Bio
Yorkshire lad doing quick fire gags and gigging since 2016. Regularly middling on pro bills and increasingly doing weekend work.
For example in the last couple of months I've opened on Saturdays for ROFL's Derby, Newcastle-under-Lyme and Sheffield venues - and middled for Shoecake in Leeds, for Rob Riley's Off the Rails club in Saddleworth - the middle act between Daliso Chaponda and Rob Rouse.


Opened and done mid week closing slots at pub venues.

As seen in the Daily Telegraph’s 25 Funny Jokes For Lockdown and more than 3 Million views on Facebook Reels.

I drive. Based in Wirral, Merseyside.
