PUNCH-DRUNK 10: Blyth
Venue: Newsham Side Club, NE24 4NH
Date: 19th October 2015 - 7:00pm
If you’ve never been to a Punch-Drunk Comedy Event before, here’s why it’s time to get on board!
When 350 folk joined Gav and Kai Humphries for the first Punch-Drunk comedy event in Blyth on the evening of 19th January 2015, the brothers told them they planned to reconnect their community through the forces of Love and Laughter. 9 months worth of sold-out Blyth events and 2 new all-but-filled venues later the boys have made good on their promise.
The events have been sensational so far, Punch-Drunk Comedy has won national acclaim as the BEST LARGE COMEDY-VENUE IN THE NORTH and the Love and Laughter Movement has gained the attention of regional newspapers, TV and Radio. Why? Because the ever-growing Punch-Drunk Army have taken the Movement to their hearts as the hub of a new, collaborative pro-action to restore the energy and people power that lies within their communities.
The Punch-Drunk Army now support 4 crucial charitable Trusts and have donated to numerous other causes, with the fundraising total so far this year sitting over £10,000. Together they stock 3 local food banks from month to month by raiding their cupboards to bring donations along with them to each gig, all whilst reconnecting on a monthly basis to laugh until they cry.
If you live in Blyth, Bedlington or Ashington and haven’t been to a Punch-Drunk event yet, you can guarantee that one day, someone will ask you why you weren’t in on the National Social Rediscovery Movement that started in your hometown.
