Jacob Hawley's Welcome to Britain

In this stand-up special, comedian Jacob Hawley discusses his experiences of living in Britain and how it feels being a working-class man from a leave-voting town.

Jacob Hawley is a BBC New Comedy Award Finalist, a tattoo-emblazoned young man from a working class, leave-voting town, who now boasts an arts degree, a vegetarian girlfriend and an almost convincing concern for climate change - so not far off Billy Elliot.

In this stand-up special, he brings material from his 2018 Edinburgh show Howl so that foreigners and, if they’re listening, aliens, can find out first hand what Britain is really like - based on Jacob's experiences of the monotonous suburbs, the insular small towns, the hypocritically righteous city and their inhabitants.
