Reviews of my Stand-Up:

“Big, fond of absurdity and with more than a hint of menace, Glaswegian Jordan RA Mills is another rookie with potential. The punchlines don’t always land fully but he embraces the weird when he finds it and invents it when he doesn’t, crafting creative takes on such mundane topics as the clocks going forward.”
Chortle

“You’ve got some nice lines.”
Adam Ethan Crow

“An 80% hit-rate of gags, which for a newbie is damn good, and the “Too soon?” comment after the Jesus gag was one of my favourites of the night”

    I liked ““You even made me laugh, and you’re not funny.”
    – My friend Rebecca.”

    and about the twitter nutjob: why would anyone defend govan???

    • jramills

      Have you met Rebecca? She’s been at the Halt a few times. She genuinely said that. And meant it.

      Govan is alright, having lived there for two years I’d defend it (a bit), but this eejit made the leap from a well-known phrase to somehow I’m insulting her hometown. Fuck knows, clearly that chip on her shoulder is so big it’s affecting her vision.

    Um, i think so :).
    And yeah…i don’t like govan. spend like 1 hour there per year…on a subcrawl lol
