WINNER - 2018 Leicester Mercury Comedian of The Year
and Chortle’s 2019 Best Newcomer nominee
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 also the winner of 2017’s Amused Moose National New Comic, and more recently nominated for Chortle’s Best Newcomer and Leicester Comedy Festivals’ Best New Show, both in 2019. He recently recorded an episode of Amazon's Audible Presents.
Jack is in huge demand on the live comedy scene. All well as performing across the top UK comedy clubs, Jack has been featured on the comedy stages at various festivals such as Latitude and Glastonbury and has also provided tour support for Lloyd Griffiths. He is now preparing to mark his debut solo show, Mr Saturday Night, at the Edinburgh Fringe. This is after performing as part of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve, now in it’s 14th year!
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 commercial and promotional videos for various 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. He's also performed for Harry Hill.
Recently Jack performed on the Alternative Stage at Reading & Leeds Festival. He is starring in the 2021 Hartlepool Christmas Pantomime Cinderella.
