The producer of a popular sketch show is desperately searching for an Orville the Duck puppet.

Gareth Hunter is hoping somebody has a puppet that the Laffalang Gang can borrow for Sunday’s Sketch For Sammy event.

Organised by Sunday for Sammy, the event will see six new sketches being presented at The Stand Comedy Club, in Newcastle.

One of the skits features Orville the Duck, and Gareth would like anyone with an Orville puppet to contact him.

He said: “I don’t care what size he is, but obviously the bigger the better.”

A Sketch For Sammy kicks off at 2pm, with doors opening at 1.15pm.

The show will also feature comedians Steffen Peddie and Josh Daniels.

The winning sketch, to be performed at Sunday For Sammy, will be chosen by judges including Tim Healy.

Gareth can be contacted on 07736 687678.
