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).
