The Coo’s Lick

The Coo’s Lick 

The Tanners Arms – 17th August 2017

~a guest blog by Pete Shilton from Splitting Sides Comedy
We’ve an absolutely cracking lineup for ‘The Coo’s Lick‘. 

We’ve MC Julian Lee runner-up in the 2017 UK Pun Championship and one Quarter of Newcastle’s Famous Four Men in a Tent.  Also (uncredited) writer of the Scandinavian bar codes gag which went viral (scandalous)!  He’s a firm favourite and making his third appearance at our fine event. 

Headlining is  the brilliant Fran Garrity. Winner of All Jokes Aside Comedian of the Year, Beat the Frog gong shows in Preston & Manchester & gong show winner in Stockton for Ten Feet Tall.  He’s absolutely brilliant and opened our very first Splitting Sides and is back for his second appearance at long last.

Our opener is Si Buglass, famously kicked out of Byker Grove, tattooist of Gazza and an extremely talented and funny story teller, who will have you thoroughly engrossed.

We also have the delightful Rivka Ottley coming up from Yorkshire, Rivka was the winner of The Stockton Gong (beating a certain Julian Lee, although he never mentions it!)  She’s one of the finest young comics on the circuit at the minute and destined for great things.

This will be the tenth Splitting Sides and the third in our superb new venue The Tanners, just off Byker Bridge thanks to them entry is free and they’re also offering a promotion on their Legendary Burgers in celebration of ‘The Coo’s Lick‘.  It’s an absolutely cracking setting, with a great buzz.  An opportunity to see some of the North’s top comics up close and a two minute walk from Manners Metro or ten minutes from the city centre, right on the cusp of the beautiful Ouseburn.
