There’s two chances to catch a line-up of talented comedians from near and far at South Shields’ Customs House this month, as Jason Cook’s comedy club takes over the venue on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd February.

Fronted by the comedian, writer and actor, this month the highly successful club celebrate over 10,000 tickets sold since its inception in October 2015. The tried and tested formula of high quality talent, a great venue and reasonably priced tickets has obviously won them fans, with sell out shows every month and the likes of Britain’s Got Talent winner Lost Voice Guy, Mock the Week regular Gary Delaney and Joke of the Fringe 2018 winner Adam Rowe gracing the stage in the past.

The gigs this month are likely to be no exception and, as always, the bar is set high in the comedy stakes. Heading up the shenanigans will be Canadian comic Phil Nichol, whose skilful improvisation, musical chops and mischievous rantings culminate in his new show, Your Wrong, which will have you questioning the very essence of what you know. Truly a show that will make you think as well as laugh, Nichol’s a consummate performer and an extremely worthy headliner. BBC New Comedy Award winner Angela Barnes also performs, garnering major plaudits for her down-to-earth style and self-deprecating humour, her show Rose Tinted looks on the bright side of life; while Glen Roughead joins forces with comic cohort and club host Jason Cook for a musical act like no other, with songs and stupidity aplenty.
