He is also the co-host of hit podcast Laughable with Jayde Adams and Red Richardson which was recently picked by the Guardian as one of the funniest podcasts to listen to during the pandemic.
Garrett’s breakout live show Sunflower became one of the best reviewed and most talked about shows of 2018, both at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and subsequently at London’s Soho Theatre. The show saw packed houses for both runs and regularly added shows to cope with demand. The show was Time Out London’s No.1 Comedy Pick for February 2019, and saw Garrett receive a nomination for ‘Breakthrough Act’ at the 2019 Chortle Awards. Garrett’s follow up show Smile surpassed Sunflower, once again selling out its run and adding extra shows.

Smile transferred to London before touring the UK in 2020.
Both shows were recorded by 800 Pound Gorilla Records and are available to stream and purchase internationally.
