Laughter by the shovel load, delivering the sights and sounds of the Norfolk countryside…..with none of the smell!

That’s the promise from Olly Day, master of magic and mirth, and Nigel ‘boy’ Syer, Norfolk’s funniest accordionist, for a great afternoon’s entertainment at the Princess Theatre in Hunstanton.

Their show ‘If It’s Laughter You’re After’ is being staged on Thursday afternoons starting next week, July 14, and continuing on July 21, September 8 and 15, all at 2.30pm.

Making a welcome return, these two funny men come together again in this all-new show for 2016 for a fun-filled afternoon of music, some fabulous magic and great comedy songs, as well as a big dollop of Norfolk ‘squit’!

The finale of this year’s variety show sees Nigel and Olly as a pair of Norfolk farmers looking at the funny side of farming, telling tales of the soil as well as singing some great songs with a countryside flavour

Nigel ‘boy’ Syer, with a huge following all over East Anglia, is known as Norfolk’s funniest accordionist and he will be performing his own special brand of comedy and country songs.

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

Their special guest is Lisa Marie, Norfolk’s most popular singer, who can switch between singing the beautiful ballads of Karen Carpenter as well as giving her full range to the show-stopping songs of Cilla Black.

Olly said: “The Princess Theatre is such a fabulous venue with a great atmosphere and we all love working there.”

Nigel added: “We’re having such fun with the Laughter show this year and 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 during the performances.”

Both Nigel and Olly have been performing to packed houses at Gorleston in their Summer Laughter Show.

Tickets are £13.50, concessions £12.50; call the box office on 01485 532252.
