Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Highly-acclaimed Geordie stand-up comedian with numerous TV and radio credits to his name. An expert in the delivery of in-yer-face comedy, Dave's high-energy routine has left audiences around the globe gasping for breath and crying with laughter.
In 1989 Johns’ launched the Comedy Café on Westgate Road and invited the emerging Jack Dee and Jo Brand to appear, but realising they needed an MC stepped-up and did it himself. Finding he was rather good at it and pricing tickets at £3.75 including soup and a bun, the club became a city hot spot and Dave went on to host many more comedy stars including Eddie Izzard, Steve Coogan, Harry Hill and nervous 14 year old lad called Ross Noble who went on to do rather well for himself.
Johns became a successful comedian, touring throughout the UK, a regular with the Comedy Store Players and appearing on much loved TV shows like Never Mind the Buzzcocks and 8 Out of Ten Cats.
'He performs comedy's greatest magic, simply by being himself. A genuinely funny, engaging performer' (Glasgow Herald)
'He shifts from the sublime, to genius, to uproar in the blink of an eye - an extremely entertaining hour' (The Guardian).

John Whale tour dates
Since starting out doing stand up comedy in 2008, Nick Cranston has established himself as 'one of the North East of England's most promising comedians' (Gigglebeats).
Nick Cranston tour dates
A stand up comedian from the Northeast of England.
'Armed with props and a rapid gag rate, former professional wrestler Lee Kyle cuts a confident, if off-beat figure on stage. His jokes veer between the clever and the silly and deliver more than their fair share of belly laughs. Instantly likeable, Lee is quick thinking and witty with a well-written, beautifully crafted and, most importantly, hilarious set of jokes.' (Comedy CV)
'The highlight of the evening... Firing out laughs left, right and centre he managed to hit every person in the room... Lee Kyle was in a league of his own... both quirky and original and had the crowd roaring' (http://www.gigglebeats.co.uk)
'One of the regions best up-and-coming comic performers' (BBC Radio Tees).
Lee Kyle tour dates
Formerly of the comedy duo Mat & Faron, Matt Reed went solo in 2002, scoring Leicester Comedian Of The Year in 2003. An energetic and engaging performer, he's loaded with cheek and will make your eyes water.
'Absolutely hilarious... had the crowd rolling around' (BBC).
