‘avin a laugh

I’m proud and honoured to be an official artist for the world-famous Jongleurs comedy clubs.

CEO Kev Orkian said, ‘At Jongleurs Group Ltd, we pride ourselves on working with incredible talent. Jay Fortune is one of those unique talents, we are very excited to be working with him and creating some incredible artwork for our 40th anniversary tour.’ 

Kev and I go back a long way. Our paths crossed way back in 2001. Kev is one of the world’s greatest comedy pianists, a superb entertainer. When we first met, Kev took me under his wing as a budding comedy magician. Before long we were doing shows together and expanding our range of shows, engaging other entertainers and taking on more prestigious gigs. 

I ‘retired’ from performing at the end of 2018, yet Kev and I have always remained good friends. When Kev acquired the world-famous Jongleurs business, we discussed how I might apply my art to his touring shows. We’re excited to collaborate and I’ll be undertaking paintings of famous comedians past and present from Jongleurs. These paintings may go on tour with the acts, so watch this space!
