Gavin Webster’s Northern Hemisphere Tour

Monday 1st May 2017

After a successful World Tour last year in FIVE different worldwide venues from South Durham to North Tyneside, Gavin Webster the self styled, joke engineering, Geordie King of the service stations brings his Northern Hemisphere tour to the Newcastle Stand on May 1st.
Expect a packed hour of biting, sneering satire with surreal twists and witty jokes so frequent, it’s akin to a fireman on a steam train shovelling coal in to the furnace to keep the laugh locomotive moving at record pace.
With dark observations, sardonic ukulele comedy numbers and majestic set pieces with soulless poetry to boot, you’ll realise you’ve watched one of the great alternative comedians and an antidote to the suit wearing arena comics of the day.
Support act as well and T shirts on sale.
‘A comedy street-fighter……he’ll use anything at hand to land a blow’ Chortle
‘His command of the room is doubtless….I was left with a really positive outlook on what stand up can be’ Comedy.co.uk
‘Like a cross between Bill Hicks and Geoff from Byker Grove’ Ross Noble
‘Some of his rants are wonderfully surreal, others disguise a fiery intelligence beneath the aggressive delivery…..few will be as palpably funny as this’ Sunday Herald
Hot food available in the club or why not treat yourself to some pre-show dining at The Stand Bistro open Mon/Tues from 5pm (show nights only), Wed-Sat from 11am and noon on Sundays.

Dean Friedman - In Concert

Sunday 21st May 2017

Dean Friedman first delighted UK and Ireland audiences with his chart-topping hit, Lucky Stars. The now classic single, paved the way for a slew of hits off Friedman's critically acclaimed album, "Well, Well" Said the Rocking Chair", including familiar tracks, Lydia, Rocking Chair, Woman of Mine, McDonald’s Girl and Ariel. In a very short time, Friedman had achieved legendary, pop-icon status and was acknowledged, by critics and fans alike, as one of the finest singer/songwriters of his generation.
Here’s what critics have to say:
'An amazing talent!' Sun
'Outstanding!' Record Business
'Songsmith extraordinaire!' Music Week
'Absolutely fabulous!' Hot Press
'Pop troubadour of choice!' Scotsman
'Dean Friedman is entirely unique and utterly brilliant' ThreeWeeks
Pursuing his career as a truly independent artist (his albums are financed, not by a major label, but directly by his fans via his website,www.deanfriedman.com ), Friedman has earned a loyal, international following with his insightful and compelling, true-to-life ‘story songs’. Songs like ‘Saturday Fathers’, ‘Jennifer’s Baby’, ‘Where Have All the Angels Flown?’, ‘Under the Weather’ and ‘It’s My Job’, have prompted enthusiastic audiences to proclaim his songs as ‘the soundtrack to their lives’, dealing as they do with family, friends, neighbors, work and the seemingly trivial, yet ultimately compelling, stuff of everyday life.
Friedman will be performing songs from throughout his three-decade career, including familiar, radio hits and fan favorites. Invite family and friends and join Friedman for an evening of powerful, poignant and hilarious songs about the ordinary and extraordinary lives we share.

Marcel Lucont: Whine List

Monday 22nd May 2017

France's finest flâneur brings a new interactive show to the baying masses. A kind of self-help group where everyone potentially leaves more depressed. Expect louche musings, deadpan wit and Gallic superiority.
As seen on BBC1’s The John Bishop Show and Sky Atlantic’s Set List.
