The audience can expect a evening of comedy chaos that is totally unplanned and unscripted when the pair take to the stage - and the duo are also promising a fair bit of Hebburn and Jarrow rivalry.

Jason Cook said: “I can’t wait for people to see who we’ve booked for the South Tyneside Comedy Festival 2019.

“Every year has gotten better and better, with bigger and bigger names coming to see what a perfect venue we have in The Customs House.

“It’s now become part of the comedy calendar and I’m getting inundated with requests to join us, although I only pick the very best - we don’t just let anyone do our gig!”

Previously Jason has done shows with South Shields comedians Chris Ramsey and Sarah Millican as well as last year’s South Tyneside Comedy Festival headliner, Johnny Vegas.

Jason’s stand-up career started in 2005 and since then has racked up a number of television credits including Hebburn and Murder on the Blackpool Express.

He is a Fellow of The Customs House Academy and brings Jason Cook’s Comedy Club to The Customs House every month.

Jason Cook and Carl Hutchinson’s show is the first South Tyneside Comedy Festival 2019 show to go in sale with the programme still taking shape.

The festival will run throughout July and August 2019.
