Punchline Recommends: Jason Cook ‘Broken’

Jason Cook may be ‘Broken’, but he’s written a really good show on the back of it. The things that have broken Jason the most are his family and his job. If this sounds like the depressing reality of your own life, then I recommend you spend an hour with Jason at the Fringe and watch him turn all unfortunate situations into hilarious anecdotes.

Whilst working on his sitcom ‘Hebburn’, Jason became seriously ill – only this brilliant writer and comedian could have an audience literally roaring with laughter as his stories of sickness unravel. Jason Cook turns unavoidable misery into a heart-warming show, whilst still remaining cheeky and incredibly funny throughout.

Jason Cook performs at the Pleasance Dome at 5.40 throughout the Fringe and I strongly recommend booking your seat early.
