As seen on The Russell Howard Hour and in Catastrophe, Cuckoo and Netflix’s Turn Up Charlie. Writer for Mock the Week. ‘The finest of British comedy… effortlessly endearing’ ***** (EdFestMag.com). **** (Sunday Times). **** (List). **** (Skinny).

Absolutely hilarious. Had me and the rest of the audience in stitches. Would highly recommend! He's going to be big, I bet. Everybody was howling with laughter.

I spent the evening after work going to "pay what you want" shows, and this was the best of the bunch! Jack is full of energy and is just an all round nice guy, well worth checking him out. I think the word has spread already as the show was fully packed - get there early to make sure you get a seat!

Jack is a great comedian who may look like the baby in the sun from Teletubbies on the stage (well a hairier and more beard adorned baby) but his comedy is certainly not for little ones. As an audience we were seated so comfortably in the cinema room and were taken on a ride through Jack’s experiences with both being a foreigner in a foreign country and then getting into a relationship with a foreigner in a different country. No it’s not one of those shows about Brexit don’t panic. This is more personal, hilarious and very eye opening. Definitely one to go early for as the room is small and there were people turned away when I was there. So rush there to ensure you get a seat...oh and like a great Marvel movie...there is a brilliant payoff at the end! 10/10!

Edinburgh Festivals Magazine (4/5 stars) 28 days ago

Jack Barry knows how to make an entrance. Bouncing down the stairs towards a massive projection of his gurning face, dressed head to toe in yellow, there's an instant sense that you're in for a good time, and...
