Headline: Jonny Awsum
After completing an eight-year comedy apprenticeship as barman at The Chuckle Club, Jonny Awsum exploded onto the UK comedy scene with a crowd-pleasing set that’s seen him smash hundreds of gigs across the UK.
With his likeable style and trusty guitar, Jonny’s musings include everything from the white lies he tells his girlfriend to his new home town of Croydon and the memory of his first love at eight years old.
In his first two years on the circuit Jonny won the Magners Funhouse Comedy Gongshow, the Comedy Café new acts night and completed a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his hit show ‘Playtime’.
Comfortable with any type of gig, Jonny’s feel-good set has captivated audiences at venues including pub back rooms, 400 seat theatres and the nation’s top comedy venues The Glee Club and Jongleurs.
Jonny was recently cast for EDF Energy’s new TV campaign by Trigger Happy TV director Sam Cadman and is also proud to be the public face of Puntigamer beer in Austria!
