In the words of Leicester Comedy Festival, after winning the prestigious 2018 Leicester Mercury Comedian of The Year award, "Jack bowled over the judges with his quirky set; a delightful blend of audience participation, wordplay and physical comedy".
Jack is in huge demand on the live comedy scene. As well as performing across the top UK comedy club such, Jack performed at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe where he performed every day as part of the Pleasance Comedy Reserve. He has also been on the road as tour support for Lloyd Griffith, and featured at Latitude festival’s main comedy arena - to a mere 3,500 people!
