Joe Hobbs is a big boy.
After winning Breakthrough Comedian of the Year in 2018 & being nominated for the BBC New Comedy Award 2 years running, he’s now working on his debut solo show.
Why is he a delicate flower when he’s got the body of a 6’9” big boy?
Why did he move to South Korea after growing up a proper working class midland boy?
Why, in a review of his performance on a first date that he found published online months later, was he a five-out-of-ten boy?
And, when all the options seem rubbish, can he figure out what kind of man he wants to be so he can evolve into more than just a BIG BOY?
