Comedians can spend literally months crafting their stand-up sets. The nerve wracking process involves creating jokes out of seemingly thin air that hopefully will make a room – maybe even a stadium for those really big names – laugh. So what happens if you condense that creative process into, say, a single day?

Felt Nowt are going to attempt this social experiment to see what can be achieved in the twelve hours in the run up to an actual live show in front of real people. Unless you happen to be a seasoned improv comic, it is surely a daunting task.

The process is simple: throw a bunch of local comedians into a room together for a single day. They must dream up a series of sketches that they hope will be comedy gold. You buy a ticket for a mere fiver, rock up at Bobik’s on Sunday 14th November, and see the fruits of their labour. Will you witness cutting edge hilarity, available for one night only? Or will you watch in horror as a bunch of people try desperately to do underprepared funnies? The latter is unlikely, as noted local comic Lee Kyle will be the guiding six new comedians, Kelly Edgar, Mike Wardley, Charlie Ellis, Luke Connell, Phil Erswell and Michael Perren, through the unique concept. Strap in for a night filled with unpredictable results!

Stand-Up In A Day takes place at Bobik’s, Newcastle on Sunday 14th November
