Hailing from the Midlands, Jay Handley made furniture until he found out comedy was a viable profession. Since then he has made entirely no furniture but he has made audiences up and down the country laugh a lot. His comedy adventure has seen him perform at many legendary venues and he has become a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

He covers a range of topics incorporating observational, anecdotal and confessional styles.

His successful solo shows include Free Comic, Free Comic Vol 2, You Want the Truth? You Can’t Handley the Truth, Hansplaining and his most recent show White Jesus.

He has twice been a finalist in the Birmingham New Act of the Year Awards as well as appearing in the semi-finals of the LOADED Laftas and the final of the Levity Festival Act of the Year.
