Bill Cosby, Robin Williams to our very own Naveed Mahbub- stand-up comedians never fail to crack us up. Stand-up comedy is perhaps one of the most challenging forms of performance art, as it is done in front of a live audience and can be an instant hit or miss. Although the theme of stand-up comedies varies amid a wide range of topics, the most popular of them are usually mature content. Amongst all the adult jokes and toilet humour, we bring to you 3 stand-up comedians who deliver perfectly clean comedy, as all of them are still under 18.
Jack Carroll became famous at the age of 14 when he became the runner-up of the seventh series of Britain’s Got Talent. Jack was born on 15 May 1998 in Yorkshire, England. He started performing when he was 12. Besides stand-up comedy, Jack also stars in TV series. What makes his acts unique is that the subject matters often revolve around cerebral palsy, a disease he suffers from. He won the “Pride of Britain” award in the “Teenager of Courage” category in 2012. He has also signed a deal to write an autobiography.
Here’s a glimpse of his hilarity:
