Jake has had acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with his shows “Help! I’m Trapped In The Body Of An Adequate Comedian!” and “Neurotica”, securing four-star reviews across the board (‘****’ Darkchat)and a nomination for Neurodiverse Review’s Visually Impaired Excellence Award at Edinburgh Fringe 2022.

He has also taken his most recent show on a UK tour, with dates in Leeds, Newcastle, Manchester, Bristol and two dates at London’s VAULT Festival.
