A summer season of fun is promised when the ever-popular Norfolk comedians Olly Day and Nigel ‘Boy’ Syer sail into Hunstanton’s Princess Theatre.

They will be staging If it’s Laughter You’re After on Thursday afternoons throughout July and also one show in September.

With songs and sketches and jokes old and new, great entertainment is guaranteed from Olly Day, the master of magic and mirth, and Nigel ‘Boy’ Syer, Norfolk’s funniest accordionist.

They are making a welcome return following on from the success of last year and this all-new show for 2015 is billed as “The Real Norfolk Show”, filled with music and comedy songs as well as lots of Norfolk ‘squit’, along with some fabulous magic, too!

This year’s finale sees Nigel and Olly as a pair of salty East Coast fishermen, singing a sea shanty specially written for the show as well as some great gags and songs with a seaside flavour! Olly says: “Its going to be nautical but nice!”

Nigel ‘Boy’ Syer has built up a huge following all over East Anglia and he will be performing his own special brand of comedy and country songs.

Olly Day is a comedian and magician; he has a great singing voice and has spent the last six years at the end of the pier in Cromer, starring in their Christmas show.

Their special guest, Maria Willis, is Norfolk’s latest new talent. She is a young singer from Wroxham, who is back by popular demand in Hunstanton after wowing audiences in the show last year.

She recently performed on stage in Norwich in The Phantom of the Opera and will be showcasing some beautiful songs from the world of pop as well as some of her favourite classical arias.

Both Nigel and Olly have been performing to packed houses at Gorleston in their Summer Laughter Show and are now looking forward to their season at Sunny Hunny.

Olly says: “The Princess Theatre is one of the gems of Norfolk. It has such a great atmosphere and the laughs roll towards you like big waves.”

Nigel added: “We’re having such fun with the Laughter show this year. After performing on my own for so long, it’s great to be part of a double act. It gives us the chance to perform so many different sketches and comedy songs. The audiences are loving it, too!”

The Thursday matinees are on July 2, 9, 16 and 23, and the final show is on September 3; all performances start at 2.30pm.

Tickets are £13.50, concessions £12.50 and you can book at the Princess Theatre box office on 01485 532252.
