I've Got a Job For You, Gav
Gateshead Baltic Square
Monday 31st July 2017
Popular Geordie comedian, Gavin Webster, has announced a second screening of his comedy pilot following a successful preview at The Stand Comedy Club last week.
'I've Got a Job For You, Gav', which has been written by Gavin and stars an array of familiar faces from the North East comedy and theatre scene, will enjoy a screening as part of the region's Jesterval comedy festival on Monday 31st July.
The show, which sees Gavin take on the role of salt of the earth taxi driver, Gav, has been in the making since March 2016, and was filmed in and around Tyne and Wear.
In addition to the man himself, the cast is made up of well-known North East comedians and actors including Simon Donald (co-founder of Viz), Judi Earl (Key Change, Open Clasp), Alfie Joey (BBC Newcastle, BBC2's Hebburn), Sammy Dobson (I, Daniel Blake), Cal Halbert (who has performed at the London Palladium as well as on Britain's Got Talent with comedy partner Alfie), Dave Greener, Matt Reed, Suzanne Richardson and Brogan Gilbert.
This isn't the first time Gavin has appeared on screen, having enjoyed success alongside Sammy Dobson in Ken Loach's award-winning I, Daniel Blake last year. Gavin also lent his voice to animated BBC comedy, Walk on the Wild Side along with Sarah Millican and Jason Manford.
Della Haq, event manager, Jesterval, said: “We are thrilled that Gavin has chosen to bring his sitcom pilot to Jesterval this year. Gav is one of our all time favourites and has performed at Jesterval since we begun, so it just seems fitting. We can’t wait to see it!"
