Jaik Campbell

Jaik wanted to be a comedian at the age of 8, but only first started performing stand-up comedy aged 26, primarily as a way to help him get over his stutter. Jaik found that his stutter gave him a useful source of material when he was first starting out on the London Comedy Circuit.
So far, he has done over 800 gigs and has played venues such as The Comedy Store, Banana Cabaret, Headliners, Amused Moose, The Bearcat, The Comedy Café, Downstairs at the Kings Head, The Hackney Empire and The Chuckle Club, and has performed stand-up on ITV and BBC television. He has also been an Edinburgh Fringe Festival regular since 2001 and performed his first solo show there in 2005.
