Jonny Pelham began comedy at University and while he was there he achieved runner-up in both the coveted So You Think You’re Funny competition and The Chortle Student Comedy Awards. Since graduating university Jonny has continued to impress and was a finalist and judges choice in the BBC Radio New Comedy Awards, as well as being nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer in 2014.
This year has seen Jonny make the exciting step over to the small screen on Russell Howards Stand Up Central for Comedy Central as well as bookings to write for a number of up-coming television projects.
In addition and following on from his critically acclaimed debut solo show, Before and After at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015, Jonny has just returned from another hugely successful Fringe year where he took his hotly anticipated follow-up show, Fool’s Paradise.
