What people are saying about Jesterval
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ianmac from Jesterval 2015 Gateshead Quayside. Visited several shows over the festival. A great atmosphere and glorious weather. Not to forget some outstanding comedy from local as well as national artists. Well worth the visit and fee when required. Will certainly visit again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GemDog from Cold and Hard! Could not fault Chris Ramsey & Jason Cook. They bounced off each other and the audience effortlessly. He comedy was current, relavant and refreshingly local. However the venue! I knew it was a tent on the quayside before hand. But the show started late meaning long queues with no management. The seating was very hard, uncomfortable and close together (not great having some drunk bloke fall asleep on you half way through). It was also pretty cold. It wouldn't put me of going again, but I'm pleased I can be prepared next time. Overall pretty good and great value for money!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pmcd26 from Better than Edinburgh This year i managed to see 15 acts without the stress of having to walk miles out of my way to mini venues. Amazing acts such as Lee Kyle spectacularly risking life and limb re-enacting the 1992 Royal rumble by himself;Mat Reed describing a harrowing true story and making an audience breathless with gasps and laughter; The Mimic Men joyously impersonating the great and the nots-so-good; Andrew Maxwell displaying why he is at the top of his game; Nicola Mantalious-Lovett (and her infectious laugh) showing why she is one to watch, and sublime shows from Gavin Webster and Seymour Mace which re-enforced my belief that the North East is fastly becoming a comedy capital. This festival is expertly arranged and deserves to be a annual fixture in the North East. Long may it continue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Giles86 from Mimic Men at Jesterval Brilliant show by the Mimic Men, fast paced, quick witted and hugely entertaining Alfie Joey and Cal Herbert put on an excellent show and there wasn't a moment without laugher, from their A-Z of Celebrity to the EU Referendum song it was a great night out and the movie section was inspired Highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to see them again, a mix of ages in the audience from children to older people, the gig was suitable for all and enjoyed by all

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sazy5 from Total disaster We went expecting to watch the England match, we were left in the rain and then watching the weather forecast on BBC when the match was on ITV! We had to listen to it on our phones before the whole event was abandoned! By which time we had missed s decent slice of the first half.

Rated 5 out of 5 by coasty17 from Tom Binns, makes the rest look rubbish ! Saw Tom Binns on Saturday Afternoon in the Marquee tent in front of the Baltic Art Gallery . A full house thoroughly enjoyed a solid hour or so of great laughs .Toms act consists of portraying 3 different characters ; a spiritualist , a ventriloquist , and a hospital radio DJ , and all are brilliant . The audience lapped it up , and he got a standing ovation from all, so what more can I say ?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sam Elliott from Lauren Pattison: Reet Petite Review With a quirky dress and original jokes, the set she did was amazing. It was a "work in progress" gig, meaning some material was new and untested, but she pulled it off. She compared being single to Netflix, recalled licking a stranger and made the entire tent of 130 people laugh out loud. Brilliant night and a brilliant comedian. Well done Lauren, see you at Byron :p
