Where: Stand in the Square (Venue 372)

When: August 16th

Time: 20:20

Cost:Full Price – £10.00, Concession £9.00

About: If you are a local to Newcastle then this name will be one that you will know this name very well as he is one of the household names in the comedy circuit. Making up one part of the improv group, The Suggestibles, Ian McLaughlin is going to Fringe on his own to bring you a different type of show – all about the Science of Laughter and why do we laugh.

I had the pleasure of seeing this show when it was on at The Stand Newcastle and really enjoyed it. it takes both a scientific look and also a light humored glance at why we laugh and where does it all come from. The show is only on for one night and i really recommend that you give it a viewing as it will be a show you will not forget and will walk away with a huge smile on your face.
