THE hugely popular Big Mouth Comedy Club is heading to Saltburn Community Theatre for a Seaside Special this month.

A barnstorming line-up stars Justin Moorhouse (pictured right), from Phoenix Nights and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and larger-than-life Irishman Martin Bigpig (pictured left), as seen on tour with Frankie Boyle, with hotly-tipped Geordie charmer Andy Fury as MC for the night.

Big Mouth has brought some of the best comics on the UK comedy scene to packed crowds at Middlesbrough Town Hall Crypt every month for the past three years – and this special Saltburn show marks a welcome return for a top comedy night in the elegant seaside town.

Promoters Ten Feet Tall have been responsible for bringing bags of top names including Sarah Millican, Jimmy Carr, Lee Evans, Michael McIntyre, Alan Carr, Frankie Boyle, Dara O Briain, Sean Lock, Micky Flanagan, John Bishop, Rhod Gilbert and loads more to Teesside over the last couple of years alone.

Wilma Gardiner-Gill from Saltburn Community Theatre said: “I think we’ve missed having some great comedy at the theatre, so we’re really looking forward to this.”

The Seaside Special is an 18+ event, and takes place at Saltburn Community Theatre on Saturday 10 December.

l Tickets are £10, available from Saltburn Theatre (01287) 624997, Saltburn Health Foods, or online at
