Award winning UK comedian Jeff Green brings his extraordinary new show to Sydney Comedy Festival. More than ‘just’ an hour of festival favourite Jeff’s trademark rapid-fire stand-up, Letters Home is a series of warm and hilarious monologues to his family back in England

Between 1947 and 1982 over a million people (the ‘10 quid poms’) travelled from the UK and Ireland to Australia as part of the Ten Pound Assisted Passage scheme. Before the advent of email, text, cheap phone calls and Skype these migrants kept in touch with their loved ones back home through sending letter and postcard requests to the long-running hit BBC radio show Two-Way Family Favourites.

Along with most of the UK, Jeff and his family were glued to the kitchen radio every Sunday lunch, the overly dramatic and sweeping theme music mingling with the smell of the roast being cooked in the oven. As a child listening to those requests from people living in exotically named places abroad Jeff would wonder what they looked like, imagining sun bleached places similar to the countryside he’d seen on TV shows like Skippy and later Walkabout.

In homage to the memories of those separated souls and reflecting on his own experience abruptly leaving the UK 10 years ago, Jeff’s Letters Home will be 10 letters (monologues) to his family back in Britain.

This remarkable new show will still contain the ridiculous, silly comedy Jeff is known and loved for, delivered in a striking new format that is sure to be a truly memorable experience for both Jeff and audiences alike.

Jeff celebrated his 30th year in stand-up comedy last year, selling out shows in the UK and all over Australia while picking up his usual five star reviews and gushing accolades along the way… don’t miss this unique new show from one of Britain’s most enduring - and endearing! - comedy talents, Jeff Green.

"an eminently likeable bloke... always a reliable bet for a good laugh. He delivers in spades" Australian Stage

★★★★★ “Jeff Green's a scamp, a treat, a gem” The Herald (UK)
