This event will feature two full length shows, previewed at the Darlington Comedy Festival before they debut at the Edinburgh Festival.


Carl Hutchinson

Carl Hutchinson - All The Rage

Off-stage Carl is a polite, well mannered guy who keeps himself to himself. On-stage, Carl is unafraid. Quite often he just can't help himself when reacting to annoying people or difficult situations.

Last year, he decided he wanted to see what life would be like living like his on-stage persona. This newly liberated Carl let loose and found himself getting into a variety of confrontations. He found that he really enjoyed himself.

One year later, which Carl remains? Was it a fully-fledged transformation or a one-off experiment?


“Phenomenal stand-up” - ★★★★★ - Three Weeks

“An absolute must... blew the roof off... the next big thing” - ★★★★ - The Skinny

“Carl Hutchinson has it all” - ★★★★ - Broadway Baby


Jason Cook

Jason Cook - I Will Make Your Life Better

Jason Cook, award winning stand up and writer of the even MORE award winning BBC2 hit sitcom 'Hebburn" returns to Darlington with a show about how to improve your life.

If you've seen Jason before, you'll know what to expect, banter, stories and big, big laughs.


“Jason Cook’s latest show is a wonderfully life-affirming, beautifully crafted, total and utter joy. My jaw aches from laughing” - ★★★★★ - TimeOut

“Few people have his warmth and spontaneity; it’s an act you’d gladly watch again and again” - The Skinny

“...conclusively proves he can produce an hour of joyously uplifting and playfully honest hilarity simply from being a damn fine comedian, no emotional manipulation required. Jason Cook has more funny in his middle toe than most comics do in their whole body... Fear not, Cook has produced the goods yet again” - Chortle
