JEFF JAPERS – Back by popular demand!

Award winning comedian Jeff Japers originated from Glossop in the North of England, and moved to Pontypridd in South Wales in 1992. He’s been writing comedy songs for over 20 years, performing them on the Welsh music scene to great acclaim, both with his band Gaudy Orde and as a solo artist.

In 2015 he brought his songs to the comedy circuit and by 2016 got to the finals of the Welsh Unsigned Stand-up Awards (WUSA). Since then he has become a regular headliner on the South Wales scene providing an entertaining musical performance of inoffensive daftness. Loved by children and parents alike! Jeff returns to Merthyr Comedy Festival after a hugely successful performance at the family show back in 2019.

''A musical comedy genius / idiot."

“Like John Shuttleworth on Pro Plus.”

“The audience loved the daftness of it.”


Jeff Japers performs comedy songs accompanied by a slideshow and a stuffed sheep. It’s an entertaining performance of inoffensive daftness including songs about Tigers & Bees and the missing junction on the M4 amongst many others.
