Off The Rails Comedy Club: Jason Cook, Jim Tavare, Matthew Highton, Justin Moorhouse
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).

Jim Tavaré is a BAFTA award winning British comedian. He played Tom the Innkeeper in Harry Potter 3. In the US he made TV history by becoming the first overseas act to reach the finale of NBC''s Last Comic Standing.
He won a BAFTA for the ITV series 'The Sketch Show', wrote and starred in his own TV shows 'The Jim Tavare Show' (co-written with Ricky Gervais) and 'Jim Tavare Pictures Presents'.
TV credits include NBC's Chuck, Showtime's Californication, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Tosh.0..
Jim was involved in a near-fatal head-on car crash in Los Angeles in March 2017. He sustained horri?c injuries - a broken neck, both clavicles, sternum, 15 ribs, 2 collapsed lungs, over 20 fractures in his leg, a shattered ankle and heel, and a hand that detached from his wrist. Jim spent 3 weeks in intensive care in the USA battling for his life.
As Jim’s US medical costs began to rise and with months still ahead of physical therapy and care, Jim’s friends within both the UK and US comedy circuits stepped in to help by putting on benefit shows.
