Following BGT, Jonny enjoyed a whirlwind 18 months including a sell-out five-star reviewed run at the Edinburgh Fringe, a starring role in his first pantomime, and tour support to both Lost Voice Guy and Tape Face on their hit UK theatre tours.
After being inundated with requests to perform his own tour, Jonny created the show ‘Jonny Awsum is Coming to Town’ and played to full houses in many of the UK’s towns before COVID-19 put a temporary halt on live performances.
Undeterred, Jonny set about writing a virtual show specifically for youngsters. The show proved a hit, winning Best Kids’ Show at the 2021 Leicester Comedy Festival and is now being booked for live performances by family-friendly festivals and events all across the country.
