Never miss another 'Dave Johns' show
The Comedy Sessions: Dave Johns, Chris Brooker, Special Guest Comedian
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Highly-acclaimed Geordie stand-up comedian with numerous TV and radio credits to his name. An expert in the delivery of in-yer-face comedy, Dave's high-energy routine has left audiences around the globe gasping for breath and crying with laughter.
In 1989 Johns’ launched the Comedy Café on Westgate Road and invited the emerging Jack Dee and Jo Brand to appear, but realising they needed an MC stepped-up and did it himself. Finding he was rather good at it and pricing tickets at £3.75 including soup and a bun, the club became a city hot spot and Dave went on to host many more comedy stars including Eddie Izzard, Steve Coogan, Harry Hill and nervous 14 year old lad called Ross Noble who went on to do rather well for himself.
Johns became a successful comedian, touring throughout the UK, a regular with the Comedy Store Players and appearing on much loved TV shows like Never Mind the Buzzcocks and 8 Out of Ten Cats.
'He performs comedy's greatest magic, simply by being himself. A genuinely funny, engaging performer' (Glasgow Herald)
'He shifts from the sublime, to genius, to uproar in the blink of an eye - an extremely entertaining hour' (The Guardian).
