Tony Jameson & Silky

Voodoo Cafe


Doors 7:30pm, Show 8pm


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


Tony Jameson

Tony Jameson - Football Manager Ruined My Life

Tony Jameson feels he’s now at the mid-point of his life. He believes he’s achieved some good things in his life, but there’s still the nagging voice in the back of his head that wonders, 'Could he have achieved more had he not spent the last 20 years playing video games?'

Join one of the north-east’s hottest talents in his debut hour for silly stories and references to players you may / may not remember.

NB It’s not all about Football Manager don’t worry.


“ Cannot help but watch in awe...” - Comedy Central

“Wonderful hour... terrific... this show may have kicked off a fine career” - The Skinny

“The latest Geordie with massive potential” - Yorkshire Evening Post



Silky: It Was This Show Or Have Kids

For his second solo show Silky sweetly sings and softly swears: A live album of actual proper hummable songs with talking between them.

Laughing in the correct places avoids awkwardness all round.
