“One of my personal favourite comedians…” Richard Herring
Hailing from the former mining communities of South Wales, drummer Wes Packer hung up his sticks and exploded onto the UK comedy scene in 2005 with his unique mix of righteous but usually-misplaced anger and admirable sense of rhythm.
After winning Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny within his first year and subsequently appearing at the Montreal Comedy Festival and on Paramount Comedy’s The World Stands Up – Wes quickly established himself as an exciting and fearless act and a firm favourite with audiences and fellow comedians.
“A compelling, bard-like narrative talent with energetic and fearless material.”
Sarah Radford, Newbury Today
During this period, Wes appeared at most of the UKs major comedy clubs, the Reading & Leeds Festival, BBC Radio, and ITV’s Glee Time while also appearing at clubs across the country and performing as part of the Cardiff Comedy Festival.
“Compelling viewing…thoughtful and intelligent as well as belligerent and bruising…left us breathless and reeling when he flexed his confessional muscle.“
Dave Owens, South Wales Echo
