14 Dec 8:00pm | Jake Howie – Let Them Eat Jake
Like rap legends Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year winner and NATYS New Variety Lives finalist Jake Howie is a lippy Queen. At a time when the truth is filtered as an Instagram influencer’s selfie, there has never been a better time to loosen your lips and talk truth. Join him as you takes you on a journey through this life thus far, from an excessively positive childhood in Scientology to meeting the foreign man of his dreams (kinda like in Eat Pray Love, but with more eating, less praying and Scientology). Jake explores love, religion and self-doubt with a “”warm, quick-witted irreverence”” (Brighton Komedia). Raunchy and “”never less than engaging”” (Bruce Dessau, Beyond the Joke) with zero bars held, this Kiwi comedian isn’t for those who are prudish or fake. And if they don’t like it? Well, Let Them Eat Jake!
