Performing at Comedy Squad comedy club in Hertford on Friday 15th March 2019 at The Corn Exchange, Fore Street, Hertford, Herts
Like many an Essex boy before him, James Sherwood was raised in Oxford, Bristol, Essex, and London, went to Magdalen College, Oxford and sang in the choir. Early comedy success included being a semi-finalist in ITV’s stand-up talent show Take the Mike, being a runner-up in the BBC New Comedy Awards and the FHM Holsten Pils Comedy Final.
Imaginative musical jokes and beautifully crafted original comedy songs…The material he offers is fresh, contemporary and pin-sharp original. The Guardian
“brilliantly conceived and very funny … Sherwood has phenomenal stage presence” The Scotsman
“his piece grammatically correcting songs is worth the ticket price along … clever, funny and will have fans singing along” Chortle
“anyone who can make a song about inflation and unemployment funny is surely worthy of your attention” **** Three Weeks
“savage satire” Sunday Times
“piercing” Evening Standard
“sharp, precise and ingenious” Chortle
