Seymour Mace Makes It Up As He Goes Along

Sunday 11th August 2019

Seymour Mace makes it up as he goes along. Come and join Seymour and any of his mates he can con into working for nothing as they make stuff up on the spot relying only on the fact that they're funny.
It could turn out to be anything from a regular stand up night to an impromptu scripted performance of the film 'Zulu Dawn'.
So; y'know, you should come down, or not, whatever you like really, I'm not trying to twist your arm but, if you fancy it it'd be nice to see you.
There, I said it. Happy now?

The Suggestibles

Thursday 15th August 2019

You supply the Suggestions. They supply the laughs!
If you like Whose Line is it Anyway? you’ll LOVE the Suggestibles’ two-hour improv comedy joyride! Their show is a speeding rollercoaster of improv games, skits, sketches and songs – including ‘Aspects Of …’ their ingenious improvised musical in the second half. The team is boldly theatrical, wildly irreverent and utterly hilarious.
The whole night is based on audience suggestions, so come armed with ideas as their favourite suggestion of the night wins two free tickets to another Suggestibles show at the Stand. The Suggestibles play here the third Thursday of every month (December varies).
Off-the-cuff, off-the-wall and every show a one-off.

‘One of the hottest comedy tickets in the North East’ Guardian
‘The best thing to happen to hilarity since the advent of the laugh’ NARC
‘There’s nothing more satisfying than comedy which makes you ache with laughter – and The Suggestibles provide exactly that. It seems there’s no end to their talents’ Journal
‘Undoubtedly one of the greatest acts in the region’ NUS Courier
‘Two hours of comedy gold’ Shields Gazette
‘Something of a phenomenon’ The Crack
