Jesterval, The North East's Premier Comedy Festival, returns for 2014! For the second year running Jesterval will be staged at one of the most iconic locations in the North East: Baltic Square at Gateshead Quays.
This year's Festival features some of the finest comedians working in the UK today including Jason Manford, Tony Law, Marcus Brigstocke, Sara Pascoe, Paul Zerdin, Simon Munnery, Terry Alderton, Luisa Omielan, Imran Yusuf, Gavin Webster, Zoe Lyons and Jason Cook. From household names to hotly-tipped acts alongside the best local talent, don't miss this opportunity to see the acts up close and personal at a very affordable price.
There are over 30 quality shows capturing the diverse, cultural and spiritual zeitgeist of the day, and, because of that, Jesterval can guarantee there will be an act for everyone – even those with the most delicate of constitutions.
Look out for the special Children in Need, BBC Newcastle v The Comedians Comedy Quiz Night on the final night. It’s guaranteed to be a laugh and will be recorded ready for broadcast on the radio in November this year.
