Whitley Bay Playhouse Presents 'An Evening with Gervase Phinn'

By Published August 17, 2017

Gervase Phinn has been touring theatres across the country for over 10 years now.

With his keen ear for the absurd and sharp eye for the ludicrous 'An Evening with Gervase Phinn' will have you on the edges of your seats, as Gervase shares his hilarious and sometimes poignant tales of life as a schools inspector in the Yorkshire Dales, with his shows receiving rave reviews.

Comedian, author, poet, broadcaster, lecturer, educational guru, after-dinner speaker and 'born raconteur' (The Guardian) – Gervase is perhaps best known for his best-selling series of five Dales books for Penguin.

Affectionately dubbed 'the James Herriot of Schools', Gervase has also written a wide range of academic books, children's poetry and fiction and is a columnist on The Countryman.

He really is at his best and most exciting in front of a live audience.

'Gervase Phinn is one of the most accomplished public speakers of any kind. A natural storyteller, he combines the timing of the professional comedian with palpable warmth and the ability to deliver a message that is more than just a series of jokes.” (The Times).

Gervase Phinn will be reciting his tales at Whitley Bay, Playhouse on Monday 25 September.
