The Giggle Beats Comedy Quiz has moved to the popular Stand Comedy Club on High Bridge. This month, hosted by Seymour Mace in his inimitable unflappable style, the quiz had rounds for Comedy General Knowledge, Pictures of Comics in their youth, Theme Tunes, Seymour Mace's "Shit Expressions" and Comedy News.

Seymour had a interesting relationship with the audience which included some industry experts such as Simon Donald and Lost Voice Guy Lee Ridley. It was a very funny situation with Seymour having to deal with some controversial interjections ...this only made it funnier. The prizes ranged from merchandise from Baby Cow Productions (Hebburn's creators) to Seymour's "Sack of Shite", stuff he grabbed on the way out of the house. Oddly, one winner chose the "sack" over a prize of 4 tickets for a comedy night at the Stand.
Jo Caulfield performed a standup set for the final part of the evening. The audience were treated to some of her more experimental material plus some that seems to have hatched and evolved since I saw her at The Stand a few days ago. Jo is typically critical of life's little irritations and the ridiculous adverts we are subjected to on TV. Jo is a real comedy pro and it was great to have her at the "Quig" (quiz/gig ©Seymour Mace) .

For an evening shortly after New Year;s Eve, this was a well-attended evening and looks in danger of selling out on the next evening. Coming next, on 2nd February are host Alfie Joey and guest stand-up Lost Voice Guy.
