Reliably informed

Stand-up comedian Lee Kyle has decided it is time for his very first tour. A 30+ date national tour, which also seeks to answer the question “what happens if you do a tour while not actually being famous?” With North East dates including The Chillingham in Heaton as the launch date on Thursday 4th January, and the closing show a brilliant homecoming at The Customs House in South Shields on Thursday 21st June.

The former professional wrestler turned comic had a successful book Spandex Ballet – How I Wasted My Twenties Wrestling about his time in the ring, and is also one half of the podcast team behind the popular Which Is The Best? with Sammy Dobson, who’ll be his support act for much of the tour. (Check out their NARC exclusive podcast here).

With bits of TV and radio behind him too, Lee is a hugely respected comedy act and one of the most inventive to come out of a quite rich North East comedy scene. With a real playful silliness to his act, his shows are always memorable, and you can find full tour dates here. North East comedy fans will have ample opportunity to see him with shows at Mr Ants in Hexham 10th January, Bubbles in Ashington on 17th January, Tynemouth’s Surf Cafe 18th January, The Railway in Gateshead on 28th January, Bilton Hall in Jarrow on 18th February, Stanley’s Alun Armstrong Theatre on 24th February with Cumberland Arms on 25th February. There’s also Independent in Sunderland on 9th March, Westgarth in Middlesbrough on 11th and The Exchange in North Shield on 17th March. With The Stand Comedy Club on 17th April, Darlington’s Old English Gentleman on 24th May and Arts Centre Washington on 25th May, there are lots of dates to snap up tickets for.

Lee Kyle launches his tour at The Chillingham in Heaton on Thursday 4th January, and the closing show is at The Customs House in South Shields on Thursday 21st June.
