After failing his PhD and quitting his publishing job, Phil Jerrod decided entertain people across the United Kingdom with his constant rants about problems we encounter in contemporary British society. According to the Guardian, his ‘humour is straightforwardly observational, dealing in stories about his middle-class background, his working life and, yes, his beard; stories that are immediately relatable, concerning subjects that are familiar go-tos for many young comics’. The key thing to identify him, would be his ‘alarming amount of face foliage that clings to his chin’, and moves up and down with the jokes coming out of his mouth.
Described by the Guardian as ‘A Stand Up Gem’ and being a nominee for the Chortle Best Breakthrough Act in 2017, Suzi Ruffell is no small deal. She is constantly in demand in theatres across the UK for a hungry audience desperate to be entertained by her performances.
