Russell Kane

Right man, Wrong age


Weds 05 Apr
ARC, Stockton-On-Tees

Tickets: £17.00

Box office: 01642 525 199
Doors: 7:45pm / Show: 8:00pm / 16+





EXTRA DATE BY HUGE PUBLIC DEMAND!

He stormed the stage at ARC last summer, with a show that sold out months in advance!

And, great news for anyone who missed out last time, Russell Kane is heading back to Stockton for an extra date, with his Right Man, Wrong Age tour extended by huge public demand.

Are you 16-years-old, yet feel 21? Are you 40, but tragically faking 25? Or maybe you're full-on 80 years, with the heart of three oxen and the sex drive of a bonobo chimp?

Don't worry: this is normal. No one is ever the 'right age' - it's the beauty and the curse of being a real person.

Russell is known by millions of TV fans after a string of barnstorming gigs on BBC1's Live at the Apollo. The multi-award winning comic has also hosted three series of BBC3's Live at the Electric, and was a regular on ITV2's Celebrity Juice and I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! Now!

Nominated four times for the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Award before winning Best show in 2010, he then went on to make history as the first comic to win both the Edinburgh Comedy Award and Melbourne Comedy Festival's Barry Award in the same year. Famed for his critically acclaimed tours, he's since been wowing crowds at sell-out shows across the globe. Best buy early for this one!

A seriously good comedian. - The Times


Paul Sinha

Postcards from the Z list


Fri 14 Apr
ARC, Stockton-On-Tees

Tickets: £14.00 / £12.00 (Concs)

Box office: 01642 525 199
Doors: 7:45pm / Show: 8:00pm / 18+





He sold out an intimate preview months in advance here in Stockton 18 months ago - so don't miss Paul Sinha now he's back with a bang with this huge Edinburgh hit!

Millions of TV fans love Paul as the white-suited quiz king on ITV's teatime smash The Chase - but we know him best as one the best comics you'll find this side of anywhere.

And now the Edinburgh Award nominated comic is back on the road after a self-imposed exile during which real life took over.

Looking back, life as a travelling single gaysian delivering lefty liberal jokes was quite straightforward.

Now he has to juggle the responsibilities of being an uncle, being in an actual relationship for the first time in 20 years - and being that bloke, from that quiz, in that poorly fitting white suit. It's not easy!

Hilariously funny, passionate and articulate. - Chortle

Wonderfully inventive & intelligent. - Evening Standard

Doors: 7:45pm / Show: 8:00pm / 16+





Top telly treat ahead!

Two years after storming ARC with a barnstorming sold-out gig, Mock the Week's Andy Parsons is coming back to Stockton with a brand-new show!

Worried about your job? Worried about your family? Worried about yourself? Worried about the health service? Education? Climate change? World War 3? Worried about worrying?

Sod it! Come and have a laugh about it. It's one of the things we do best. Or is it?

Was it something we did best but like everything else has now gone West? Or South? Or East?

Ah - go on. Take a risk. Put on your lucky pants and your party shoes - and get yourself on a night out. Or maybe come out dressed in a binbag, top hat and clogs. We could all use a laugh.

As seen on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, QI etc - and repeated on Dave.

Box office: 01642 729 729 or 01642 81 51 81
Doors: 8:00pm / 16+





What is real? Who are we? Where did this baby come from?

In Re:Birth, Russell Brand wrestles with these questions while unravelling the matrix of modern media, politics, sex, fatherhood and death. Join one of comedy's fiercest talents as he tries to make sense of life having just made a new one.

Describing the show, Russell said: How do we make sense of the madness of our lives once we become parents? What am I going to tell my daughter about conformity and responsibility? What happens if she grows up to be like me or, worse, date someone like me?

Since rising to fame in 2003, Russell Brand has established himself as one of the world's most celebrated stand-up comedians.

Aside from stand-up, Russell is also a phenomenally successful broadcaster, actor, author, podcaster, columnist, political commentator as well as mental health and drug rehabilitation activist.

Arena-level stand-up that asks us to think as well as laugh. - The Guardian

One of the most impressive sights of the comedy year. - The Telegraph
