Jake Donaldson is a professional stand-up comedian from the North East of England who has become a regular on the UK comedy circuit. Jake made his debut appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2018 with "Help! I'm Trapped in the Body of an Adequate Comedian!" to sell out rooms across the month. A small UK tour followed, which included a sell-out performance at The Basement York, and shows at The Bill Murray in London and Alphabetti Theatre in Newcastle.
He returned to the Fringe in 2022 with "Neurotica", a brand new stand-up show which was nominated for Neurodiverse Review's "Visually Impaired Excellence Award" and received both critical and audience acclaim. He is now taking the show on a UK Tour, including performances in Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle and two dates at VAULT Fest in London.
