Like rap icons Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year and 2018 NATYS Finalist, Jake Howie is a lippy queen. At a time when the truth is filtered like an Instagram influencer's selfie, there has never been a better time to loosen your lips and talk truth.
Join him as he takes you on a journey through his life thus far, from a spiritual childhood in Scientology to meeting the Italian man of his dreams (kinda like Eat Pray Love... with more eating, less praying and Scientology).
Raunchy and irreverent with zero bars held, Jake isn't for those who are prudish or fake. Either way, the people shall enjoy his reign on the stage. And if they don't like it? Well... Let Them Eat Jake.
