About Jake Howie: Read My Lips

Warm, quick-witted and ready to bring some well-needed positivity to 2018, newcomer Jake Howie brings his frank take on life, love, sex and politics to this year’s Fringe.

They say a loose pair of lips could sink a ship, but you have to talk truth to give reality a flip. And reality in 2018 needs the hard word, so there’s never been a better time to get lippy. Jake Howie doesn’t pay lip service - there’s no time for niceties when the world is drowning in disillusion. Join him as he takes you on a journey through the lens of an eternal optimist trying to grapple with the wild truths of today. All you have to do is shut your mouth, open your eyes and Read My Lips.

Jake started as an improv performer in his hometown of Auckland and went on to appear in TV commercials, professional theatre shows and even on New Zealand’s longest running soap opera. He moved to London to pursue a career in stand-up in 2013 and soon started gracing the country’s finest comedy clubs. He has performed at the Camden Fringe, the Brighton Fringe, the Leicester Comedy Festival, the Bath Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe and went on to win the Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year, The Blackout at Up the Creek, New Act of the Week (five times!) at the Comedy Café Theatre as well as becoming a finalist at the prestigious New Variety Lives New Act of the Year competition.

Venue: Just The Wee One - Just the Tonic at the Caves, 253 Cowgate, EH1 1NN
