Description

Winner: Best New Comedian, Panic Awards (2019). As seen on BBC, ITV, Sky and Comedy Central. Fusing stand-up with musical comedy, the UK's premier transgender comedian takes on babies, boobies, bigots and Batman. After 10 years in the music biz (and a memorable run on The Voice), Jordan Gray has suddenly become one of the UK's most exciting and celebrated rising comics. 'Jordan Gray might be the next stage of human evolution' (Guardian). 'It's pretty much impossible not to like her' (Kate Copstick, Scotsman). 'She's amazing' (Boy George).
