Jake Lambert fell into a career as a stand up after gaining a following on Twitter under the pseudonym @LittleLostLad and deciding to put down his iPhone and pick up a microphone. It has proven to be a great choice with him making it to the final of the Amused Moose Final 2016, semi-finals of the BBC New Comedy Award 2015, Magners New Comedian of the Year 2015, English Comedian of the Year 2015 and the Leicester Mercury New Act of the Year 2015.
Now, with two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival and a deluge of fantastic reviews, Jake is quickly making a name for himself, his combination of one-liners, short stories and strange thoughts has seen him perform on Comedy Central’s Live From The Comedy Store and ITV2’s Stand Up Sketch Show. He has also been incredibly busy doing tour support for his comedy peers including Seann Walsh, Kerry Godliman, Tom Allen, Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan as well as gigging at comedy clubs, universities and theatres across the UK, as well as still making his ever-increasing Twitter following laugh.
Jake’s incredible joke writing has made him a firm favourite writing extra material on shows including; The Apprentice: You’re Fired, Mock the Week, The Now Show, 8 Out of 10 Cats, The News Quiz, Virtually Famous, Bake Off: The Professionals, Bake Off: Extra Slice, and Chicken.
