Jacob Hawley is one of the boldest new voices on the circuit, and is beginning to build a following after reaching the finals of the BBC New Comedy Award 2017. He has a self-aware, conversational style and delivers a hilariously introspective social commentary based on his small town suburban upbringing. He regularly performs at some of the biggest and best clubs in the country and has won King Gong at London’s Comedy Store. At the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Jacob performed a 40 minute work in progress show, Fruit Machine, to packed rooms and great acclaim, with one joke from the show being listed in the BBC’s Top Ten Gag’s from Edinburgh, and his eagerly awaited debut hour will premier at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018.
‘A mature, sharp wit, a relaxed manner and an undertow of political passion… Clever, and different.’ Bruce Dessau
‘Mocks blind patriotism in an enjoyably offbeat way. Nicely Wry’ Steve Bennett, Chortle
