Owner description: The Suggestibles improv comedy group performs at The Stand Comedy Club the second Monday of every month (December varies). The six-strong cast takes suggestions from the audience to inspire scenes, sketches and songs. If you like Who's Line is it Anyway? You'll love the Suggestibles! The night is different to stand-up. It's theatrical with a friendly, party atmos. If you can't make a Monday night at the Stand, Google 'The Suggestibles' - they play many other nights at clubs and theatres about town. The Stand Comedy Club is in central Newcastle, serving up top comedy and bistro food seven days/nights a week. Entrance to the basement comedy club is via the Stand Bistro, with an 'accessible' entrance to the side, and a terrace to the rear. The Suggestibles: "One of the hottest comedy tickets in the Northeast' The Guardian. As seen in The Times Top 5 Comedy Nights Out Nationwide.

“First class comedy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

From their regular monthly shows to the infamous Christmas panto The Suggestibles deliver time and time again. While the show format is often similar the delivery is anything but. Taking suggestions from the audience the team construct exceptionally funny, laugh a minute dialogue. The main monthly shows end with an impro musical Aspects of... This for me is the best part of the show and there have been numerous examples of comedy genius which have reduced me to tears of laughter. The team are outstanding but a special shout out for Ian, Bev, Carl and Alex as regulars. Ian's characterisation is phenomenal from Lady Eleanor to Scone he has produced some of the unforgettable comedy moments. Alex's excellent keyboard skills, quick wit and infectious laugh often prolong the side splitting laughter of the audience. Carl and Bev have the ability to turn their hand to anything and who can forget 'Sugar Fags'. This show is not be missed and with an entry fee of £5 (or less with concessions), excellent food and a well organised bar with friendly staff the entertainment is first class and the venue matches them

“One of the funniest things I have ever seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

I can honestly say this was one of the funniest comedy shows I've ever seen (and I've been to a lot!). This is a must see and amazingly good value for money. I just want to see them again and again!

“Amazing gig”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

I went to see this show twice and I laugh so much both times that my cheeks hurt. I will definitely go a third time.

“Laugh a second”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

I've been to see The Suggestibles about 10 times now including the Rat Races with the workshop guys - they are without a doubt some of the most skilled entertainers I have ever seen. I don't know how they do it but they have the room howling with laughter with a higher rate of gags per minute than Airplane! The stuff they come out with is just genius and they make your face hurt for a good while afterwards from grinning so much. Best comedy night you could hope for.
