Jarred Christmas Stands Up
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2010
Following sell-out shows in Edinburgh and London, a starring role in a BBC2 sitcom and dancing like Beyonce for Pot Noodle, Jarred Christmas returns to do what he does best...stand-up. Winner of Chortle Comedy Award 2010.

This is an odd review - on the one hand Mr Christmas is reported as being consistently 'entertaining and enjoyable' but on the other he is lacking 'punch'. Why is 'punch' a prerequisite of comedy achievement?! I saw Eddie Izzard starting out in Edinburgh many many years ago and not unlike Jarred Christmas he proved to be an all round funny man and achieved a rapport with his audience that did not depend on 'punch'. While this reviewer's expectations were compromised the one hour of a sustained high energy and consistently funny and charming performance was undoubtedly more than enough for me and the full house audience last Sunday night.
