They continued: “It’s a documentary that’s all about the highs, the lows and the terrifyingly weird world of our long time friend, stand-up comedian, Carl Hutchinson.

“We followed Carl as he toured Britain with his support act Anth Young to see what it’s really like to be a comic, explore what it takes to get up on those stages night after night and how many bodily functions Carl can emit at any given time.

“The film will be coming to select cinemas soon but for now please enjoy this look at what’s to come.”

Carl thanked South Shields’ top theatre venue The Customs House as well as Newcastle’s Tyne Theatre and Opera House for their permission to film interviews in their theatres.
