OTHER Get North brings you an evening of fabulous local comedy

September 22, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Free – £10



A fantastic evening of comedy from local comedians Mike Milligan and John Scott……This show is not to be missed, two of the best North East comedians in one night.

Mike is a resident compere at Newcastle’s Hyena Comedy Cafe, which was acclaimed as ‘One of the top ten comedy clubs in the country’. (Daily Telegraph).

He provided the voiceover for Viz Comic’s highly successful Sid the Sexist DVD, as well as performing his character live in concert at Newcastle City Hall.

He also writes a popular weekly column in the Evening Chronicle and has performed a sell out one man show ‘Shearer shared me Pram’

“Snappy, sharp and packed full of belly laughs, Mike Milligan stole the show.”

Edinburgh Evening News

“He has one of the quickest comedy brains on the circuit, so any potential hecklers should be warned – be good or be bettered.”

Evening Gazette


John is widely known for his the political satire panel show Sod the Tories (And Have a Nice Week) which he performs with a coalition of fellow comics monthly at the Stand Comedy Club. This show is now gathering a strong following and the Podcast is also becoming a hit with comedy fans. As well as being a concise satirical show the event is also drawing attention for its “Ask the activist” segment where the panel interviews people from as diverse backgrounds as Trade Union movements , The People’s Assembly, local TV journalism and a variety of political causes. It has just been confirmed for another 12 month run at The Stand Comedy Club.

“John Scott is an excellent comic and this is without doubt the first step on the road to a long and successful career in comedy.”


“ Always plays a blinder. Never hits a dry patch. People were literally in tears of laughter.”


We are really looking forward to this show!!!

Doors at 7.30pm for 8pm start

Tickets only £10 per person (including booking fee)
