As seen on: Britain’s Got Talent (ITV)

“An engaging feel good songsmith…charming cheer” The Sunday Times

“Guaranteed to lift your spirits” ***** Daily Mirror

Jonny Awsum exploded onto the professional comedy scene with a crowd-pleasing set that’s seen him perform his special brand of musical comedy around the world. He’s a comedic whirlwind, and has risen quickly from a fresh-faced newbie to a highly sought after headline act.

Audience members don’t just leave entertained, they leave as fans!

Jonny has been traversing the UK, and indeed the World, armed with an impressive arsenal of jokes and his trusty guitar. He’s a must see at comedy clubs, as his crowd-pleasing performance sees Jonny regularly ending his sets to standing ovations and demands of an encore.

Equally at home in front of a camera, Jonny reached the semi-finalist stage for Britain’s Got Talent in 2017 and has also recently appeared on the nation’s TV screens, presenting for Sky Sports, and is a familiar face from the current Experian adverts, and features in the Cravendale ‘Cats with Thumbs’ campaign, which has been viewed over a million times on YouTube.

Opening the show is the hilarious Jen Brister. After performing in front of the legendary Spike Milligan and receiving the luminous and prestigious title of having ‘a great pair of Bristols,’ Jen knew that comedy was the way forward. So with the help of two jokes and a push up bra she was on her way…

Since that heady day Jen has performed stand up in clubs all over the country (literally) and has appeared on Live at The Comedy Store (Comedy Central).

The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017)

Steven, a charismatic surgeon, is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart, when the behavior of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing turns sinister.

The corruption of innocence is at the heart of Verdi’s potent tragedy in David McVicar’s production for The Royal Opera.Rigoletto, court jester to the libertine Duke of Mantua, is cursed by the father of one of the Duke’s victims for his irreverent laughter.When the Duke seduces Rigoletto’s daughter Gilda, it seems the curse is taking effect…David McVicar’s production highlights the cruelty at the heart of the court of Mantua. Richly dressed courtiers engage in orgies and revelries to Verdi’s heady, spirited dances. The opera’s many musical highlights include the ebullient ‘La donna è mobile’, in which the Duke boasts of his disregard for women; Gilda’s exquisite, plangent duets with Rigoletto and the Duke; and the gorgeous Act III quartet that beautifully weaves the voices together as the story quickens to its shattering conclusion.Giuseppe Verdi wrote in 1855 that Rigoletto was his ‘best opera’. He had had to overcome state censorship to stage it –the censors objected to its depiction of an immoral ruler – but he was vindicated by the premiere’s huge success in 1851.Rigoletto was performed 250 times in the next 10 years and has remained one of the most popular of all operas.
