Jakey P steals the spotlight
By Matthew Seymour
Jakey P's well delivered, amusing jokes and on-stage presence certainly got the judges' attention at BBC Radio York's stand-up comedy event, More Front Than Scarborough. So much so that this cheeky chappy came a very close second! Watch his act.
Ten year old Jakey P is from Scarborough, and in Jakey's words this is why he started comedy: "When I was 3, I was in a talent competition and was supposed to be singing Bob The Builder. I came out on stage, was handed the microphone, decided I didn't want to sing so I switched the microphone off, and threw my Bob The Builder hat on the floor. This got me loads of laughs, so I decided then to give up on the singing and turn to comedy!!"
Jakey has entered many talent competitions, and for the last 3 years he has won "Park Resorts National Finals" for the '11 Years & Under' section. He has recently appeared on "The Paul O'Grady show" and has just auditioned for the new Simon Cowell show, "Britain's Got Talent".
