JARRED CHRISTMAS, originally from New Zealand, has a unique style that deftly mixes gags with storytelling. He has a dynamic onstage persona and the ability to improvise and roll with anything that's thrown his way, making his comedy sizzle with originality.
Full of passion and charisma, Jarred takes the audience on a hilarious thrill ride of laughs and gasps with an edge of anger that manifests itself in his incredible rants against the small things in our lives.
On television, he has appeared as a performer and guest panellist on shows such as BBC Two's Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Mock the Week, BBC Three's Russell Howard's Good News, Channel 4's 8 Out of 10 Cats and Dave's One Night Stand.
In 2011, Christmas took part in Let's Dance for Comic Relief. He has also appeared on Celebrity Mastermind alongside fellow comedians Imran Yusuf, Karen Taylor and Russell Kane.
