His energy and enthusiasm combined with lightening quick ad-libs and topical bang up to date material ensure that every function is always a huge success, and make Jed one of the most sought after comedians in the country.
Jed is unique in that he can turn his hand to anything in comedy; this led to him appearing at The Labour Party Conference in Blackpool 2002 with Tony Blair and Bill Clinton in attendance. He can personalize his material especially for the client, which is why he hired regularly by some of the U.K.’s biggest blue chip corporate companies including The Royal Bank Of Scotland, British Telecom, Volvo Trucks U.K., to name but a few.
You only get one chance to book the right comedian for your function; to Jed every show is a major event.
Jed started out fronting top comedy show band “Scholar” as guitarist and vocalist. The band were very popular in U.K., learning their craft the hard way starting by playing the then notorious Northern club, and progressing to touring Britain and eventually all over the Europe They released the single “Bambino” which unbelievably failed to reach the charts only by about 1 million copies!
The band however made many successful tours of Germany for Her Majesty’s Forces and of Europe for the United States Air force and had a fantastic time doing it. When the band finally went their separate ways Jed moved into comedy, at first as a comedy guitar and vocalist in the same hard Working Men’s Clubs and eventually becoming a stand-up comic in his own right.
He has survived to tell the tale and he reckons that grounding has made him now into one the funniest and most respected comedians in Great Britain.
Jed is a comedy buff and a bit of a football anorak, and has an extensive collection of comedy classics from some of the greats of stand up, the old stuff is still the best stuff.
Jed and his wife Jackie raise money for The National Autistic Society through various events which included Jed competing in The Great North Run, he also raised money for Cerebal Palsy Sports.
