Jonny Awsum is an alternative comedian who reached the semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent in 2017.
A comedic whirlwind, Jonny’s feel-good brand of musical comedy has seen him rise from fresh faced newbie to a highly sought after headline act. Jonny has been travelling the UK and beyond, armed with an impressive arsenal of jokes and his trusty guitar. His crowd-pleasing set sees Jonny regularly ending his sets to standing ovations and demands of an encore.
"Awsum is sharp, likeable and his infectious and amusing songs, largely inspired by his day-to-day observations, provide numerous belly-aching, laugh-out-loud cheers. This is a fine burst of late-night slapstick goodness from promising debutant Jonny Awsum." – The Big Issue
" This person is unbelievable. Jonny Awsum; brilliant comic who has definitely got big things ahead for him."– Jason Manford
