Jay Lafferty

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Engages her audience with such playfulness and genuine curiosity we have no choice but to cling to her every word.’ – EdFest Magazine

Sought after for her on point satirical views Jay Lafferty has become a regular face on BBC Scotland’s television channel. It was a performance on BBC’s Breaking The News that saw Lafferty hit the front page of The New York Times for her on point description of Theresa May’s catastrophic handling of the Brexit deal. Her Edinburgh Fringe 2019 hit solo show Jay Lafferty: Jammy was made into a BBC Radio Scotland three part series – Jay’s Jammy. During the pandemic alongside the rest of the world Jay took her work online performing comedy all over the world from the comfort of her living room while continuing to be a regular voice on BBC Breaking The News.
