Jack Campbell, 23, of Penn Way, battled through the stages of a national competition, which attracted more than 300 entrants, to win the top prize of £1,500 and a chance to perform at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in February next year. In the competition final held at the Udderbelly on London South Bank, the comedian faced nine other award-winning comedians as he performed in a show hosted by Mock the Week regular Stephen K Amos. I was a bit overwhelmed really, Jack told The Hunts Post. I was just having a nice time and there were other people who I knew there that night. Not only was Jack the youngest at the final, he was also the only comedian who has a day job he makes a living as voice over artist. But that may now change with his ambitions to write and perform for television. As a former teacher at Peterborough Regional College, Jack uses stories and observations from his life to get the laughs from the audience. Although he doesnt have a best joke, he said: I have a piece I use in every single place which is: Sometimes when Im bored I watch snooker on rewind so it looks like the referee is stealing the balls. Its a joke, he added, that fails to work at a snooker club. Former Abbey College student Jack said he was funny as a youngster but so were his mates they used to just make each other laugh. His love of comedy started when he was young and included watching comedy on VHS tapes, but Jack didnt start stand-up until university where he got involved in the comedy society. Although his dad Peter is very supportive of his stand-up, he said his mum Karen does not really understand it and thinks he should probably get a proper job. Jack is currently performing across the country and will be at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival next month with a two man show These Boyz Need Therapy.
