First things first, may I say a huge thank you to all those who wished us well on our 23rd wedding anniversary, you made an already special day even more so.
As a celebration we went to Newcastle City Hall to see Heroes Of Geordie Comedy which, though not advertised as such, turned out to be a fund-raising event for the school our nephew left this July.
To be honest out of the four comics on, I had only actually heard of one - Brendan Healy - but that was okay because it was him I really wanted to see. And was he funny? Was he ever. Despite the fact that he told some really old jokes, it was the way that he told them that had the whole audience doubled up with laughter.
Yes, a really good night was had, real good (some might say old fashioned) comedy with no swearing involved though an interpreter may have been needed by those members in the audience not from the North East.
