TEZ ILYAS: TEZTIFY

Tuesday 8th May 2018

Armed with his trademark cheek and uncompromising approach, Tez presents his slick, smart and typically subversive new stand-up show. As seen on BBC2’s Mock The Week, Live at the BBC, Channel 4’s The Last Leg – and heard on BBC Radio Four with two series of Tez Talks.
‘Tez Ilyas’ political stand-up is candy floss with a razorblade inside: sweet and familiar at first, then shockingly, painfully sharp. It takes serious talent to pull off’ ★★★★ Telegraph
‘A mischievous show with serious intent – Ilyas has the slickness of U.S. comics, and the gags to back it up’ ★★★★ Guardian
‘Thoughtful but radiantly entertaining’ ★★★★ Times
‘Articulate, passionate, thoughtful – he is equally light entertainer and heavyweight pontificator’ ★★★★ London Evening Standard

Dear Sir/Madam
Good Grief is here! Join us for an evening of comedy from emerging talent and our closest comedy affiliate. We take our comedy fresh and tasty so we're keeping the doors low and the quality high. Expect some stellar acts to drop into the North East for this. Four top acts, one experienced compere and a cracking headliner for 3 diddly squid - lovely stuff!
Yours with a ton of love and really properly decent hand shake.
Good Grief
Hot food available in the club or why not treat yourself to some pre-show dining at The Stand Bistro open Mon/Tues from 5pm (show nights only), Wed-Sat from 11am and noon on Sundays.

Richard Herring: Oh Frig, I'm 50! - 1.30pm show

Sunday 20th May 2018

I only regret the people I didn’t have sex with..... And 60% of the people I did have sex with. 'Podfather' Guardian and star of Radio 4’s Relativity, Richard Herring gets to the half century (against all odds) and looks at how his life has changed in the last decade, from irresponsible, single kidult, literally fighting his way through a mid-life crisis, to married father who is mid-way to the telegram from the Queen (though given she will be 140 in 2067 , she might forget to send it). Following on from 'Oh F***, I’m 40!' , this is the second (and let’s face it, almost certainly penultimate) instalment in Herring’s once-a-decade examination of ageing. 'A gloriously infantile delight in mischief, provocation and inspired rudeness' Guardian .

Angela Barnes - Fortitude

Monday 21st May 2018

'She’s just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic' Guardian
Following another sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival the Mock The Week regular and host of BBC R4’s Newsjack Angela Barnes will be taking her ‘beautifully structured show’ Scotsman Fortitude on the road.
On November 9th 2016, two momentous things happened to Angela, which have deeply affected her. Donald Trump won the US election and she turned 40.
Now, Angela is in no rush to join the ranks of middle aged, she’s only just getting started. She didn’t become a comedian until 33, only learnt to swim when she was 37, didn’t fall in love until 38 and passed her driving test at 39. Why the hurry? She is un-pensioned, un-married, un-mortgaged and a fully paid-up member of the Peter Pan generation. People have stopped asking Barnes what she’s going to be when she grows up, and instead want to know when she is going to settle down; she hasn’t been bothered by the ticking of the biological clock, thus far – maybe it’s missing batteries. But what happens when the choices you make aren’t your choice anymore? Does her body have different ideas about the future?
'Storming hour of stand-up' ★★★★ Fest
Before becoming a comedian, Angela worked in health and social care. Since then Angela has become a regular on BBC’s The News Quiz, Newsjack and Mock The Week. She has also appeared on BBC Three’s Russell Howard’s Good News, Russell Kane’s Whistle Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2), and BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show.
'feels like a sure-fire bet the instant she utters her opening lines' Scotsman
