Jamali Maddix is one of most promising and exciting acts to hit the circuit in years. With an assured stage presence and considered material that comes from a fresh perspective, he already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond his years.
His natural confidence and charm allow him to tread gracefully across more sensitive topics leaving many of his contemporaries behind.
In his first two years of performing Jamali won the Comedy Café New Act of the Year Competition and the Chortle Student Comedy Award - all while making it look effortless.
Jamali has a plethora of gigs under his belt - he plays the Comedy Store and toured with them in the Middle East. In June 2015 he supported Jim Jefferies before a 3,500 strong Hyde Park audience. His debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe was a total sell out and received rave reviews.
He has also done a plethora of TV shows including The John Bishop Show, Live at the Apollo and 8 out of 10 Cats. Jamali also became one of the faces for the new Viceland TV channel with his own series “Hate Thy Neighbor”.
