This week we have a special feature on new comedy sketch show Faces for Radio, including a chat with its writer Nicola Kinnaird and one of the actors who lends their voice to it, Kate Monnelly.
And these sketchy women aren’t the only ones at the drawing board this week. We also speak to Peter Dixon from Funny Way to Be Comedy - ahead of John Bishop’s 3-night run of warm-up gigs at Barnard Castle.
And find out how social media responded when we asked: what are your favourite scripted comedies? Plus our #GiggleGuide is packed full of comedy events right here in the North East.
N.E. Thing Funny brings you news, reviews and interviews from the North East of England's comedy scene! Broadcast live every Monday on Spark, powered by the University of Sunderland. Produced by Peff Soulsby and Kate Murphy. Original music composed and produced by Esmé Newman, Audio Witch.
