Her debut comedy show Just Being Funny achieved sell out runs and critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe 2022. Festival director Beth Mcgowan described her as having a ‘fiercely commanding stage persona, big personality and razor-sharp wit.’


Described by BBC Humberside as having ‘echoes of Norman Wisdom’ and as ‘a latter-day Lee Evans’ by Beyond The Joke, award-winning comedian Jack brings high-energy performances and a cheeky persona to his stand-up routine. He was the winner of the 2018 Leicester Mercury Comedian of The Year and nominated for Chortle’s 2019 Best Newcomer.

In 2022 he was nominated as Best Club Comedian in the Chortle awards.
