Well, well, well my little fruity sausages!

We have a right ol' April treat coming over the horizon...

Headliner -

Danny Pensive - (performed by John Cooper)
An original blend of sharp wit and inventively inspired stories.
Pushing the envelope of eclectic humour with his passion for creating truly alternative comedy.

In 2011 He went to The Edinburgh Fringe Festival with “Danny Pensive’s Map of Britain”, a show all about people and places which garnered critical success from the press, and a cult following for the character.

As both a straight stand up and a character comedian, John has firmly established himself as one of the most original voices to come out of the North East in recent years.

John has appeared on BBC radio Manchester, and writes a blog for Sci-Fi & Fantasy magazine SFX.
