Michael Brunström: World of Sports

A regular headliner on the South Wales comedy scene, providing an entertaining musical performance of inoffensive daftness.

Jeff might be throwing some of his newer ideas into the mix for this show, which will be a nice treat for his loyal fans! ‘A musical comedy genius / idiot.’ (Neath Comedy Festival). ‘Like John Shuttleworth on Pro Plus.’ ‘The audience loved the daftness of it.’ (Chortle).
