success story in Low Fell
The Cutting Hedge Comedy Club has been packing the audiences
in since its launch. Taking place at the Gateshead Rugby Club in Low Fell, the
venue has had a lot of work done recently making it ideal for such comedy
events. They are now getting request from touring comics to use our venue. They
are hoping the success of the previous shows is a springboard to hosting more
touring shows and bringing the best comedians to Low Fell.
Cutting Hedge comedy was formed in October 2017 and
its first event sold out within a matter of a week. Our first line up was Lee Kyle, Carl Hutchinson, Will Duggan & Anthony

He’ll also be recording a documentary as he goes,
while hoping not to regret it. The
North East Theatre Guide reviewed the first show of the tour and said the
show was “an entertaining show that is well
worth catching on its trip around the country and it’ll cost you less than the
booking fee that you’ll pay for certain comics that appear on the TV but are,

Lee is bringing this show to Low Fell on Wednesday
28th March and he’s supported by Sammy Dobson who starred in Byker Grove, Boy
meets Girl, I, Daniel Blake etc.
If that’s not enough then Cutting Hedge Comedy
returns for a third instalment on Friday 6th April with a stellar
line up of comedy store regulars including Phil Walker – Son of catch phrase
legend Roy, Roger Monkhouse (No relation), Micky Hutton of Spender, Crocodile Shoes
and Hangar 17 fame. There will also be a very special guest in the line up but
due to contractual agreements we can’t name them as yet.
