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 oversharer Jack Barry has announced two special performances of the critically-acclaimed show Tango as part of his debut UK tour following a sold-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe where the show received exclusively 4- and 5-star reviews. His sauciest show to date will be performed at London’s Soho Theatre on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th May. Tickets can be found at sohotheatre.com
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 has forced Jack to look at his own sexual failings and try to be a better lover. He hopes that by telling you all his secrets, he can help everyone have more fulfilling sex lives. Hopefully everyone can get something out of this show, so bring your parents, bring your grandchildren, bring anyone!
The self-titled ‘most famous comedian no one’s heard of’ can be seen/heard on The Russell Howard Hour (Sky One), Catastrophe (Channel 4), Turn Up Charlie (Netflix), Cuckoo (BBC Three), BBC Radio 4, Channel 5 and ITV2. He is a writer for Mock the Week, and has toured with the likes of Russell Howard, James Acaster, Joe Lycett and Marc Maron and has featured on Roast Battle at the Comedy Central Festival.
