Jacques Barrett is an extremely polished and energetic performer who has been plying his trade on the Australian comedy and corporate circuit for ten years now.
His observational humour is so hilarious he often leaves audiences in stitches and unable to concentrate on the proceeding joke, what an untimely problem to have for a comedian!
He was first identified as a comedy talent in 2008 when the Melbourne International Comedy Festival selected him as part of their Comedy Zone Showcase for that year. The Comedy Zone showcase goes to a limited number (only four) of the most talented up and coming comedians in Australia. In addition JB was then selected for a five week Australian tour with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow, not a bad effort for a rookie. JB has let no one down since arriving on the scene and he has gone on to take no prisoners in his pursuit for comedic glory.
You may have seen Jacques Barrett perform live on Channel Nine’s The Footy Show and Jacques has recently been putting his comedy skills to the test in London where he is now based for a significant part of the year. Jacques has also lent his considerable comedic talents to other areas of the world including South East Asia, Sweden, Prague, Switzerland, Croatia, Romania, Estonia, Helsinki and South Africa. But never fear, at this stage Jacques is an Aussie through and through and is only ever a phone call away for your next corporate comedy event or sporting club extravaganza. But you better get in quick because it won’t be long till Jacques talents are exported to lands afar permanently.
