Joe Hobbs

Joe Hobbs

At 6 feet 9 inches, Joe Hobbs is the tallest comedian in the world (probably). Hailing from a Northampton council estate, his easy conversational manner, irreverent charm and leftfield punchlines have brought him early critical acclaim, winning awards in two national new comic competitions, being nominated for the BBC New Comedy Award in both 2018 & 2019 (reaching the last 10 out of 700 in 2019), and being listed on the BBC's top jokes of the Fringe 2019. He appeared on Jonathan Ross' Comedy Club in 2020.​
