22nd September – Junior Simpson, TBC & Barry Dodds

With his infectious energy and huge stage presence it is easy to see why Junior Simpson is a circuit favourite. Simpson has a boundless joy and exuberance that has audiences hooked with hilarity.

Lapsed choirboy Junior Simpson is a true star of both the black comic firmament and far beyond. He will be a familiar face from the big, bad world of TV, as one of the team captains alongside Suggs on ‘Night Fever’ and as host and star of two of his own series, ‘In the Dark with Junior Simpson’ and ‘The Hit Man’, both for Channel 5. He has also worked with the likes of Jo Brand, Rolf Harris, Frank Skinner and Jonathan Ross.

A true observational comic Simpson finds his humour in the everyday and humdrum with anecdotes of his world travels as a comedian adding his mischievous and daring personality to his set.

Barry has forged an enviable reputation for himself over the past few years, charming audiences nationwide, with his uniquely tailored combination of disarming Geordie wit and wry, down-to-earth observational humour.

Barry has taken the national circuit by storm, with his mix of surprisingly dark and irrepressibly cheeky material. He recently returned form Luxembourg, where he performed a solo show and became the first comedian ever to perform on Luxembourg TV.
