Full press release
In his highly-anticipated debut Edinburgh show Neanderthal, hotly tipped newcomer and eloquent bearded weirdo, Phil Jerrod, will be unravelling the mess that is modern British life.
Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year nominee 2015 and winner of Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival Best Debut 2015, Jerrod will be ranting against the daily frustrations we're all up against these days. Neanderthal man only ever had two worries - food and Tigers. Now look. Smart phones, Facebook, space monkeys, vampires, pensions, The Beatles, lasagne - how can we possibly keep up.
His passionate wisdom combined with occasional surreal flights of fancy, make for an hour of truly unique, intelligent comedy. Jerrod holds a mirror up to society today to see what's expected of us and how we're coping, compared to Neanderthal man and those baby boomers, the 'jackpot generation' who had is so damn good.
By the end though, Jerrod helps us to realise there's really not that much to worry about after all.
