Hilarious man for nights in a row, I thought of the show highly and so did my parents when they went on a different night and my boyfriends parents wen they went on a different night again. It's a great venue to see comedians and even when upstairs it's been a good view and a great show. I've seen musicians here as well which have also been good because to just sit and listen was great (City and Colour, Ray Lamontagne and the Pariah Dogs etc) but I don't understand how bands like Trivium have played here. That baffles me.
The only problem with this venue in the lack of leg room, in the past I've been upstairs and it's been unbearable having to sit so cramped for so long. As nice as the venue is it is a tad dated and I would love it if they did it up just a little to provide a little bit more leg room for us tall people.
On a side note, the swimming pool at city hall is small and the one time I went it was packed and you had to zigzag around people. There are bigger pools not too far from the center - literally a bus away - which are better (Jesmond pool, Byker pool, Hadrian Leisure etc)
