It was a dark and stormy night - but inside the Cromer Pier Pavilion Theatre last night the only gales were of laughter.
A near-full house enjoyed an evening of Norfolk nonsense in aid of the EDP's We Care appeal.
A Should The Team Think? panel show was preceded by wit and rib-ticklers from Norfolk personality and squit meister supreme Keith Skipper, and Cromer Pier's Christmas Show favourite Olly Day.
'I gather yesterday's storms did £430,000 worth of improvements to Sheringham,' announced Mr Skipper, setting the tone for an evening of gentle fun poking.
And the theme was picked up by Mr Day who peered into the audience and exclaimed: 'Looking round the room reminds me of that best-selling book - Fifty Shades of Grey,' before embarking on a fast-paced mix of jokes, ventriloquism and song.

The following panel show saw Mr Skipper and Mr Day, EDP editor Nigel Pickover, and BBC Look East's Carol Bundock given a host of silly things to do by chairman David Clayton, editor of BBC Radio Norfolk.
They ranged from 'What's the first thing you look for in the EDP?' - 'to find out whether my fish and chips are still warm', said Mr Skipper - to composing limericks based on Norfolk villages.

In one round all the panellists, except Mr Pickover, were blindfolded and then joined on stage by a mystery guest.
They had to guess, by asking questions, 'What is the editor holding in his hands?' The answer turned out to be a baby gorilla from this summer's popular Norwich GoGoGorillas' trail.
Paddy Seligman, chairman of We Care addressed the audience during the evening and explained the charity's important work in funding short breaks and leisure activities for Norfolk's unpaid carers.
The charity can also provide them with labour-saving equipment such as dishwashers, washing machines and tumble driers.
The occasion was recorded by BBC Radio Norfolk and will be broadcast over the Christmas period.
'We only do it once a year now and it's more fun than grown men and women should have with all their clothes on,' said Mr Clayton.
