Comedytrain International Summer Festival: Jack Barry & Lou Sanders
Jack Barry is probably the only stand up on the circuit with a degree in Chinese. What a waste. After excitedly stumbling his way around the stand up and sketch circuits, performing at nights for CKP, Knock 2 Bag, the Invisible Dot and the BBC Comedy Tent in Edinburgh, Jack then went on to support James Acaster on the UK tours of Edinburgh Award-nominated shows Prompt and Lawnmower.
In 2014 Jack performed in the prestigious Comedy Zone as well as performing on the Free Fringe as one half of sketch duo Twins. Jack had previously performed as part of the Pleasance Comedy Reserve and in double-header Your New Mild Friends. Jack first appeared at the Festival as part of critically acclaimed student sketch group Leeds Tealights named Best Student Sketch Group in 2010.
