Jordan Gray is an English comedian, recording artist, radio host, actress, author and Pokémon Master.
She came to fame on BBC1’s The Voice UK in 2016 #TeamPaloma. Jordan made TV history as the show’s first ever Transgender contestant – and the first competitor ever to be asked back to the show within the same series.
In 2017, after a decade in the pop and indie music industry (touring and recording under the pseudonym Tall Dark Friend) Jordan announced her leap to stand up comedy… on April 1st.
Comedically, she draws from the likes of Russel Brand, Tim Minchin, Kate McKinnon, Ricky Gervias and Chris D’Elia. Musically, her voice and stage persona have been likened to Marc Bolan, Kate Bush, Michael Jackson, Freddy Mercury, David Bowie, Florence Welch and Tracy Chapman. She is unlike anyone else you will have ever seen.
She features regularly on national and international radio and podcasts – highlights incl. BBC’s Radio 1 with Nick Grimshaw and a feature episode on Scroobius Pip’s chart topping ‘Distraction Pieces’ podcast (iTunes #1 download).
A skilled cartoonist and sketch writer, Isa recently turned her hand to stand-up comedy, with spectacular results. After reaching the final of BBC New Comedy Award 2018 she has also become a member of Soho Theatre’s Young Company.
"A distinctively offbeat way of thinking, generating off-kilter punchlines that are hard to see coming." Chortle
