Hilarious comedy at The Met on the First Thursday of every month. Featuring Dave Johns, Chris Washington, Jon Pearson and MC Ben van der Velde.

Newcastle’s Dave Johns started out as a brickie, became a stand up in the late Eighties with an enviable reputation amongst peers and punters. He then decided to throw it all away and become a film star. Although best known for his appearances in the Fishermen’s Friends films and playing the title role in I, Daniel Blake we can assure you it’s on a comedy stage where Dave really comes into his own. Unmissable.

★★★★★ Entertainment Now ★★★★★ Daily Business “Hilarity to uproar to genius” The Guardian

Chris Washington made his Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2017 with his self-produced show, Dream Big (Within Reason) after taking all his annual leave in his full-time job as a postman. The gamble paid off with Chris receiving a nomination for Best Newcomer despite having no management, promoter or PR. A feel-good underdog story which he describes as ‘getting five numbers and the bonus ball on the comedy lottery’. Jokes are now the only things Chris has to deliver and his sack is positively bulging with them. Telly appearances include Live from the BBC, Mock the Week and Richard Osman’s House of Games.
