English Stand Up Comedy – again at Smaragd! “In Stitches Comedy” (JACK HOLMES) presents OLLIE HORN (L.A.)
From theatres in San Francisco, to military bases in South Korea, hostels in Barcelona, and even former colonial post offices in Myanmar, Ollie Horn’s effortless stage presence and wide-eyed curiosity resonates with stand-up audiences the world over.
Having performed stand-up comedy in over 25 countries and counting, Ollie is not short of stories to tell and unique perspectives to share from his travels—not least the four years he spent living in Japan working as a minor television and radio personality. He has performed at the Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne comedy festivals in Australia, as well as enjoying a critically-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe festival with his debut solo show “Pig in Japan”, which went onto a 10 country sold out tour.
Ollie is at his best when in conversation with his audience, blending his considered, intelligent and personal stand up with responsive, curious and charming crowd interactions.
