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 had 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 the very funny man.
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.
