Jacques Barrett is Dynamite!
Jacques has been working the Sydney scene with steady progress since 2006. He hit his stride in 2008 and become one of Sydney’s most sort after club comics.
With a combination of social satire and impressionistic style he creates a charming stage persona. He takes his audiences on a journey that proves him to be sharp and original. Jacques is constantly evolving his stage act and his ability to write cutting edge topical material and deliver it in any medium has put him at the forefront of the new breed of Australia’s rising stars.
After studying acting in Adelaide, Cam moved to Melbourne and somehow ‘fell into’ doing stand up comedy and improvised comedy. This helped land him a spot on Channel 7’s sketch show ‘Big Bite’ and he hasn’t looked back.
Soon after his television break he successively appeared on nearly every Australian drama show before the Comedy Channel snapped him up as a resident comedian. During his time with Foxtel, Cam hosted many popular shows including; ‘Chain Reaction’, ‘We’ll Call You’, Hit & Run Series 2′, ‘The World Comedy Tour 2005′, ‘Thank Comedy It’s Friday’ and ‘Cam & Charlie’s Guide to the Festival’.
The list continues, however, his most notable work was on ‘Stand Up Australia’. This was a stand up comedy show featuring the best local and international acts, which he performed on and hosted 5 nights a week and ran for several years.
Cam performs improvised comedy regularly (often in the celebrity theatre-sports), travels Australia performing stand-up and his hosting and presenting experience ensures this gifted performer works constantly as a Corporate MC and Entertainer.
