Be ready for pretty much anything when Jason takes to the stage. Behind his cheerful Geordie exterior lurks a dark, sharp comedic mind. Jason has a way of presenting true-to-life stories that drag you in and won’t let go, close to the edge but always intriguing and blessed with the sort of charm that’ll have you laughing in spite of yourself.
In 2012 Jason’s sitcom “Hebburn” was commissioned by the BBC. Vic Reeves, Gina Mckee, Chris Ramsey and Fresh Meat’s Kimberley Nixon joined the cast in a story based on Jason’s own life and upbringing in the South Tyneside town of Hebburn. Hebburn earned him a Royal Television Society Award, the Journal Culture Award for “Best Writer” and National Television Award nomination.
In 2017 Jason wrote the UKTV Gold "Murder on the Blackpool Express" a star studded mixture of comedy and classic murder mystery set on a guided tour coach trip to Blackpool. The cast list included Griff Rhys Jones, Nigel Havers, Johnny Vegas and Una Stubbs. Later in 2018 a follow programme set on a North East Ferry is to be broadcast.
