A sold-out crowd at the Customs House said farewell to 2015 with a laugh.

Hebburn funnyman Jason Cook rounded up a host of his comedy pals to ensure everyone saw the year off with a bang.

The night was kicked off by Alice in Wonderland panto star Stephen Sullivan who took on his guise of the Mad March Hare to get the crowd going.

He was joined on stage by a pair of bagpipers to lead the crowd in an Auld Lang Syne sing-along and everyone was quickly in high spirits.

Jason really raised the roof as he chatted with the crowd and shared tales of his family life.

The comic is fresh every time you see him on stage. His natural charm seeps out into the audience as everyone listens intently to his hilarious tales.

Super rude comic Mickey Hutton split the audience. His smutty routine probably went down better with the blokes in the crowd, while the girls were more likely to find it vulgar.

Jarrow comic Carl Hutchinson got big laughs and nods of recognition with his angry accounts of a waiter messing up his order and his girlfriend trying to throw away his old boxers.

A News From The North sketch got lots of chuckles and Steffen Peddie’s appearance on stage in a onesie, bib and bonnet to read the News For Babies had everyone in stitches.

Steffen came back to end the night by sharing funny stories from his life, from putting his foot in his mouth to accidentally stopping by a dogging spot to eat his tea.

The night made for incredible entertainment and was a brilliant way to see in the new year.
