London based John Kearns is a former guide at the Houses of Parliament. He won the 2014 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award, a year after being named best newcomer – the first act to achieve that in two consecutive years. He was also nominated for the Barry Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 2014 and 2015; as well as for the breakthrough award and best sketch, character or improv act in the 2014 Chortle Awards. This is a rare chance to see one of the very brightest stars in UK comedy play in the North East.
John Kearns – Don’t Worry They’re Here
The only winner of the Best Show and Best Newcomer Edinburgh Comedy Awards returns for the first time. As seen/heard on Top Coppers, Cats Does Countdown, Drunk History and BBC Radio 4.
Lauren Pattison is of the brightest young talents on the comedy scene, with a fresh and fierce female voice. In 2016 Lauren also reached the final of the BBC New Comedy Awards which was performed live on BBC Radio 4. Lauren arrives with her hotly anticipated debut hour. After stellar performances at both Leeds and Latitude Festivals and supporting Katherine Ryan on tour, this baby-faced comic has proved herself a force to be reckoned with.
