To support Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland, comedy collective Felt Nowt welcome a host of female comedians at Tyne Theatre & Opera House to celebrate International Women’s Day on Tuesday 8th March, simultaneously showing solidarity in raising money for a charity which affects women daily.

Amazing talent supporting the cause includes up and coming comics as well as established names including Louise Young, Lauren Pattison, Rachel Jackson, Catherine Young, Katherine Tanney, Anja Atkinson, Hannah Walker, Lauren Stone, Estelle Anderson, Elaine Robertson, Zoe, Sam Mayes, Catherine Scott, Julie Grady Thomas and Kelly Edgar, with the show being hosted by Sammy Dobson.

The serious importance of the cause must be highlighted; Rape Crisis works to provide sexual violence support services to women and girls via counselling, helplines and professional training. It is an incredibly valuable resource, and the support from the comedy industry really emphasises a welcoming and friendly atmosphere that is created from the support network.

Tyne To Stand Up takes place at Tyne Theatre & Opera House, Newcastle on Tuesday 8th March.
