MC for the evening is Barry Dodds
This charming Geordie motor-mouth has audiences in the palm of his hand, even when discussing the most near the knuckle subjects. With material ranging from the supernatural to euthanasia, everything is delivered with a cheeky smile that wins over even the most stony faced of the audience. Barry has been on the circuit for five years and has played all across the country, from London to Orkney. This young star is hotly tipped for big things.
