Comedians aren't known for political correctness, but Geordie comic Gavin Webster's feeling pretty tormented by it.
‘His rants are wonderfully surreal’ The Herald
Following his recent role in Ken Loach's award-winning film, I, Daniel Blake, Gavin's returning to stand-up and ready to unleash his legendary ranting style on the North East and Scotland. This time, however, he's having one big argument with himself.
Right-on politics is the topic du jour and Gavin's still having trouble getting to grips with it. As a 47 year old white male who started his career on a building site in the mid 1980s after attending the comprehensive school with the lowest attainment in the borough of Gateshead, he really doesn't realise how lucky and privileged he is.
Audiences can expect pertinent and vacuous points from both sides of the argument by a man arguing with his inner self.
The tour kicks off at the Alun Armstrong Theatre in Stanley (1st April bookings at www.civichallstanley.co.uk)
, followed by two Stand Comedy Club performances in Edinburgh (27th April) and Newcastle (1st May - a filmed performance for his new YouTube channel, North Sea TV, for both Stand performances visit www.thestand.co.uk) and culminating with a show at Seen in Darlington (17th May -POSTPONED)
