5 Actors + 1 Musician + 0 Script = a ton of hot-fast hilarity.

Newcastle's legendary improv comedy team brings you their two-hour improv comedy joyride that will have you rolling in the aisles, and leave you with a belly-ache from laughing. Expect a wild rollercoaster of hysterical theatrics, as the Suggestibles transform audience suggestions into hilarious situations, crazy characters and corking songs - and in the second-half, their piéce de ridiculousness: 'Aspects of...' the improvised musical.

Come armed with ideas, as their favourite suggestion of the night WINS two tickets to another Suggestibles show - they play the Cumberland every month (home to their spontaneous shenanigans for 15 years!)

Off-the-cuff, off-the-wall, and every show a one-off!
