A CONTROVERSIAL comedian is heading to Gateshead next month to help fans shake off their festive blues.

East Yorkshire comedian Roy Chubby Brown is bringing his stand up show to The Lancastrian Suite, Gateshead for one night only on Friday 18 January.

The comic is known for his racy content and disregard for political correctness, which has built him a loyal following among his fans.

And because of his no holds barred approach to comedy, his television appearances are rare – so those who enjoy his stand-up often have to wait for his live performances.

His shows sell out quickly as a result and demand for his performance at The Lancastrian Suite is expected to be high.

The strictly over 18 gig will open with an as yet unnamed support act and tickets are £20.
