VGC Northern Poker Championships dates to be announced soon!

Thursday’s just got funnier!

From Thursday June the 13th Victoria Gate Casino will host monthly Live Laugh’s! Where the best comedic talent on the circuits will perform on our Lower Live Stage. For just £10 per person you will enjoy a hour and a half of laughs along with a buffet before the show starts. In June we will see four great comedians perform on our stage.

Our fantastic MC Chris Lumb will head up the night with more strings to his comedy bow than a funny Robin hood, he’s a comedy director having award winning films played at festivals such as Raindance. As a keen impressionist Chris also appeared on ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’.

Followed by our hilarious support acts Jack Gleadow and Danny Posthill. Danny has performed all over the world, giving his view on the world as he impersonates it. Jack is an award-winning, one man-variety show and of the most unique performers on the UK comedy circuit today – a Jack of all trades, a master of fun!

The headliner is a television guest act who made it to the finals on Britain’s Got Talent and has been pegged to be the next big thing! As a Leeds local, Micky P Kerr offers a different style of comedy as a comedic musician. Commencing his tour this year, Victoria Gate Casino are excited to have him as the headline act – prepare for big belly laughs from this comedian!
