About Dom Joly’s Holiday Snaps
JACKfm presents Dom Joly’s Holiday Snaps – Comedy in the Danger Zone
Despite being a highly successful, multi-award-winning comedian, Dom Joly has never been a stand-up. His work has always been on television or on the written page.
Under pressure to tour, he finally gave it a go in 2011 and was given a severe kicking by the comedy elite and press. This put him off for years.
Then ten years later, he had an idea for a show about his weird travel adventures.
He was immediately told by several promoters that such a show would never interest more than a handful of people. Dom decided to prove them wrong.
He put the show together and then set off on a mammoth tour around every tiny UK venue that would have him. Slowly he learned how to handle an audience, how to perform live.
After 199 shows, he is finally ready. Dom wants to end the tour with a big one and sell out the New Theatre in Oxford and prove everybody wrong, but will he?
Dom has also never done radio before. He joined JACKfm as the main station voiceover in July 2022 and also hosts the weekly show Dom Joly’s Sunday Session every Sunday afternoon, where he gets to play his own songs and chats to some of the singers who performed them.
JACKfm have booked the New Theatre Oxford for 20 January 2023.
Dom and the show are finely honed. All he needs now is for everybody to come and enjoy the end result.
Please see important ticketing information below.
