Julie Jay is a comic who has taken the comedy world by storm in recent months. She has also supported the biggest names in comedy, including Neil Delamere, Ardal O’Hanlon, acted as resident support act for Tommy Tiernan on his Paddy Crazy Horse Tour and most recently MCed the 2019 series of the Tommy Tiernan Show.
Her new show ‘Julie Really Love Me’ explores her quest for validation, applying lessons gleamed from Oprah in the early nineties to modern life, navigating being childless in the state of Gilead and guards. Lots and lots of guards.
One of the most exciting new voices on the Irish comedy scene, her on-stage warmth accompanied by a sizeable side dish of distinctly Irish self-deprecation. Wry wit, neurotic ponderings and clever joke-writing make her an act not to be missed.
“The brightest, funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time” – Tommy Tiernan
“One of Ireland’s leading comedians” – The Journal
