He does the Utter Shambles podcast with Josie Long and the famed Book Club comedy night, as well as thoughtful shows that let fascination with science and understanding fuel the humour. He has also appeared on the Stewart Lee curated “The Alternative Comedy Experience” (Comedy Central).

MC: JACK DE’ATH
Regular host of Laugh Out London and an emerging versatile comic of charm, props and pasta. There maybe Caramac involved, there may not. His off-beat humor often uses silly drawing and games, which has lead him to be described as “slightly surreal” by a number of people.
