London Limelight & ArtHouse Jersey present Jazz Emu: You Shouldn’t Have. Direct from a sell-out, critically acclaimed run in London’s West End, global sensation Jazz Emu brings his stand-up musical spectacular to Jersey Arts Centre.
“This is a work of genius” The Telegraph ★★★★★
In 2016, Jazz Emu played the biggest gig he’d ever landed at the Helsinki Velodrome. But during his between-song patter, he carelessly insulted one of his biggest fans. What he said doesn’t bear repeating, but let’s say the Scandinavian Goblin community may never look him in the eye again. Now he’s back to clear his name and regain his former glory. Will he be able to surmount the insurmountable and get every single person in the world to like him? Or is it time to face the music?
“I barely stopped laughing for a whole hour” The Times ★★★★★
Jazz Emu’s videos and songs have garnered over 50 million streams online. His musical character comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe 2022 (Jazz Emu: You Shouldn’t Have), was included on The Telegraph’s “Top Shows To See At The Edinburgh Fringe”, and the British Comedy Guide’s “Best Reviewed Shows At The Edinburgh Fringe”. Since 2019, he has been building a cult following with songs and sketches from his awkwardly‐smooth comedy character Jazz Emu, resulting in plays on BBC RADIO 1 and multiple performances on BBC RADIO 4’s THE NOW SHOW.
WINNER: Chortle Legends of Lockdown 2021, Chortle’s Best Character or Variety Act 2023, Chortle Social Media Award 2023.
