Plastic Jeezus: The Comedy Duo Revolutionising Musical Humour

Published:

Winners of ‘South Coast Comedian of the Year’ (2022), British Comedian of the Year Semi-Finalist, ‘Best Newcomer’ at the Musical Comedy Awards (2021), and ‘Circuit Breakers’ at Leicester Comedy Festival (2022), Simon and Aaron are Plastic Jeezus, a deadpan musical comedy duo performing side-splittingly surreal and unique original songs.

The Bournemouth-based pair’s comedy turns the serious business of making music on its head, busting through genres and teaming them with observational comedy. Tracks like ‘Hold Music’ are set to become future classics, alongside the hilarious ‘My Angle (A Lovesong, Autocorrected)’ and earworm single ‘E For Effort’. The music is interspersed with Simon & Aaron’s hilariously quirky leftfield humour, keeping audiences in stitches, and leaving us all wondering what it’s like inside their wonderfully imaginative heads.

Plastic Jeezus have rapidly built up an incredible reputation as a live act, storming comedy clubs across the UK. They have played alongside some of the most exciting acts in the UK, including Seann Walsh, Marcus Brigstocke, Ed Byrne, and Angela Barnes. The duo has performed at clubs including Brighton Komedia, York Barbican, and Comedy All Stars, as well as festival shows in Hastings, Brighton, and Shaftesbury and a sell-out Leicester Comedy Festival show. Their popular TikTok live video has over 130k views.

“Finally, we get to bring our unique blend of misanthropy and small instruments to Edinburgh. We think songs about life in Dorset, played on a tiny bass, will thrill the good people of Wales”.

In praise of Plastic Jeezus:

“With their pin-sharp lyrics and affable nature, musical duo Plastic Jeezus look set to soon have many disciples following their comedy adventures”

British Comedy Guide

“Plastic Jeezus combine satirical, sharp writing with musical talent and natural timing. Intelligent jokes and a brilliant, authentic comedy understanding allows you to get totally absorbed in each hilarious premise. Musical comedy at its best”

Tom Brandt (Head of Content, NextUp Comedy)

“I can’t recommend these guys enough. They are dark, daft and bloody hilarious!”

Chris McCausland

These guys are going straight to the top”

Ed Chappel (Musical Comedy Awards)

“When Plastic Jeezus took part in (and eventually won!) my new act competition I had to double triple check they weren’t a pro act signed by a big agent. They have the perfect personae to win over any crowd and hilarious tunes to back it all up. It’s hard to explain how Plastic Jeezus really work their magic but imagine a 21st century Laurel & Hardy as a ukelele duo and you’re pretty close”

James Alderson (Promoter / South Coast Comedian of the Year – Organiser)
