The Stand this March

Massive March Shows at The Stand

They say laughter is the best medicine, so beat the winter blues and spring into March with some top class comedy

We love a bloody good belly laugh here at Nights Out In Newcastle.  So we’ve listed some of the most humorous offerings this March from the amazing team at The Stand Comedy Club, with an outstanding collection of solo shows just for you from some of the finest acts around.



Josie Long: Something Better

Tuesday 7th – Tickets & Info here (Limited Tickets Available)

This is a show about optimism and hopefulness and about looking for people and things to look up to. It’s about wanting more from life than it might be up for giving out.  It’s about struggling with realising who and what you are and really feeling like an outsider for the first time.

Following the international sell-out success of her previous show Cara Josephine across the UK, Europe, in Australia and New York, the star of BBC Radio 4’s Romance and Adventure, All of the Planet’s Wonders and presenter of Shortcuts, tours her eighth solo stand-up show nationwide.



Simon Munnery: Standing Still

Sunday 12th – Tickets & Info here

Multi award-winning comedian Simon Munnery offers up a new stand-up show. An opening to die for, seven wry observations, a tone poem, four fresh skits and two new commandments. 

Simon is the award-winning star of Comedy Central’s Alternative Comedy Experience – as seen on BBC2’s Culture Show and heard on Radio 4’s News Quiz, amongst others.

Monday 13th – Tickets & Info here

This Good Grief is a Richard Gadd Special!

Richard Gadd brings one of the most memorable, genre-busting performances in years with his award-winning 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show. 

A stand-up routine that goes to the depths of who he is – and what it means to be a Man. 



Stuart Goldsmith – Compared To What

Tuesday 14th – Tickets & Info here

Fresh from appearances on ‘Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central’ (Comedy Central), ‘As Yet Untitled’ (Dave) and a month of packed houses at the Edinburgh Fringe, Stuart Goldsmith presents a new hour of funny, not entirely about becoming a parent.

Iain Stirling: Onwards!

Sunday 19th – Tickets & Info here

You may recognise his voice as the narrator of ITV2’s “Love Island” or recognise his face as the host of Scottish BAFTA (best children’s show) award winning panel show “The Dog Ate my Homework” (CBBC). Other credits include The Now Show (Radio 4), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central and Drunk History (Comedy Central).

In his new show, Iain explores the perception of his generation within today’s society, as well as looking at their function within it.  Are all young people self-entitled, ego maniacs that can’t get off their phones?  Come to the show and find out…Or just google it or some shit!

‘Provides an intriguing twentysomething perspective on the current state of his nation’ Guardian

‘One of Scotland’s hottest newcomers’ Scotsman

Richard Herring, King of the Edinburgh Fringe, Metro columnist and the UK’s Podfather (RHLSTP, AIOTM) picks his favourite routines from his 12 one-man shows and crams them into 90 minutes for your delectation.  From his deconstruction of the genealogy of Christ to him proving that racists are less racist than liberals, via some of the best knob jokes in the business.  Will your favourite routine make the cut?  A great introduction to this influential cult comedian for the newcomer and a welcome greatest hits for long term fans.  

‘A gloriously infantile delight in mischief, provocation and inspired rudeness’ Guardian



Josh Howie’s Messed Up

Tuesday 21st – Tickets & Info here

Fresh from creating and starring in his own BBC Radio 4 sitcom and having performed his unique brand of painfully honest stand-up at the top comedy clubs and festivals in the UK and internationally, Josh Howie is embarking on his first UK tour. It might not be easy living with him and it’s not easy being him, but it is easy to laugh at his antics as he strives to be an amazing husband and super-dad of four.  And fails. 

‘Howie is brilliantly clever, honest, utterly engaging and absolutely fearless.’  Scotsman

‘A fabulous storyteller who can make you concentrate in silence then erupt into a fit of giggles.’ Metro 

‘Howie is a name to watch.’ Times 

‘Circuit legend.’ Time Out 

‘It’s refreshing to see someone like Howie tell a wider story about his life while taking comic opportunities at every turn.’ Independent

‘There are very few who can touch him.’  List



Tony Law: A Law Undo His-Elf What Welcome

Sunday 26th – Tickets & Info here

tony law at the stand comedy club

Multi award-winning comedian, Tony Law embarks on a UK tour with a brand new show of the inimitable surreal comedy-art that has made him one of the most celebrated live performers in the UK. 

In A Law Undo His-elf What Welcome, Tony Law is closer than ever to nonsense nirvana.  Behold the comedy event horizon.  Without a hint of a joke, this powerful show has achieved a sort of comedy which aims at making no sense at all and yet, and yet, and yet it means everything.  Every dog damned thing ever.  Science called and they want their goal back.  Law has burst the net.  You will feel sick with awe.  You will barf wonder.
