It’s not often we get a regular David Letterman comedy guest performing in London, but that’s what we have in the form of Jake Johannsen.
Despite being little-known on these shores, Johannsen has appeared on Letterman’s chat shows a total of 46 times, putting him high up on the list of Letterman’s most frequent guests. He’s a master of delivery, with inventive takes on familiar themes. To LiF he has a Jerry Seinfeld-esque appeal, though more silly and flighty, allowing himself to roll with the tangents.
And you can see them for yourself, as Johannsen is making a rare appearance in the UK with a run of shows at the Soho Theatre, between June 23 and 29 – and London is Funny has a pair of tickets to give away!
There’s no competition element for this one (despite the email address I’m about to give you), just email firstname.lastname@example.org, leaving your phone number (which will not be passed onto third parties), and a lucky winner will be pulled from an e-hat.
Here are a couple of videos of Jake in action:
