Jay Foreman is a guitarist/comedian whose unique repetoire falls almost exactly halfway between live music and sit-down comedy. Flitting violently between subtle humour, catchy singalongs and mindless bad taste, Jay is drawing considerable attention even from people who aren"t students anymore. Achievements include BBC New Talent Pick of the Fringe, "best newcomer" at the Tuborg Musical Comedy Awards 2009 and "finalist" at the Musical Comedy Awards 2010. One of his songs is covered and played regularly by muscial comedy veterans Kit and the Widow. Jay can"t decide whether he"s happy about being known on youtube as the guy who wrote "Moon Chavs".
