Jonny Awsum is a comedian who has performed shows internationally as well as throughout the whole of the UK. He has also performed at many UK festivals including Download, Guilfest, Buryfields and the Hull Freedom Festival as well as being the warm-up man for ‘Big Brother’ (Channel 4) and ‘Loose Women’ (ITV). He has gained a growing fan base with his original, fun material and catchy guitar riffs.
After spending eight years doing a ‘comedy apprenticeship’ (working as a barman in London’s Chuckle Club), Awsum has made the transition from the scared newbie to the headliner in a matter of months thanks to his likeable persona, witty charm and Tanglewood guitar.
Awsum is set to make his Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut with his hilarious new musical stand-up extravaganza Sexy Noises at the Gilded Balloon every night from 30July to 24 August.
See him discuss life’s biggest questions like are there any true men of the world? Could Jonny and the audience team up to win The X-Factor? And could anyone deal with the immense pressure that comes with that one shot to play the triangle? All the answers can be found alongside some feel-good musical comedy, friendly banter and a winning smile that has been seen presenting on Sky Sports.
