Prince of accessible content and OFFIE Award winning ‘brilliant… natural comic’ (Guardian) John Travulva critiques his best-known tick-box character: queer, non-binary, neurodiverse class-straddler Jodie Mitchell. Jodie has had great success appearing on Comedy Central Live and BBC Radio 4, writing for Sex Education and as a Funny [Women] Award Finalist, but should John do his debut show as them? He’s not sure, he gets a lot of praise as himself:
John Travulva’s set is so funny it makes all the comedy in my life up to this point redundant. – Theatrebubble
The comedy turn by John Travulva (the excellent Jodie Mitchell) left me with actual tears of laughter running down my face. – Diva
Standout talent…consistently funny while also being very sharp and moving. – The Stage
Travulva…has the audience in the palm of their hand, with excellent comic timing and a real warmth. -Upper Circle
