Edinburgh Fringe: Jason Cook/ Cul de Sac/ Fear of a Brown Planet

Edinburgh Fringe: Jason Cook/ Cul de Sac/ Fear of a Brown Planet

A comic looking for happiness, the dangers of a cul-de-sac, and Muslims on a mission

Jason Cook: the comic has masterly audience skills

Jason Cook has masterly audience skills, and he needed them all the night I saw him. A middle-aged teacher (who really should know better), whose refreshment clearly led her to the delusion that she was the person people had paid to see, kept interrupting. Even the engaging and unfailingly polite Geordie comic's patience was wearing thin, but he constantly bested her and got on with the job of making us laugh.
