Jonny began comedy at University and while he was there he achieved runner-up in both the coveted So You Think You’re Funny competition and The Chortle Student Comedy Awards. Since graduating university Jonny has continued to impress and was a finalist and judges choice in the BBC Radio New Comedy Awards, as well as being nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer in 2014. 2016 saw Jonny make the exciting step over to the small screen on Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central for Comedy Central followed by a support slot on Live At The BBC, with further TV appearances in the works. With several highly critically acclaimed solo shows under his belt Jonny took an utterly brilliant show, Off Limits, to the fringe this year and took it to the Soho Theatre for several dates this October. He’s a sublime stand up comedian.
