Following on from the successful launch night of his comedy showcase, Lost Voice Guy is back again to bring more of his favourite comedians to a stage near you!


Joining us on Lost Voice Guy’s Comedy Showcase this time around will be fellow Britain’s Got Talent winner, Jon Courtenay. Comedian and musician, Jon, is the first-ever Golden Buzzer Act to win the ITV show.


Jon has become well known for writing and performing bespoke songs. He has performed on The Royal Variety Performance, the Britain’s Got Talent Christmas special, Good Morning Britain, This Morning, Lorraine and on BBC Breakfast. He wrote and performed the opening song for This Morning’s Pantomime and has appeared on radio stations including Heart FM, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio Manchester.


Also on the bill is a legend of the comedy circuit, Freddy Quinne.  Freddy is a comedic powerhouse - regularly performing his shamelessly opinionated, no-holds-barred stand-up at the biggest comedy clubs in the country.  He is known for his frank approach and often brutal punchlines, covering everything from topical news to universal truths. His Amazon Prime comedy special, "Quite The Catch", has amassed over half a million views. He also has hours of online footage from shows across the world, with clips racking up millions of streams on Facebook and YouTube.


Completing the lineup will be one of the North East’s funniest people, Sammy Dobson. Sammy decided to try stand-up comedy for a charity event a few years ago and hasn’t stopped since! Sammy now appears at a number of the country’s top venues, and has performed solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe whilst also appearing in alternative pantomimes and sketch shows in her native Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. She recently appeared on BBC Radio 4 on Fred MacAulay’s ‘Fred at The Stand’.


And with Lost Voice Guy on hosting duties once again, the banter with the audience could get very interesting indeed!

This will be a BSL interpreted performance.
