Jason Peck

"Jason Peck is the type of cheery chappy with appealing tragic-comic eyes and expressive face that would work well in a TV sketch show or sitcom." - Chortle

Jason Peck is a lively comic actor and writer who has a flair for improvisation and enjoys twisting his face and voice into different characters.

He began his acting career working internationally with the West Sussex County Youth Theatre before training at The Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts Ltd. Since then he has worked in both Europe and the UK performing in new and classical plays.

As an actor he has appeared in new works such as "The Ostrich and The Dolphin" (St. John's College Theatre, Cambridge), and "Skeleton Woman, Lady Death" (The Lion & Unicorn Theatre) as well as Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (Bushey Open Air Theatre).

As an improviser he performed with The Spontaneity Shop in Keith Johnstone's "Micetro" (The Cockpit Theatre) and with The Real Lies Theatre Company in "Hello Something Else Goodbye" (The Washington). He also regularly performs with The Abandon Theatre Company in their improvisational show "Your Line or Mine?"
Jason has also worked as a writer and performer on London's longest-running satirical sketch comedy show "Newsrevue" (The Canal Café Theatre). He also writes for the Brighton-based sketch comedy show "The Treason Show".

A frequent solo performer he has appeared at various venues including Express Excess, Shortfuse and Bohemian Voices. This subsequently led to the development of his first one-man show, "Please Stop Trying To Kill Me, Dad", which went to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2004.

With directorial assistance from Award-winning director Peta Lily, Please Stop Trying To Kill Me, Dad is about a father's attempt to make a man of his son whilst being strangely drawn to acts of violence. The inspiration for this fusion of comedy and pathos came from Jason's father running him over in a dumper truck when he was nine.

Jason is currently developing a romantic comedy entitled "Head Over Heels". An early draft of the script got through to the semi-finals of the Chichester Festival Theatre's Playwrights Slam in 2005.
