The Comics

Compare – Nicola Mantalios

After being a regular at local live gigs Nicola started getting free tickets because of her gloriously loud laugh. After trying her hand at stand up herself in 2010 she never looked back.

Nicola was a finalist in the Laughing Horse and the So You Think You’re funny? competitions in 2011 and went on to perform her debut hour “Little Miss Adventure” at the Newcastle Comedy festival in 2014. She was also part of the comedy sketch group “Funny Team” during 2014. In 2016 Nicola performed her show “Cult Following” at The Edinburgh Fringe festival, a show about leaving religion, sexuality and identity.

In August 2013 Nicola’s character act “Zoe” was born. Zoe is a dog obsessed oddball who commands an audience with her chaotic, hilarious yet endearing presence.

Performing as both Zoe and herself Nicola has some 12 years experience performing stand up, Mcing, performing at clubs, festivals, family shows and corporate shows around the UK.

Opener – Si Beckwith

Si Beckwith is a stand-up comedian and writer from Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Si gigs regularly and prolifically, up and down the country, making sure to hone his craft on all manner of stages and is a respected, reliable and most importantly very funny stand-up comedian who has a creative approach to all he does.

Middle – Kelly Rickard

Felt Nowt New Act of the Year Winner Kelly Rickard has discovered two new talents of late:

1) She can rest her boobs on her belly – TA DA! – and 2) If she stands up and tells the truth about her life, people laugh. Kelly isn’t sure whether either of these is a good thing, but as one of life’s people pleasers, she will continue to perform both of these tricks until people tire of them. Described as ‘Brutally honest and hilarious.’ by Rosie Ramsey, Kelly Rickard is not to be missed when she takes to the Borne Studios stage this April!

Closer – Mike Milligan

Mike is an established act, with many years experience on the national and international comedy circuit; including the Comedy Store and Jongleurs’ clubs as a regular compere and headliner. He also works overseas entertaining the armed services for the highly regarded C.S.E. organisation.

Mike is also a resident compere at Newcastle’s Hyena Comedy Cafe, which was acclaimed as ‘One of the top ten comedy clubs in the country’. (Daily Telegraph).

With Mike closing out the show you’re garunteed to go home laughing with a huge smile on your face!

Food/drinks

The Pedalling Squares Café will offer a bar service from 17:30 until the end of the interval at approx 20:10.

The Dough Box will be service hand made pizzas from17:30. The food service will stop at 18:45.

Parking/getting there

There is a bus stop just 3 minutes’ walk away on Swalwell Bank with numerous regional buses passing by. The studio is also approx. £6 taxi from the Metrocentre, £11 from Central Station Newcastle or Gateshead Metro Station.

For those driving, please note there is limited parking outside the venue so we ask you to avoid this area and park at either the top of the bank on the surrounding streets or the bottom of the bank in the Swalwell Bank Car Park behind Maguires Fish & Chips and Jashn Restaurant (free).

If parked at the bottom of the bank, come up the bank along the road (as the other route is not suitable for pedestrians at this time) and turn left, you will see the studio and café lights on your left – this walk will take you no longer than 5 minutes and is better than the off road route down the other side.

Please note there is no step free access in the Studio at this time, the studio can only be accessed via a short amount of steps on a thin staircase from the Café. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

There will be a raffle in aid of north east homelessness charity Oasis Community Housing on the night where you can donate £2 for your chance to win 2 tickets to the next comedy night or Borne Studios event of your choosing.

We thank you in advance for supporting a North East growing business and while we encourage you to take pictures and share them on social media tagging @media_borne & @borne_studiosplease note the show is being recorded so there is no need to be on your phones while the comics take to the stage.

If you sit in the front 2 row’s and need to leave before the break, please walk behind the sofa to the toilet so you do not walk in front of the cameras.

If you have any issues being filmed, please email the team at [email protected].
