The Harry and Chris Show 2

Monday 4th December 2017

After last year’s sell-out run of their debut show in Edinburgh, Harry Baker and Chris Read bring their unique mix of comedy, melody, poetry and best-matery to venues nationwide! Ranging from pandas in crisis to Robot Wars, they bring love and laughter to a world that needs both more than ever.
'A combination of catchy hooks and breath-taking verbal ingenuity makes this a winning hour… The quality and quantity of laughs on offer is generous and yet the show is cynicism-free, the tone unapologetically feel-good' **** BroadwayBaby
Harry Baker – 'Blistering wordplay' ***** ThreeWeeks
Chris Read – 'Brilliant' Evening Standard

The Suggestibles

Thursday 7th December 2017

You supply the Suggestions. They supply the laughs!
If you like Whose Line is it Anyway? you’ll LOVE the Suggestibles’ two-hour improv comedy joyride! Their show is a speeding rollercoaster of improv games, skits, sketches and songs – including ‘Aspects Of …’ their ingenious improvised musical in the second half. The team is boldly theatrical, wildly irreverent and utterly hilarious.
The whole night is based on audience suggestions, so come armed with ideas as their favourite suggestion of the night wins two free tickets to another Suggestibles show at the Stand. The Suggestibles play here the third Thursday of every month (December varies).
Off-the-cuff, off-the-wall and every show a one-off.
Find more on the Suggestibles at thesuggestibles.com and on Facebook and Twitter

‘The best thing to happen to hilarity since the advent of the laugh’ NARC
‘There’s nothing more satisfying than comedy which makes you ache with laughter – and The Suggestibles provide exactly that. It seems there’s no end to their talents’ Journal
‘Undoubtedly one of the greatest acts in the region’ NUS Courier
‘Two hours of comedy gold’ Shields Gazette

Stand Spotlight - CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

Sunday 10th December 2017

For each Stand Spotlight some of the best up and coming comedians are invited to shine a light on a different theme, tying in with a local charity who receive the ticket proceeds as a donation.
For the final show of the year, we wanted to do a bit extra so we're running Stand Spotlight on Christmas in aid of The People's Kitchen , a local volunteer run charity that provides food, friendship and practical support to those in need. Around 140 hot meals are served every night that The People’s Kitchen is operational. That equates to around 40,000 meals per year – just short of a million acts of kindness since it was founded in 1985.
In addition to the ticket price, we're asking everyone who comes along to bring a bag of food to donate. Particularly cans and dried food are welcomed and we will transport everything we receive on the night to The People's Kitchen.
Please join us to support brand new comedy, have a big Christmas knees up and help make the festive season that little bit more bearable for friends who need our help!
With host Si Beckwith plus Stu Edwards , Elizabeth Johnson, Natalie Sweeney , Sammy Dobson , Stanley Brooks , Daniel Triscott and your very special festive guest Seymour Mace !
To ensure the maximum amount of money reaches the charity, we are not taking advance payments for this show. Tickets are £5 and can be reserved by calling our Box Office on 0191 300 9700.

Join Lee Kyle and whatever idiots he can rope in for the most ridiculous and fun kids show in the entire history of the universe. It's a Christmas special so he'll probably think of something to do with Santa or Rudolph or carols or something.
You'd have to be a pretty rubbish kid not to enjoy it. Same for you adults, get yourself along! Only if you're bringing kids mind you, otherwise you'll look a bit unsettling.
'Full of psychotic, inclusive charm that even the hardest heart can't help but be taken in by' Gigglebeats
Best suited for 8-12's. Sorry, no under 5's and all young comedy fans must be accompanied by an adult.
