Jacob Hawley

Jacob Hawley is a London based stand-up comedian, writer, performer and me, as seen on BBC3 and heard on BBC Radio 4.

 He (...I) first performed stand up in 2014, since then he's done hundreds of other, nicer gigs around the UK, including big old sets at some very nice clubs. He was a finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2017, he has won King Gong at The Comedy Store and he has written and starred (acted) in shorts for BBC3. In 2018 Jacob did a show called Howl (not sure what I should or shouldn't put in bold anymore) at the Edinburgh Fringe which went down quite well. I've be recording a chunk of it for a stand up special called Jacob Hawley's Welcome to Britain for Radio 4 in May, and some bits of it will be in a podcast called Jacob Hawley: On Drugs on BBC Sounds in the summer.

​‘Intelligent and important, his self-aware set sees him explore themes of class and identity in the modern world expertly.’ The Sunday Post

 ‘A down-to-earth talent who's got it in spades, it's an impressive, strong debut show that makes it feel like he's already been doing this for years.’ The List
‘His maturity of delivery & subject held us all in an unsnapping thrall. An ever-expanding intelligence, a keen analytical mind, & the talent to turn it all to comedy.’ The Mumble
‘Charming and sincere.’ The Peg Review
 ‘A mature, sharp wit, a relaxed manner and an undertow of political passion… Clever, and different.’ Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
​‘Mocks blind patriotism in an enjoyably offbeat way. Nicely Wry’ Steve Bennett, Chortle.
'A more nuanced exploration of youth, half-hearted liberalism, family ties and artistic expression, Jacob Hawley drew immediate and repeated laughs from the crowd. He was dry, perceptive and unexpected. A darn sight more entertaining than the majority of fringe comedians we've caught so far.' Voice Magazine
