The next few months promise to be a bundle of laughs for comedy fans in the North East.
A whole host of top comics are playing at venues around the region.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow for the outrageous Frankie Boyle’s show at the Tyne Theatre & Opera House in Newcastle.
His new show, Hurt Like You’ve Never Been Loved, arrives at the venue on Friday, 20 November.
Tickets, priced £20 plus the usual booking fees, go on sale at 10am HERE and in person at the box office.
Here’s 5 more top comics who are visiting the region soon:
1. Chatty Man Alan Carr is yapping his way around the UK and Ireland with his new stand-up show ‘Yap, Yap, Yap!’
The BAFTA and British Comedy Award winning comedian, author and chat show supremo returns to his roots with his hilarious take on life.
He’s at Newcastle City Hall on 22-24 October. Click HERE for ticket details.
2. Jimmy Carr has been described as ‘the hardest working man in comedy’. Which, let’s face facts, is not that impressive.
It’s like being the ‘Tallest Dwarf’ or the ‘Healthiest Glaswegian’. Really not that big a deal.
Funny Business, his latest stand-up show, is at the City Hall on Friday, 2 October. Click HERE for ticket availability.
3. South Shields’ own Chris Ramsey, a Celebrity Juice regular, and the star of TV sitcom Hebburn, will be recording his first-ever DVD at the Tyne Theatre and Opera House on Wednesday, 7 October.
In two special shows he’ll explore getting older, taking responsibility, and all the other terrifying realisations that come with being dragged kicking and screaming into modern adulthood.

4. American stand-up Doug Stanhope is coming to Tyne Theatre & Opera House as part of his Autumn UK Tour.
Described as “the most fearless man in comedy”, he’s appeared at several major comedy festivals, including Montreal Just For Laughs, the Chicago Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe,
Tickets for the gig on Sunday, 4 October, are £30 and can be ordered HERE.
5. Arguably the biggest laughter-maker of the lot is coming to the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle for two nights in November.
Michael McIntyre, whose previous tour Showtime was the biggest selling comedy tour in the world in 2012, will be at the venue on 27-27 November.
He has released three best-selling DVDs, and recently made his debut as a chat show host on BBC1.
Now he is set to return to the stage in what promises to be his biggest and funniest tour yet, with Paul Tonkinson as special guest.
Tickets are £35 and £50 from HERE.
