Event description
Bags of Fun is a comedy night with a difference!

About this Event

Stand-up comedians Si Beckwith, Ken McGuinness and Jack Johnson are bringing a brand new live comedy show to The Bridge Hotel in Newcastle in February and every month after. ‘Bag Of Fun’ is a comedy night with a difference, as the three comedians seek to champion the weird and interesting comedy on offer in the North East scene. With the three comedians performing themselves every month, there’s a focus on bespoke sets, and daftness and silliness as the week winds down with an intimate Sunday night gig in one of Newcastle’s most underrated venues.

The night will welcome some big comedy names from the North East scene trying new stuff, or just seeking to muck about to a welcoming crowd. While also giving a stage to brand new acts. Every month, acts looking for five minutes of stage time can put their name in the ‘mixed bag’ and one name will be drawn out to do five minutes of whatever they please. Sometimes this will be excellent, sometimes this will be weird, but it will always be memorable.

Rooted in a DIY ethos, Si Beckwith and Ken McGuinness are forging some exciting projects, of which ‘Bag Of Fun’ is a key part, and they’ve brought in an extra funny gent in Jack Johnson to make the night something very special.

They’ve found a true home for this event in The Bridge Hotel, with the pub steeped in history and home to a range of interesting other events. It’s where they held their very first meeting in Summer 2019, and it’s now their home for a new live comedy night.

As heard on BBC Newcastle. Sketch writers and performers for BBC Newcastle’s Grin Up North.
