Born out of circumstances no comedian would wish for, Felt Nowt is a comedy company founded by North East stand-ups themselves during the pandemic. With sharp thinking from its founders, Felt Nowt not only became a new contact for those hiring the hottest local talent, it also ensured the top-notch stand-up we’re used to could come to us online as well as in person.

Now here we are, in a world where the dreamed-of is now tangible, and the comedy now comes with the nearby smell of tapas if you wish. After its debut in July, Felt Nowt is hitting the stage again at Laurel’s: the theatre, bar and Mexican and Geordie tapas establishment which is now its proud home every Friday and Saturday. August sees the treats keep coming, with local favourites Hal Branson, Si Beckwith, Lee Kyle and Sammy Dobson taking turns hosting three fellow huge names a night, including Lauren Pattison (Friday 6th and Saturday 14th), Steffen Peddie (Saturday 7th and Friday 13th), Omar Abid (Friday 20th and Saturday 21st) and George Zach (Friday 27th and Saturday 28th), to name just a few. As we carefully leave the sit-down world, it’s good to be back in the stand-up one with those who do it best.

Felt Nowt Comedy Club takes place every Friday and Saturday at Laurel’s, Whitley Bay
