The Suggestibles

Thursday 21st March 2019

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.

‘One of the hottest comedy tickets in the North East’ Guardian
‘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
‘Something of a phenomenon’ The Crack

Shappi Khorsandi: Skittish Warrior... Confessions of a Club Comic

Sunday 24th March 2019

Comedian, author, cultural icon and - most recently - idiot who agreed to be tortured on 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!', Shappi Khorsandi is a woman of many parts. But live comedy is where she's in her element, and now - after her spell in the jungle - she sets out for the more welcoming destination of Newcastle.
A brand new show packed full of sharp-tongued gags and cultural observation, this is Shappi's warts and all journey through the 90s comedy scene, to breaking through on telly and then letting it all slip away.
As heard on Radio 4, read in two warmly-received books, and seen sleeping in a hammock.
'She has plenty to say, and says it with pointedness and potency' Guardian
'Has the crowd in the palm of her hand' List
'Makes live comedy thrilling' Evening Standard
