At 6 feet 9 inches, Joe Hobbs is the tallest comedian in the world (probably). Hailing from a Northampton council estate, his easy conversational manner, irreverent charm and leftfield punchlines have brought him early critical acclaim, winning awards in two national new comic competitions, being nominated for the BBC New Comedy Award in both 2018 & 2019 (reaching the last 10 out of 700 in 2019), and being listed on the BBC's top jokes of the Fringe 2019.
He is now gigging in comedy clubs up and down the country, and in 2019 was selected to do the closing 20 minute spot at the prestigious AAA Stand Up late show at the Pleasance Courtyard at Edinburgh Fringe.
