Comedy clubs and shows in NewcastleGateshead

The North East has produced some of the country's most successful stand-up comedians like Ross Noble and Sarah Millican, so it comes as no surprise that there's not a lack of comedy shows in Newcastle.

Utilita Arena in Newcastle and the O2 City Hall Newcastle both attract a host of big comedy nights in Newcastle, stand-ups and touring shows with everyone from Russel Howard to Michael McIntyre making the line-up.

If you're looking for a more intimate night of comedy in Newcastle then you can visit one of the city's clubs. The Stand Comedy Club Newcastle, one of the newest additions to the region's humour hub, offers comedy gigs every night of the week.  

Tyne Theatre and Opera House are fast becoming the theatre of choice for comedians, stand-up and comedy acts in Newcastle. The Victorian theatre has welcomed big stars including James Acaster, Celeste Barbar, Ben Elton and Josh Widdicombe.

And for something more involved visit The Cumberland Arms, residential home of The Suggestibles, an improv-comedy troupe who take your suggestions to inspire the show.
