Just The Tonic Working From Home – Good Riddance 2020 New Year’s Eve Special: Online: 2020
I have seen Fringe regular and New Zealand powerhouse comedian Jarred Christmas perform a few times at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Every time, the comic either compered or performed a twenty- minute no-nonsense, high energy, lightning quick set that was extremely funny.
Christmas stormed Always Be Comedy at an Edinburgh fringe preview I saw in June 2018. I have seen Christmas perform before and he was a comedy stalwart who charged onto the stage wanting to make the audience laugh. Armed with his booming delivery, he proved his worth by delivering an hour of side-splitting belly laugh routines and banter. What I found particularly exciting was his frank, no-nonsense, sit up and listen, but very warm attitude. It was a pleasure being entertained by this very funny man.
The comedian also compared sections of the Just The Tonic New Year’s Eve Special online that I watched in December 2020.
The comedian was fearless and talked about any subject on stage always enticing the laughs at just the right moment to a very satisfied audience.
