenton spokesman said: “The show is based on a dramatic real-life incident from Alfie’s police casebook.

“Relive with him the thrilling ups and downs of the night a mysterious clown came to town and more than one life ended up in the balance.

“It was no laughing matter — but this show certainly is!

Enjoy Alfie’s unique brand of humour hilariously woven together with his personal insights into his life on the front-line of the police force. It’d be a crime to miss it!”

Tickets are £19 with concessions £16.

Then on Saturday, November 2, Carl Hutchinson brings his new confessionally-titled touring show I Know I Shouldn’t Behave Like This...

The Kenton spokesman said: “From buying a house to having kids, Carl takes a uniquely adolescent approach to grown-up issues. Join him with his stories and observations that have had crowds laugh their heads off year after year.”

Tickets are £16. Both shows start at 7.30pm. For more information and to book, call the box office on (01491) 575698 or visit
