Festival director Jason Cook said: “If you haven’t seen these shows before, they are electric.

“No plan, no scripts – just two of the North East’s finest comics mucking around, riffing with the audience and, as this is a special show, celebrating both of their birthdays.

“Every single one of these shows has sold out very quickly, so make sure to get your tickets and book now. Presents not compulsory (but bring presents).”

Jason is taking to the stage four times during the South Tyneside Comedy Festival, which kicks off on Friday, July 12, with rising star and winner of Joke of the Fringe at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Adam Rowe.

Jason appears alongside Carl Hutchinson on Saturday, July 13, in Cook and Hutchinson Have Literally No Plans Whatsoever, which has sold out.

His first solo shows in years, Pictures of My Family, takes place on Saturday, July 27, which follows his appearance on the same day with Glen Roughead in Roughead and Cook, where the pair sing songs about everything from mortgages to Metros.
