“Chaos has rarely been so finely constructed and this much fun” ★★★★ THE TIMES


JACK BERRY

Jack Barry is an exciting name making waves in the comedy world and is probably the only stand up on the circuit with a degree in Chinese – what a waste. As well as gracing screens and crisp packets nationwide as the face of McCoy’s Crisps for most of 2017-2018, Jack has appeared on Channel 4’s Catastrophe, ITV2’s @elevenish as part of sketch duo Twins and in James Acaster’s web series Sweet Home Lahnsteineringa. An excellent writer, he has written for Mock the Week (BBC2) and a sketch he wrote entitled Get Staffed went viral, becoming a Vimeo staff pick and appearing on the Canal+ TV show L’Oeil de Links in France. The sketch was shortlisted for Best Comedy Short at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival and won Single Funniest Moment at the Portland Comedy Festival.

Jack has provided tour support for comedians including Russell Howard, James Acaster, Patrick Kielty and Joe Lycett. An Edinburgh Fringe regular, he first appeared at the Festival with critically-acclaimed student sketch group the Leeds Tealights, named Best Student Sketch Group in 2010. He performed his debut solo hour in 2015 and has since returned each year with critically-acclaimed sell-out shows. His 2017 show High Treason went on to a 3-night run at London’s Soho Theatre. He returned to the festival in 2018 with a sell-out run of his show Tango, which received exclusively 4* and 5* reviews.

Along with being a solo act, Jack writes and performs as one-half of acclaimed sketch duo Twins alongside fellow former Leeds Tealight Annie McGrath.

AMY HOWERSKA
