Jon O The Long Boy

Even more impressive than Jon’s height, is his length. Jon is a long boy with long limbs. I mean look at that wingspan! Like an albatross.

Join Jon as he uses his well-endowed extremities to pick up things that do not belong to him and put them in his pocket. He will also do a performance... Sketch, stand-up, theft, improv, you name it, Jon does it! Marvel at Jon’s rubbery face (did I mention the extraordinary texture of his face?) before he is locked away, for a very long time.

Criminal defence lawyers enter free.

The Long Boy is Jon O’s debut live comedy show, adopting a fluid, fast-paced, bizarre and quirky style of physical, clown, sketch, improv, stand-up and music comedy.

Jon takes the audience on winding, tangential paths of sketch comedy, full of quirky and memorable characters. He is a tall boy, but more importantly a long boy with long limbs... it’s a long story. Jon O continuously transforms through worlds, characters and props across a range of comedy situations, making full use of his long lanky limbs and rubbery face.

'The whole thing is clearly made with an abundance of joy, intelligence and ear for timing. That and endless energy, Jon O here is a runaway train of jokes, characters and comic tirades. ★★★★'  Theatre People

'He’s the man of a thousand faces.' Tay Around Town
