The UK's finest young character performer, and most sought-after young television writer, brings his much-anticipated debut Fringe hour to the Pleasance Courtyard.
Character comedy from the character comedian who dares to say what everyone's thinking, and saying. Join Jamie Demetriou for an hour of instability and fractured optimism.
Jamie Demetriou is the one of the most exciting natural comedic talents the Fringe has ever seen. His deeply studious approach to character construction, along with an encyclopedic knowledge of British comedy, has helped him define a norm that he is able to subvert so expertly. His application of filmic and televisual influences on stage has made for an innovative and truly unique solo debut.
Jamie performed at the Fringe for the first time in 2009, as a member of student sketch group The Bristol Revunions. Following three years of widely acclaimed university revue shows, Jamie went solo last year, performing a 30-minute showcase as part of PBH's Free Fringe.
The free show was a snowballing, word-of-mouth hit. Most recently he has written and recorded his own three-part series of Comedy Blaps (with Ash Atalla's Rough Cut Productions for Channel 4). He wrote/performed in the first series of sketch show Anna & Katy (Channel 4), and has been asked to collaborate as part of the writing/performing team for the second series of Cardinal Burns (Channel 4).
