More details

This Is Not A Holiday marks the eagerly awaited return of last year's hit character - hapless, upper crust adventurer Jasper Cromwell Jones.

Last year we experienced the highs and lows of Joe Bor's buffoonish creation as he recounted his epic mountaineering quest to an audience who were suspended in disbelief...that such a doofus could ever be allowed to do something that dangerous.

The consequences were, inevitably, disastrous. But that won't stop the well-bred bravura of this chap taking hold of him again. When Jasper learns that daddy is in the Outback, off he pops to Australia. However, his mission becomes more about survival than retrieval, and he's not helped by his laddish cousin Jimmy (Keiren Chambers) and his obsessive fan Gemma (Samantha Baines). Luckily Bear Grylls proves to be much more helpful.

Last year Joe Bor is Jasper Cromwell Jones was garlanded with 4 and 5 star reviews and optioned by TV company Yalli (Shed Media). Jasper's caper this year is directed by comedian Matt Green (mattjgreen.webs.com) and promises to reach even more heights.

Joe Bor is the warm up for The Graham Norton Show and Mock the Week. His comedy career has seen him crowned with numerous accolades including the winner of Jewish Comedian of the Year, but also Best Value Show at Leicester Comedy Festival, and he was a finalist for Comedian of the Year. Playing the prestige comedy clubs and festivals as a stand-up, Joe has also performed as part of two sketch groups and, in 2011, he wrote and directed his first play, Who Killed the Counsellor? Joe was named in The Daily Telegraph's top people to follow on Twitter and in The Scotsman's 21 Funniest Fringe Jokes. You can also see Joe in his stand up hour A Room With A Jew at the Free Festival.
