Edinburgh Previews- John Hastings and Phil Jerrod

Hullabalooman Comedy is very excited to be hosting it’s first Edinburgh Preview this June. We have two superb award winning comedians treating us to a sneaky preview of what they’ll be getting up to in Edinburgh this year.


John Hastings has been performing stand up all over his native Canada since 2006. Since winning the 2010 Irwin Barker Canadian Homegrown Championship at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, he has been nominated for a Canadian Comedy award in the category of Best Newcomer and was named one of the five "comedians to watch" by the Canadian Comedy Network. He was the youngest featured performer at the 2011 Winnipeg Comedy Festival and was the youngest and only Canadian finalist of the 2011 San Francisco International Comedy Festival. His stand up comedy special was chosen to be the last ever, on the 15-show run of Canada’s only stand up comedy showcase program “Comedy Now.” After 6 years John also won the prestigious COCA Comedian of the year award for 2012. Now his comedic pursuits take him to the United Kingdom and he nervously okay with being here.

"A strong calling card for a thoughtful and observant comic with enjoyably wry sensibilities" - Chortle

"He was fast, polished and had an original slant. We will hear more of him."

"He hits that sweet spot" - Now Magazine
'Shockingly good' (Montreal Gazette)

'Particularly awesome' (San Francisco Examiner).

Phil Jerrod began his stand-up career underneath an Angus Steakhouse in 2012. Since then he has failed his PhD, walked out of his job in publishing and been entertaining audiences up and down the country with his elegant rants on the often unfathomable problems of modern life.
