George came to Newcastle as a wide-eyed Greek boy. 2018 will find him having spent exactly half his life in Britain and half in Greece.

Zoe Lyons - Entry Level Human

Friday 5th October 2018

She's a regular on 'Mock the Week' and a much-loved figure on 'Live At the Apollo' as well as being all over Radio 4 - for whom she's making her very own series in 2018, after extensive stints on 'The News Quiz', 'Just a Minute', 'The Now Show' and plenty more. All the makes it sound like Zoe Lyons has some sort of idea what she's doing in life. But does she? Or is she the perfect example of an Entry Level Human?
Decide for yourself, as this hugely popular comic returns with a fresh crop of 'quick-fire observational gags, delivered with utter conviction' Chortle, not to mention 'proper laugh-out-loud one-liners' Herald. And, she 'has what it takes to delight any crowd'. That one's from the Guardian. Are you going to argue with them? Actually, don't answer that.
Just come and see Zoe to find out.

Scott Gibson - Anywhere But Here

Saturday 6th October 2018

Award-winning comedian Scott Gibson is back on the road with his eagerly anticipated third solo hour, Anywhere But Here.
Scott was just 16 when he first tasted freedom from the shackles of parental control. Only a wee thing, he was accompanied by an army of seven fearless school friends as they left the rural idylls of Renfrewshire behind them, setting course for a voyage of discovery.
Their destination? Kavos, of course. Where else?
Delivered in his breathlessly inimitable style, Gibson takes you on an epic odyssey that charts the bullheaded adventures and choppy waters of youth. A reflective and blisteringly funny treatise on the escapism and hedonism that travel promises, this is a story about friendship, love, pool parties, travel insurance, pushing your limits, plunging headfirst into the deep and the Greek third-choice goalie.
In recent years, Scott has successfully established himself as one of the best Scottish comedians of his generation, a title that was cemented when he received the Edinburgh Comedy Awards’ Best Newcomer trophy at the 2016 Fringe. He is also known as resident MC for BBC Introduces in Scotland, as host of The Hashtag Show, and for supporting some of the biggest names in comedy on their national tours.
Winner of the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer 2016.
'A big, bold, belter of a debut… riotously funny… his storytelling skills are undoubtedly degree-level standard' ***** Herald
'The most I’ve laughed this week is in Gibson’s snortingly hilarious hour…a huge number of laughs from beginning to end' ***** Chortle
'Irvine Welsh meets Billy Connoll' ***** Evening Standard
'You’ll be left howling throughout his set…this guy has no shortage of talent… gut-bustingly funny' ***** Broadway Baby
'You need to remember his name because he’s going to be big… an absolute pick of the Fringe' ***** Mirror
Duration 1 hour.

Ever since he was a small boy, all Evans really wanted was to be recognised by the world as a man of genius. He has, until now, remained thwarted. The world seems increasingly indifferent to true genius of any kind, let alone Evans'. Endlessly distracted by the trivial, we allow the classical tools of grammar, logic and rhetoric to lie unregarded in the shed of consciousness, rusting to a picturesque hue that would actually look really great on Instagram. But which filter? Hmmm…
