A satirical exploration examining the eccentricities of the collective British character through the universal language of eccentric dance, circus skills, classic song and variety skill routines, entwined with an original funky soundtrack and intimate comedy.

This duo have a totally fresh approach to the presentation of comedy classics, combined with a sensitive use of volunteers to comedic effect making the audience part of, not apart from, the show.

In the winter the show is available as ‘Jones and Barnard's Comedy Christmas Cavalcade’.  This seasonal variety show features spinning Christmas Puddings, a festive soundtrack and the usual amazing variety stunts.

‘Matt and Gareth were great - true pros, the event was a community variety show with them providing most of the variety… they went down a storm and were much loved by all; please thank them from me.’

Hey guys have just seen Jones and Barnard in Bournemouth at the Metropole Street Market. They were utterly brilliant. Haven't laughed so much or had so much fun in years. They had the crowd completely rapt. Deep respect.... I want MORE!!!!
