Gavin Webster is back! The Geordie alternative comedy legend returns to the Tyne Theatre for a brand new show ‘Pontification On Tyne’. Every aspect of life unique to the North East is covered in a crash bang wallop humorous way, with his trademark sardonic songs, classic rants and flights of philosophy with a surreal twist coupled with his plentiful supply or PROPER JOKES, Webster always delivers a new show every year with a support to make for a must see show every November to kick off the Christmas season. You simply can’t miss this local yearly convention.

‘The capacity audience treated to astute, sometimes surreal, observations that were always funny and hugely interesting at the same time…..he’s definitely a man of the people is wor Gav…..arguably the best stand up funnyman on the Tyne’ – The Chronicle
