From Cumbernauld and already building a reputation for his punchline-packed onstage performance, Jack Traynor is flying up through the comedy ranks. His stand-up takes an oblique look at himself and the world around him. Jack is also part of the “Wholesome Prison Blues” collective, alongside five other local comedians, and the group have been performing in prisons across Scotland since November 2022. With over a dozen shows in the bag, all smash’n’grab hits, plus repeat shows (for good behaviour) already booked, it’s an hour of guaranteed laughs and no-holds-barred stand-up for a (not quite) captive audience…direct from the Big House to the Fringe.
Appearing at the fringe for the very first time, Jack co-starred with fellow Scottish comedian Daniel Petrie at Just the Tonic.
Traynor has a wide ranging set that gets laughs from Kelpies and ketamine, his travels in Thailand and his surprising obsession with Susan Boyle. He is likeably down to earth,… you will be impressed.
