The 2018 comedy season in Barnard Castle continues this month with a brand new show format led by Jason Cook. The show, entitled ‘Roughead and Cook’ will take place at The Witham in Barnard Castle on Friday the 23rd February at 8.00pm – and it’s going to be a musical double act like no other.
Jason Cook, the award-winning comedian and writer who has scored massive TV hits with ‘Hebburn’ and ‘Murder on The Blackpool Express’, joins forces with Newcastle’s swing singer Glen Roughead to present an evening of laughs, songs and stupidity!
Some folks might call this a variety show but, well, it’s unlike any variety show you’ve seen before. Jason is joined by his ‘Geordie Rat Pack’ collaborator Glen Roughead who accompanies him on guitar, vocals and general banter. This brand-new show is a must for stand-up comedy, music and variety fans alike.
Jason Cook recently said: “Glen and I have been doing a couple of songs at my own comedy club gig, so it made sense to do our own show. We can’t wait. We’ve written some great new stuff and it’s going to be a full-on night.”
Peter Dixon from Funny Way To Be Comedy said, “Jason is currently developing a new show with his friend Glen Roughead, which mixes music and comedy.
“Jason Cook is one of the UK’s best comedy performers. He is a prolific writer and has an irresistible charm. He loves coming to Teesdale, and never fails to produce a great show. His new venture with Glen Roughead sounds like another brilliantly creative partnership. A perfect balance of music and comedy! We are thrilled to be bringing the pair to Barnard Castle It’s going to be a full show of lunacy from two Geordie legends with their luscious, loveable, laugh out loud lullabies.”
Tickets, priced at £10.00 in advance, are available from the funnywaytobe.com and the Witham Box Office. If they are still available, tickets on the door will be £12.00. The audience is restricted to 16+.
