Midweek comedy show aims to raise a few laughs
By Stuart Laundy - Senior Reporter
START the new year with a few laughs.
That's the offer from Teesdale's Funny Way to Be comedy club, which stages the first in a series of midweek shows at The Witham, in Barnhard Castle, on Tuesday, January 8.
Newcastle-based funnyman Cal Halbert will be the headliner.
He made many friends in the town with an excellent short set which closed the Sunday Night at the Witham fundraiser – staged as part of the venue's £30k in 30days public appeal – last September.
This time, he will perform a full show – No Biz Like Showbiz.
Promoter Peter Dixon said: “Cal has performed from local comedy clubs to the London Palladium.
“You may know him as one half of The Mimic Men from Britain's Got Talent a couple of years ago.”
Tickets for the show – which will also feature a support act to be confirmed – are just £5.
They are available online at www.funnywaytobe.com or from The Witham box office on 01833 631107 when it re-opens tomorrow (Friday, January 4).
