Jethro delivers deadpan absurdism, original observations and awkwardly confident physical comedy and has been making waves since he first started performing on the comedy scene in 2013. Having come to stand-up via the London Improv scene he was quick to impress across the board and quickly secured himself plaudits as Winner of the BBC New Comedy Award 2016, The Welsh Unsigned Act Award 2016 and winner of the Comedy Store’s infamous, King Gong. Jethro has performed at numerous top-level clubs in the UK including The Comedy Store, The Glee Club, Downstairs at the King’s Head and Amused Moose Soho as well as performing at festivals including the Edinburgh Fringe and Machynlleth Comedy Festival. Jethro has appeared on BBC1, on BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends with Clive Anderson, and was one of Terry Christian’s selections on Pick of the Week. Jethro has also featured on BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio Wales (performing stand-up at Machynlleth Comedy Festival and also as a guest on The Jamie Owen Show).
