Jarred is one of the most innovative and exciting stand-ups on the UK circuit and is a sought-after headliner famed for his quick-witted spontaneity, masterful skills of improvisation and energetic storytelling.
A dynamic onstage persona combined with the ability to improvise with anything that’s thrown his way makes Jarred’s comedy sizzle with originality. Early in his career he supported both Ross Noble and Tommy Tiernan on UK tours. He has since written and performed in countless shows at the Edinburgh Festival and has toured the UK in his own right with his solo shows Jarred Christmas Stands Up and Let’s Go Mofo.
