Jed Salisbury is a high-energy, jolly young man with a warming charm and an innate sense of funny. He has taken mischievous crudeness and belly-laughing cheekiness and mixed them with modern edginess to create a truly unique act. Jed’s act takes the audience on an adventure of hilarity using a blend of mirth-filled stories from his journey from boy to man-child and out-of-the-box observations from a mind that has seen too many bad movies and too much late night television.
Jed is a Hull-based comedian, who started on the comedy circuit in November 2009. His first gig was ‘The Art of Comedy Showcase’ which went on to win the best show of the 2009 Hull Comedy Festival and since then he has performed hundreds of gigs across the country. Jed has performed everywhere from bars and established comedy clubs to performing at festivals, he performed and compèred at East Yorkshire’s own TribFest in 2010 and also at Hull’s Freedom Festival 2010 – the biggest free arts event in Yorkshire. Jed made it to the 2010 C69 New Act final, the 2012 Laughing Horse Quarter Finals and placed second at the final of Hallam FM’s Grand Comedy Howler Competition 2011. Jed has also recently provided comedy warm up for BBC Radio 1’s Live in Hull weekend. As an act Jed has been pushing his way on to professional bills at comedy clubs around the country and has been performing as a solid opener and closer on less established events.
