Description

Men will literally do a 55-minute show about identity, social class and drinking olive oil, instead of going to therapy :/ Award-winning wide boy Jacob Hawley considers whether ample mental health is an exclusively middle-class pursuit, if he’s finally graduated from drugs to antipasti and, all considered, if he’s ready to be a father. As seen on Sky’s The Russell Howard Hour and BBC Three’s Ladhood. Creator and star of Radio 4’s Class Act and Welcome To Britain, BBC Sounds’ Jacob Hawley: On Drugs and Jacob Hawley: On Love. 'Must-see staple' (List). 'Voice of a generation' (Chortle.co.uk).

Jacob Hawley’s got chills. They’re multiplying and he’s losing control. The show is all about how he solves his problems, sees the light, and starts believing that we can be who we are. It’s got a groove. It’s got meaning. It’s electrifying!

4* - Saw in 2019 and 2022 didn't disappoint. Funny, authentic, polished and at times poignant, this is proper stand up comedy without irrelevant props or absurdity. Although you can buy socks...
