If you’re after a cure for Blue Monday and fancy helping local disability charities at the same time then look no further than a side-splitting night of comedy in Newry on Friday 8th February.
‘Laughter is the best medicine’ will showcase the talents of some of comedy’s rising stars, including MC for the night Ryan Hand who will be flying in from London for this special charity event in his native Co Down. Ryan recently made a big splash onto Saturday night TV as presenter of ITV's Cannonball, he also presents Celebrity Ninja Warrior, Channel 5’s When Eurovision Goes Horribly Wrong and was named Media Eye’s Rising Star of 2018.
Joining Ryan will be award winning comic Mickey Bartlett, a familiar face on Irish television and a firm favourite at comedy clubs across the UK and Ireland, as well as the “West Belfast Taxi Driver” Paddy McDonnell - described by Jason Manford as Belfast’s answer to Kevin Bridges.
Adding some mystery to the night will be Rodd Hogg, fresh from his hit Sky TV show ‘The Irish Magician’. Specialising in close-up magic, Rodd is one of the most sought-after performers in the country.
Proceeds from the event will go to help local people with disabilities who are supported by Head Injury Support Newry and Employers for Disability NI.
The event will take place in the Canal Court Hotel at 7.30pm on Friday 8th February. Tickets are £17.50 and are available from www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/laughter-is-the-best-medicine-tickets-55211062775 from Head Injury Support, 4 Kildare Street, Newry BT34 1DQ, the Canal Court Hotel or pay at the door if any tickets are still available.
