Jacob Hawley: Fruit Machine
  • Edinburgh Fringe

In his first solo show, stand-up comedian Jacob Hawley (Comedy Store King Gong winner, Fresh Comedian of the Year finalist, four-star Brighton Fringe 2016) brings tales of patriotism, wasted liberalism and camels. Forty-five minutes of introspective stand-up and heartfelt japes from a boy raised in a working-class Brexit town, who now boasts an arts degree, a vegetarian girlfriend and an almost convincing concern for climate change. It's not quite Billy Elliot, but it's something. Dry, perceptive and unexpected. A damn sight more entertaining than the majority of Fringe comedians we've seen (ArtsAwardVoice.com).
