Christmas Crackers

The Stand in Newcastle is all about big laughs this December, and they’re toting a line-up that reaches beyond the giggle and heads straight for the guffaw.

As a rather chaotic 2022 draws to a close, I think we could all do with a laugh. Step forward The Stand. Their December programme is stuffed full of goodies including their always brilliant Christmas Specials. This year they’re taking place on 15, 16 & 17 December and will feature a top-notch line-up including Nicola Mantalios (pictured – on hosting duties) along with Ryan Cullen, Raul Kohli and Larry Dean. Christmas cheer doesn’t get cheerier than this. They’re also running New Year Specials (27, 28, 29, 30 & 31 December) that will feature the always hilarious Sammy Dobson on hosting duties, with a line up headed up by one of the hottest stand-ups around, Carl Hutchinson. Other festive treats include Lee Kyle and Sammy Dobson’s ‘It’s A Wonderful Christmas Show’ (ripping off everyone’s fave Christmas film – 10, 11, 17, 18, 28 & 29 December) and Matt Reed’s ‘Xmas Knees Up’ (18 December).
