Jay Foreman is a guitarist and comedian whose unique repertoire falls almost exactly halfway between live music and sit down comedy. Flitting violently between subtle humour, catchy singalongs and mindless bad taste.
'A Victoria Wood for the Spotify generation' (Chortle).
“With dark humour and wordplay reminiscent of Roald Dahl, he should more often than not grab the attention of even the most reluctant child..” (BroadwayBaby.com)
