"Something to offend everyone."
"It’s a failing of the comedy industry that there aren’t more voices like Jamali Maddix on the circuit."
"If you are easily offended stay away. If you think you’re not, prepare to be challenged."
Jamali Maddix is one of most promising and exciting acts to hit the circuit in years.
With an assured stage presence and considered material that comes from a fresh perspective, he already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond his years.
His natural confidence and charm allow him to tread gracefully across more sensitive topics leaving many of his contemporaries behind.
In his first two years of performing Jamali won the Comedy Café New Act of the Year Competition and the Chortle Student Comedy Award – all while making it look effortless.
In June 2015 he supported Jim Jefferies before a 3,500 strong Hyde Park audience. His debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe was a total sell out and received rave reviews.
He has appeared on The John Bishop Show, Live at the Apollo, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, Dara O’Briain’s Go 8-Bit and 8 out of 10 Cats. Jamali also became one of the faces for the new Viceland TV channel with his own series Hate Thy Neighbor.
Big things await this natural talent.
