Mark Maier Presents “Objects”
Most people talk to objects; the car that’s run out of petrol; the relentlessly dripping tap. In Mark’s life, these and many more objects talk back. Returning to his native North East, join Mark’s hilarious autobiographical journey where animated inanimate objects finally get their say.

Sarah Millican Presents “Not Nice”
Following on from her success at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Sarah returns to Live with her sell-out show, Not Nice.

Sarah will also be showcasing her latest comedy material, so make sure you’re one of the first to hear her newest installment.
