Comedy and Music Legends at the Dormans Club-Goffy Media


Such a popular gig last time around and Goffy again has managed to pull it out the bag again! A comedy legend and TV star is returning to the fantastic Dormans!

A Film, TV and comedy legend is on his way back to Middlesbrough next month. Ricky Tomlinson, star of The Royal Family, Brook side and the hit movie ‘Mike Bassett’ received a huge welcome a few weeks ago when he appeared at a ‘sell – out’ question and answer event at the Dormans Club in Linthorpe.

Now Ricky is on his way back to the Dormans Club with his full theatre comedy and variety show on November 25th, as part of the big name Christmas season, which will also see Chrissy Rock! Recently TV comic Stan Boardman appeared at the Dormans ,as part of a series of high profile events staged by BBC Tees presenter Paul ‘Goffy’ Gough and funded by his Hartlepool based company Goffy Media.

Ricky said, “I had an absolute ball during the Question and Answer event recently in Middlesbrough, the club was bouncing with a full house. Goffy asked me the following morning if I would return for part of the Christmas season he has put together and I had absolutely no hesitation. The show will be very different this time round, as I will be personally selecting a full supporting cast to join me for my full ‘Laughter Show’ for the festive season.”

“The show I am bringing is normally for the bigger theatres, and will feature a full variety cast, so it really will be a first for clubland in the country for me,” said Ricky.

“They were a cracking crowd in Middlesbrough, and it was a real thrill that so many identified with the parts I have played in the many TV shows across the decades. Jim Royle always hits home, as people have experienced sharing time with someone like Jim. The people of Teesside love him, as I found out first hand the other week.”

“I’m just really chuffed that the Dormans is doing something to buck the trend and giving people what they want. And in return, as we proved recently, the people will pack the club. I was also delighted to see my old Middlesbrough pal Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown in the audience when I was in the Dormans. I’m inviting him back on the 25th of November too,” said Ricky.
