BIO

Jacob Hawley is a comedian, and, me.

 

He (... I) has written for The Sunday Times, The BBC, and is a regular columnist for The Metro (said columns can be read here.)

Jacob (it's hard to know what bits to embolden) has two hit podcasts, Jacob Hawley: On Drugs, and Jacob Hawley: On Love, both on BBC Sounds. The series have had over half a million downloads and earned Jacob a SILVER ARIA AWARD FOR BEST NEW PRESENTER and can be listened to here (was gonna make that text silver but the background's kinda silver).

He has also created two Radio Four stand-up specials, Welcome To Britain, and Class Act, which broadcast to rave reviews and features in The Guardian and The Independent. One of them can be listened to here.

Jacob tours around the country, to reviews similar to those below, and is currently preparing a new show, Bump, which you can see in previews by checking the next page.

‘Intelligent and important, his self-aware set sees him explore themes of class and identity in the modern world expertly.’
The Sunday Post
 ‘A down-to-earth talent who's got it in spades, it's an impressive, strong debut show that makes it feel like he's already been doing this for years.’
