Welsh Unsigned Stand Up Finalist 2011 and winner in 2012. 'Brookes has clearly spent time meticulously planning the theatrics, the jokes, the absurdity, and the outbursts to a beat and shows all the signs of a highly skilled comedy writer and performer' (www.chaplinmoustachecomedy.co.uk) '... the best joke of the night...' (Loaded Magazine) 'His role as an outsider was thoughtfully created and brilliantly executed' (South Wales Echo) 'Had it not been for his nomination for a Comedians' Choice award, Jordan might have flown under the radar completely this Fringe. And that would have been a shame, as he deserves recognition for doing something a little different with the art form... with performance skills to spare and an innovative approach running through this assured debut like lettering in seaside rock' (Chortle).
