Jonny Pelham began doing comedy at university and while he was there he achieved runner-up in both the coveted So You Think You're Funny competition and The Chortle Student Comedy Awards. After graduating Jonny continued to impress and was a finalist and judges choice in the BBC Radio New Comedy Awards, as well as being nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer in 2014.
With four critically acclaimed solo shows under his belt, Before and After (2015), Fool’s Paradise (2016), Just Shout Louder (2017) and Off Limits (2019), Jonny has also made the exciting step over to the small screen on Russell Howards Stand Up Central for Comedy Central followed by Live From The BBC. Jonny has also appeared in the Viceland series, Bobby & Harriet Getting Married and Plane Spotting for Turtle Canyon, as well as his own short film released as part the Sky Comedy Shorts season, Late Bloomer.
After an incredibly successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer, which included winning the Herald Angel Award for Off Limits, Jonny took the show to the Soho Theatre, and most recently filmed for Live At The Apollo, which will be on our screens this autumn.
Jonny is developing a number of projects, both scripted and unscripted, for TV, and has written and starred in his own Blap for Channel 4 which currently in production.
