£15 – £20

This year, Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland is 40 years old!

We have a whole year of fundraising events planned, including a comedy night on International Men’s Day, with a line-up of hilarious men.


The entire evening will be hosted by the fabulous, Lou Conran – superlative storyteller and a regular on the BBC, ITV and Channel 4. Lou 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.

First on the bill is Hal Branson, an established comedian on the North East comedy circuit. Fresh from a hugely successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Hal has been described by NARC Magazine as ‘effortlessly watchable’ and counts The Huffington Post amongst his fans. Hal is guaranteed to win audiences over with his heart-warming wordplay.

Following on from Hal is former professional wrestler-turned-comedian, Lee Kyle. Described by the BBC as a ‘top up-and-coming comedy performer,’ Lee has just returned from his third Fringe performance, and will bring his delightful silliness to Newcastle this International Men’s Day.

Third up is Matt Reed, who was born and bred in Sunderland. No stranger to The Stand, Matt has seen success in the forms of his stand-up Junk Box, and his podcast Mother’s Ruin, in which he declares his love for gin.

Headlining on the night is London-born stand up, Dane Baptiste. Original, provocative and exceptionally prolific, Dane has been hailed as one of the most exciting acts to break the circuit in years. Dane’s long list of credits include hosting Live at the Apollo and Live from the Comedy Store; Mock the Week and 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, as well as his own BBC sitcom, Sunny D. Dane 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 Stand Comedy Club.
