A TRANSVESTITE funnyman headlined the first show of a North-East comedy club's 2014 season.

Andrew O'Neill stepped onto the stage at The Witham, Barnard Castle, wearing a dress and full make-up to top the bill at the Funny Way To Be Comedy Club.

The evening was hosted by BBC Newcastle's Alfie Joey and completing the line-up were stand-ups Tommy Rowson and Paul F Taylor.

Funny Way To Be's Peter Dixon said: “We spent a lot of time putting this show together.

“On a mixed bill like this, we tried to secure a range of comics to ensure there was a variety of styles and something for all tastes.

“Andrew O'Neill is someone we've always wanted to play at our comedy club and when I saw Paul F Taylor's show at last year's Leicester Comedy Festival I was also determined to bring him to Barnard Castle.”

The Funny Way To Be's next comedy night is on Saturday, March 1, when the headliner will be Jenny Eclair.
