Gavin's wikipedia entry!:
“Gavin Webster (born 13 November 1969 in Blaydon-on-Tyne) is an English stand-up comedian.
He made his debut in 1993 at the Barley Mow pub in Gateshead, on the same bill as Ross Noble.
His television work includes Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The Stand-up Show, Does Doug Know, Take The Mike, The Regionnaires, The Eleven O Clock show, The Comedy Store, Comedy Blue and The World Stand Up Tour (Channel 9 Australia, Comedy Central USA). He wrote and played in Walk on the Wild Side in 2009 and 2010. In 2011 he voiced Sid the Sexist for Channel 4’s series Blaps adapting Viz. His 2011 Edinburgh Fringe show, All Young People are Cunts was positively reviewed by the British Comedy Guide. He previously played Edinburgh in 2003, 2008 and 2009. He had a residency at The Stand Comedy Club in Newcastle every Sunday called ‘Gavin Webster’s Northumbrian Assembly’.

In 2012 he returned to the Edinburgh Fringe with a new stand-up show, Bill Hicks Wasn’t Very Good. His 2014 Edinburgh show was called “Controversial Title in Order to Sell Tickets” whilst his 2016 show was entitled “Jesus Christ Is A Window Cleaner Now”.
