Critically acclaimed and adored by his peers, Jordan is riding high. There’s been so much buzz about him. I’ve heard he does absurd stuff on stage? Yeah sort of, but it’s also very accessible. Apparently, he’s a really nice guy in real life too. Yeah he is. Very charming. Yes, very charming. Got a lot of time for him. Shall we give him a go then? Oh, absolutely not.
An act unlike any other, he is the current master of absurd comedy, but with a big heart, a vulnerable brain and searing, hilarious honesty.
