Fancy a feel-good laugh? You’re in luck, as tickets are now on sale for a comedy night with a cause. Taking place at The Stand Comedy Club on Monday 19 November, the Men’s Comedy Night is in aid of Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland – and it’s one not to be missed!

The entire evening will be hosted by the fabulous, Lou Conran – superlative storyteller and a regular on the BBC, ITV and Channel 4. A habitual performer at the Edinburgh Fringe, Conran will ensure the audience is in good hands – thanks to her masterful ability to tease audience members while becoming their best friend for the evening.

Headlining on the night is London-born stand up, Dane Baptiste. Original, provocative and exceptionally prolific, Baptiste has been hailed as one of the most exciting acts to break the circuit in years. Making history in 2014 as the first black British act to be nominated for a Comedy Award at the Fringe, Baptiste’s long list of credits include hosting Live at the Apollo on BBC Two and Live from the Comedy Store on Comedy Central; Tonight at the London Palladium; BBC Two’s Mock the Week; Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, as well as his own BBC sitcom, Sunny D. In 2018, Baptiste set out on a massive World Tour with his smash hit stand up hour, G.O.D. (Gold. Oil. Drugs.) and now, the critically-acclaimed comic is set to delight at Newcastle’s very own The Stand Comedy Club.

The Men’s Comedy Night will take place on Monday 19 November from 7pm – 10pm at The Stand Comedy Club, 31 High Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1EW. Tickets are £20 for general admission and £15 for concessions. Please note that an additional Eventbrite Booking Fee will be charged. Tickets:
