Good on him - Bicester is a a hard place to get laughs in - he did
He's a good gag writer and a good improviser.
I saw Jem last week at the Comedy Cavern in Bath and to be honest was disappointed. Admittedly, he was overshadowed by the other two comedians who were brilliant, but I felt Jem never got the audience on his side. He had some good jokes, but he seemed more interested in talking to individuals rather than pleasing the crowd. He looked awkward and made the audience feel the same way.
I have seen Jem twice now and he had me laughing all the time. He's a great guy.
Jem has some very good gags and works hard and puts himself on the line with his improv. Does loads of gigs and turns up with a smile always on his face. That sounds like a good comedian to have around.
I first saw Jem at the opening of Clap & Tickle last summer. Thought he was good then. Saw him last week at the Balloon in Manchester and thought he was brilliant. Comic of the night hands down with some great material delivered brilliantly. The red army marches on!
Having seen him at the Comedy Brewhouse many times, there's no question that he's a good compere and improvisor.
Jem seems to be consolidating his great improv ability, compering experience and gags rather nicely these days. Also, what many people forget is that the 'Parrot-Headed Midget' can get through a whole cuttlefish and an entire bag of trill in between his gags during a mere ten minute set. That's no mean feat,
