Jack Gleadow


WINNER of 2018 Leicester Mercury Comedian of The Year

Award-winning, stand-up comedian and Hull local, Jack Gleadow, is one of the most unique performers on the UK comedy circuit today. He takes his inspiration from the golden era of variety; Jack is the One-Man Variety Show with the use of sounds, stories, jokes and a scooter!

In the words of Leicester Comedy Festival, after winning the prestigious 2018 Leicester Mercury Comedian of The Year award, "Jack bowled over the judges with his quirky set; a delightful blend of audience participation, wordplay and physical comedy."

Jack is in huge demand on the live comedy scene. All well as performing across the top UK comedy club such as The Glee Club, The Comedy Store and Just The Tonic, Jack has just returned from Edinburgh Fringe where he performed every day as part of the Pleasance Comedy Reserve, now in it’s 14th year! He has also been on the road as tour support for Lloyd Griffith and featured at Latitude’s main Comedy Arena (a mere 3,500 people!) and The Cabaret Stage 2017 and 2018.

Having also just graduated from Salford with a First in a BA in Radio & Television, Jack has a keen interest in presenting. Even at such a young age, Jack has extensive experience working in a professional studio environment. He has fronted promo videos for several indie production companies and festivals as well as hosting live events such as comedy gala shows, alongside the likes of Reginald D Hunter, Joe Lycett, Russell Kane, Sean Walsh and Miles Jupp.

Following his recent award-winning title, Jack will return to Leicester Comedy Festival next February, which will mark his debut full-hour solo show at the festival.
