A whole load of theatrical delights for 2018.
One of Hollywood’s fastest rising talents, Jermaine Fowler - the star and executive producer of 'Superior Donuts' – makes his UK stand-up debut at Soho Theatre.
Raised in Hyattsville, Maryland, Jermaine began performing stand-up in 2006 while still in high school. On his 20th birthday, he boarded a Megabus and moved to New York City with three pieces of luggage and a dream.
Wildly funny and full of infectious charm, Jermaine has toured the US as a stand-up comic. Named one of Variety’s ‘New Faces’ in 2012 at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, in 2017 Forbes’ featured him in their highly coveted ‘30 Under 30’ list.
Jermaine’s television credits include a recurring role in the Judd Apatow produced Crashing, Robot Chicken, BoJack Horseman, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Late Late Show with James Cordon and the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, for which he was the announcer.
He can next be seen in director Boots Riley’s Sorry to Bother You. Produced by Forest Whitaker, the movie premiered to rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival and will be released in June 2018.
‘He spins tales that feel both expertly structured and completely uncontrolled, swapping out emotions and characters with terrifying ease.’
‘Thirty seconds into a conversation with Jermaine Fowler and it’s easy to see why he’s on the verge of becoming a breakout star. Fowler has an affable yet frenetic energy that he channels into a career-driven focus.’
