Loveable Geordie Barry, charms audiences with his unique brand of disarming wit and wry, down-to-earth observational humour.

Self-confessed comedy geek, Barry took to the comedy stage at the tender age of 21 and soon had audiences eating out of the palm of his hand. Using his own combination of irrepressibly cheeky, and surprisingly dark, material, he quickly found himself taking the national comedy circuit by storm.

Barry is also a Patreon Creator, comedian, gamer, ghost hunter, minister, Erasure super fan, occasional boxer, a presenter of The Parapod and the co-star in The ParaPod Movie, along with ParaPod co-presenter Ian Boldsworth.

He was a finalist in Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy Search, got through to the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedy Award and won both the Best Online Comedy at the Midlands Comedy Awards and the Phones 4U Comedy Award.

He picked up the Best MC Trophy for the fourth year in a row at the Midlands Comedy Awards 2018 and has been tour support for Jason Manford, Stewart Francis, Jim Jefferies, Tape Face and Pete Firman.
