Greg Cook former bouncer, binman, trained lawyer and now awesome comedian is a real treat and always rips it up with gag after gag hitting the mark. Although he has a slightly scary appearance he’s a big softy and his delightfully deadpan comedy will have you falling off their chair with laughter. This led John Plowman, head of BBC Comedy to describe him as ‘Les Dawson for the 21st century’.
A prolific writer of comedy, he has several hours of tested material to draw on, but reserves the right to dish up a blistering set drawn from this morning’s newspapers. Religion, politics, sport, terrorism, poetry, the police, philosophy, royalty and his long-suffering mum have all been given the Greg Cook treatment, since he began performing in May 2002.
He abandoned a law degree after 2 years to devote more time to writing and performing comedy. ‘Law and comedy are essentially the same gig,’ says Greg, ‘telling lies for money. But this way I don’t have to wear a tie.’
Relentless gags, brilliant delivery. All in a top comedian not to be missed.
