Let’s face it, we could all do with a laugh right now. If you’ve exhausted streaming sites of their stand-up and comedy shows, and are craving something a bit more ‘real’, there are a couple of great options for you in the region. The Stand Comedy Club’s Saturday night livestreamed sets have gone down a storm over the lockdown period, consistently showing off some superb national and local talent.

Also in on the act this month are Tyne Theatre & Opera House, who kick off their first livestreamed comedy show on Friday 3rd July. Comics will be performing live on stage at the theatre, broadcasting via Twitch for your pleasure. Host Carl Hutchinson presides over a line-up which includes regional favourites Steffen Peddie, Nicola Mantalios-Thompson, Lauren Pattison and Gavin Webster, plus Carl will interview Tyneside legend Chris Ramsey.

The Grade I listed venue dates back to 1867 and has a celebrated history, from music hall to cinema and multi-purpose venue, it’s a treasured space for many. They’ve been hit hard by their enforced closure, so it’s hoped this fundraising show will provide a vital lifeline.
