What are you scared of? Heights? Wasps? The prospect of dying alone and unloved? Mmm; might not be an obvious comedy mine, this, but Jason Cook has built an entire show around the idea that by addressing his own fears, he can show us we're all in this mess together. Or, he says:
"Failing that I'll just end up looking like a freak for an hour as people stare at me, trying to explain why I am the way I am."
Either way, it's an interesting proposition from the affable Geordie. Cook's already had two successful Edinburgh shows (Confessions and Joy), and Fear picked up 5 star reviews over the summer. Now it's our turn to see what the unflinchingly honest comedian has in store (tales of international piracy, Middle Eastern jails and alcoholism are some of the rumoured treats). Face your darkest terrors in Bloomsbury on Saturday night; you'll be in good company.
Jason Cook plays the Bloomsbury Theatre, 15 Gordon Street WC1, on Saturday 3 October 7.30pm, tickets £14 / £12. For more information, visit the Bloomsbury Theatre website.
