Eight North East Comedy Shows to Book Now
Plenty of hilarious comedians are heading to the region, and you won’t want to miss their shows
SOFIE HAGEN: FAT JOKES
ARC, Stockton Arts Centre
Sofie has created a collection of fat jokes that you’ll actually find funny. She doesn’t take herself too seriously, so you shouldn’t either.

Host of the smash hit podcast Have a Word, Dan has been taking to stages up and down the country for 20 years. He’s promising plenty of laughs with his new show Smasher as he shares his observations in his usual hilarious way.
ISY SUTTIE: JACKPOT
The Stand, Newcastle
0191 232 0707
Isy has always been seeking ways to make her life more exciting (we think ouija boards, exploring derelict houses and jumping off things are an extreme way of doing that!). She often meets others who share the same love of pushing boundaries but things have changed now she has children and a partner who hates surprises. As she returns to the stages, she’s exploring whether her adventurous streak is really gone.
Gala Theatre, Durham
0300 026 6600
Jess won Best Show and Best Breakthrough Act in the Chortle Awards 2020, and now she’s back with her new show all about how to keep time from whizzing by, promising lots of laughs.
SCOTT BENNETT: GREAT SCOTT
The Witham, Barnard Castle
Scott has written for North East comedy legends Chris Ramsey and Jason Manford and has been on the stand-up circuit for a decade. He’s in huge demand as a comedy writer, so if you haven’t seen his shows yet, now’s the time.
SMILE FOR A NIGHT VARIETY SHOW
Playhouse Whitley Bay
This afternoon of family fun is brought to you by CBBC and panto stars Danny Adams and Clive Webb, raising money for Newcastle children’s charity Smile For Life. Some of the best Geordie names will take to the stage, including comedian Lost Voice Guy (winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2018), so plenty of laughter is promised.
DANIEL HOWELL: WE’RE ALL DOOMED!
O2 City Hall, Newcastle
