The Very Best In Stand Up
@ Nantwich Civic Hall, Nantwich
This event has been and gone!
Catch the next one:
The Very Best In Stand Up: Jason Cook, Andy Askins, Markus Birdman, John Robins
The Very Best In Stand Up holds the last show of the year. Join star and creator of BBC show "Hebburn" Jason Cook along with Andy Askins and Markus Birdman in a Christmas show, hosted by MC John Robins.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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).

Dark, dark humour and killer timing.
'An awful lot of charm. Although he looks mild-mannered and studious, he actually packs a wry, cheeky wit. There is, most definitely, something warmly alluring about him. His winning persona goes a long way...between the songs, the charming banter works well' (Chortle).
Andy Askins tour dates
Markus is an original and highly talented stand up. He took his solo show, one step beyond to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2004 and has featured on BBC Radio's spanking new and is the voice of ITV's blank screen.
'The crowd fell for his dry, witty, confused little boy mutt-schtick in a big way' (The Observer)
'Delightfully comic. Controversial, personal and wickedly punchy' (The List)
'Birdman cuts a dashing figure, elegant, smart, theatrical. A hugely entertaining hour of thoughtful, heartfelt, mature comedy, performed with great energy and dynamism... Engagingly mixes the silly and the downright wrong' (Chortle)
'... already on his way up...' (Time Out)
'Second to none' (Adelaide Advertiser)
'Infectious, likeable and popular... A consummate comic... energetic, engaging, thought-provoking and funny' (The Stage).

Winner: Best Debut Show – 2009 Leicester Comedy Festival.
John has quickly made his name as one of the most quick-witted, engaging comedians on the circuit. He's the latest to burst out of Bristol's hotbed of talent and he has stories to tell, banter to have and bombs to drop.
'Funnier than all of them, his self-deprecation and Olympic ad-libbing would have you skipping happily down even the darkest alley' (Venue)
'One man, one microphone, one fantastically funny show' (Three Weeks)
'Like discovering buried treasure' (Fest)
'Comedy's best kept secret' (The Skinny)
'A complete and utter natural' (Russell Howard)
'... fantastically entertaining' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'Sparkling stand-up' (The Times)
'One of the most consistently pleasing hours on the fringe' (The Independent)
'One of the most naturally gifted comedians I've seen' (The Daily Telegraph).
