Brendan Healy’s My Little Theatre Tour

North East favourite, Brendan Healy, is taking his distinctive brand of Geordie humour on tour this autumn to theatre venues across the region in his “My Little Theatre Tour”.An established and award-winning stand-up comedian and after-dinner speaker, Brendan will be joined on his tour by several special guests, including local rising musician, Shamelay, also known as Sam Healy.Those who have seen Brendan perform can look forward to his signature blend of comedy, story-telling and music in this show, with plenty of new material to delight fans and new audiences alike.

Brendan started his professional career as a musician, and has enjoyed prolonged musical success which include a period in legendary band, Lindisfarne, as well as many years fronting his own band at venues throughout the North East. He has worked with Mark Knopfler, John Miles and AC/DC’s Brian Johnson amongst others, and has written over 40 signature tunes for TV.

Equally, he is no stranger to the world of acting, both on stage and screen. On television, he presented ITV’s Razzmatazz in the seventies before going on to appear in the likes of Auf Weidersehen Pet, Crocodile Shoes, Badger and Coronation Street, whilst his theatre appearances include a season in London’s West End.

More recently, Brendan has become an integral part of North East Christmas tradition with his production company’s annual pantomimes, performed at The Mill Volvo Tyne Theatre on Westgate Road, Newcastle now in their 18th year.

As a comedian and after-dinner speaker, Brendan has performed not just all over the country, but all over the world, but his first love is always to play to home audiences.

His theatre tour kicks off in Alnwick at the Playhouse this Saturday, 8th September and will be followed by four further dates at Consett, Hexham, Blyth and Billingham.

Tickets are available in person from Alnwick Playhouse box office, by telephoning 01665 510 785, or by booking online and are priced at £16.50 £16.50 for concessions.

  1. We were in Consett Empire theatre last night , what a fantastic show.
    I thought the entire show was so funny and the band absolutely great, well done Brendan Healy. Although I have the DVD with most of the material on, I will always come and watch your live show again.The modern day comedian does’nt seem to have your quality of humour which never fails to make me laugh. You truly are a great artist – well done.
    Sincerely, Jackie Collins, Consett.
