Sharp and biting…entertaining and amusing Three Weeks
An inventive flourish behind his likeable banter… a distinctive wit that should make him one to watch Chortle
Acclaimed stand-up and compulsive over sharer Jack Barry is set to embark on a debut UK tour of his critically-acclaimed show Tango from 7th February to 14th March after a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe where his sauciest show to date received exclusively 4 and 5 star reviews.
In the last year, Jack Barry has been reading up on sex, love and relationships. He’s definitely not an expert but he’s been appointed by his parents as their couples’ therapist to save the marriage. Studying all things erotic to save his family has allowed Jack to blossom into the total sex god that is he today. Tango is packed with thrills, spills, and slip ups. It’s good clean fun… but warn your parents first.
The self-titled ‘most famous comedian no one’s heard of’’ can soon be seen on The Russell Howard Hour (Sky One), while his other credits include Catastrophe (Channel 4), BBC Radio 4, Channel 5 and ITV2. He is a regular writer for Mock the Week, and has toured with the likes of Russell Howard, James Acaster and Joe Lycett as well as featuring on Roast Battle at the Comedy Central Festival.

Barry is so laid back he’s almost horizontal ★★★★ The List
Barry is Eddie Izzard-like in his excellent use of callbacks… a chipper, friendly, and optimistic performer with a strong debut hour of stand-up and enormous potential…I anticipate the rest of his career with great interest Broadway Baby
