star!’ – Derbyshire Times
Jared burst onto the comedy circuit in style in September 2012 by becoming runner up in Stagefright Comedys ‘Crooked Smile New Act Of The Year Awards’ in only his second gig at the age of 17!
Shooter’s presences on stage is key to his style, his energetic persona portrays life as a teenager discovering the adult world for the first time. In his material he describes his life experiences, relationships with family and friends and some observational humour mixed with clever one liners and witty anecdotes.
“Undoubtedly an exhilarating new voice… Totally at ease on stage and with the most well-constructed set of the night” (Spoonfed)
“His Linguistic background provided him with a brilliant flare in storytelling. His sentences gained speed and momentum, and all the more laughs, as they unfolded to reveal a sharp wit and intelligent comedy.” (Leeds Student Paper)
Callum got into comedy after being kicked out of one too many heavy metal bands, and hasn’t looked back since. Gay and furious, he combines impotent rage with childlike awe and often painful truths. He is getting by the only way he knows how.
