Jesterval 2013: Geordie Gala Show: Bobby Pattinson, Jason Cook, Seymour Mace, Steffen Peddie
The cream of UK comedy will rock the North East with laughter as the star-studded Jesterval Comedy Festival returns.
The five day laughter jamboree sees legends like Terry Alderton, Seymour Mace and Phil Nichol take to the stage to perform their latest solo shows.
The comedy festival has previously been held at venues across the city but this year organisers are taking over Baltic Square at Gateshead Quays.
Please see www.jesterval.co.uk/ for further information.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Traditional Geordie humour from the Godfather of Northern comedy.
Bobby Pattinson tour dates
Be ready for pretty much anything when Jason Cook takes to the stage. Behind his cheerful Geordie exterior lurks a dark, sharp comedic mind capable of taking an unsuspecting audience to places they didn't want to go. Dwarves, newspaper vendors, the toilets at raves, true-to-life stories that drag you in and won't let go. Cook is close to the edge but always intriguing and blessed with the sort of charm that'll have you laughing in spite of yourself.
'A wonderfully life-affirming, beautifully crafted, total and utter joy. My jaw aches from laughing' (Time Out)
'Few people have his warmth and spontaneity; it's an act you'd gladly watch again and again' (The Skinny).
Jason Cook tour dates
Despite looking like a slightly dishevelled and demented geography lecturer, he is a brilliant comedian. He crackles with childish energy, getting caught in flights of fancy and going off on strange tangents, but never loses sight of the gag. A performer worth the admission price alone.
He was a regular in BBC2's Johnny Vegas sitcom 'Ideal', a former City Life Comedian of the Year and Breakthrough Act at the North West Comedy Awards. Like a truly bizarre hybrid of Harry Hill, Half Man Half Biscuit and Viz comic, Seymour is a teller of extremely tall tales and High Priest of the terrifically twisted one-liner. He was also victorious in the Cup A Soup Comedy Challenge. You may mock such a curiously named title but the prize money was 10 grand.
'Leaves his crowd uplifted, entertained and laden with charity shop-bought gifts...Warm, original and weird' (Edinburgh Festival Guide)
'Breathtaking... a surreal performance, he had the audience in the palm of his hand from start to finish' (Evening Chronicle).
Seymour Mace tour dates
An up and coming comedian.
“He holds the audience's attention throughout and leaves the stage with me wanting more” - BBC
“A fresh emerging Geordie talent” - Metro
“Johnny Vegas may still hold the fat gags crown, but Peddie would make a worthy understudy” - The Journal
