Comedy Night with John Scott

Northumbria Students' Union


NSU and Northumbria Careers and Employment present a Comedy Night with John Scott. 

Price: Pay what you feel!
All money raised will go to Tyneside Mind

John has performed multiple times at the Edinburgh Fringe and has done warm up shows for established acts such as Frankie Boyle, Ross Noble as well as supporting Tom Stade on tour and he’s here at NSU performing his new show, Delusions. The show is a biographical and looks at his history of mental health. At 24 he was misdiagnosed with schizophrenia and spent periods in mental health hospitals. John is now correctly diagnosed as Bi-Polar 1 and has been a service user for over 20 years. The show will aim to destigmatise and raise awareness of issues around mental health. 

The performance will then be followed by a panel to discuss Mental Health and Employment.
