Comedy Underground I Jacques Barrett

2021 sees our (your) Jacques enter his 12th year as a full-time comic. A decade as a pro, well-loved by his peers, one of Australia’s top-line bona fide international headliners… Boom-Jacqua-Laka explores the journey that brought him to this very moment. Every idiot has an origin story…this is his.

“Pretty damn impressive” Time Out
“Impeccable comic timing and an endearing quality that only few comics possess” The West Australian
