Welsh Comedian Kiri Pritchard-Mclean has been making something of a name for herself in the short time she's being performing stand up comedy and has achieved further success as one fourth of multi-award winning sketch group Gein's Family Giftshop (in capacity as writer/director). A unique and assured comic voice Kiri is whip smart with material to match, an apprenticeship on the North West comedy scene equips Kiri with a presence beyond her years and the rare ability to be challenging in her material without alienating her audience.
An increasingly impressive comic, making powerhouse standup from the thorniest of subjects” (The Guardian)
Best described as ‘darkness wrapped in glitter’ as she delivers some brutal jokes with a disarming smile” (Chortle)
"Intellectual chuckles from someone destined for higher praise indeed” (The Skinny)
Jack is probably the only stand up on the circuit with a degree in Chinese. What a waste. Jack supported James Acaster on the UK tours of Edinburgh Award-nominated shows Prompt (2012), Lawnmower (2013), and Recognise (2014). He can also be seen on James Acaster’s web series Sweet Home Lahnsteineringa, and his recent television appearances include Catastrophe (Channel 4).
