Jeremy is one of Britain's most respected stand-up comedians, with live work that has included Just 4 Laughs, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (where he won the prestigious Perrier Award) and numerous sell out tours of the UK and Ireland. An ability to turn conventional social mores on their head in a whimsically subtle way belies a razor-sharp wit that hits the target and generates huge amounts of laughter every time. His satirical and slightly surreal impressions of members of the establishment have often prompted great mirth and recognition amongst live audiences.
Jeremy is also a favourite with BBC Radio 4 audiences, regularly appearing on the station's much loved long-running shows The News Quiz, I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue and Just A Minute. He also wrote and narrated his own long-running series of monologues for Radio 4, the highly acclaimed Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation.
Jeremy made his television debut in the late 1980s in various comedy shows including Blackadder Goes Forth (1989), and has presented a television documentary about the political background to the English Civil War.
Jeremy is one of the sharpest comedians around and is very much in demand as a speaker or host, always one step wide of insult and one step ahead of expectation. To book him, contact a Prime Performers Booking Agent via the online booking enquiry form or alternatively call 020 7251 8222.
