Never miss another 'Jason Cook' show
Beat The Gong: Jason Cook, Jonny Awsum
"Just beat it! It's the most brutal comedy night on Teesside.
Let the comedy chaos commence as twelve hot, hilarious, new acts try to beat the dreaded gong and win over the ARC audience! The gong show is a jaw-dropping spectacle that only happens three times a year. It’s crammed with brilliantly off-the-cuff, unpredictable stand-up and audience-led savagery.
All will be just-about-held-together by Gong Master & Catch 22 stalwart Jason Cook.
Please note: Beat the Gong can contain strong content and is strictly for over 18s."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
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).
