Christmas in the UK

Comedian Jarred Christmas is in the UK touring his show, Jarred Christmas Stands Up. Christmas reveals he cannot get enough of the UK’s comedy scene. “The crowds over here are so savvy when it comes to comedy and it is usually a pretty diverse audience and they do not mind telling you if they do not like you!” Christmas says. Aside from his gigs, Christmas has also made appearances in the UK on the likes of Mock the Week and panel show Big Brother’s Little Brother. Upcoming tour dates include Loughborough on 31 October, Basingstoke on 6 November and Leicester on 12 November.
