The brand-new show, 'Jazz Emu: Knight Fever' sees him performing his clever fusions of music and comedy skits alongside a full live band, ‘The Cosmique Perfectión'.

Jazz and the band are rehearsing for their performance in front of the King at the Royal Variety Performance. But this is not just about performing, this is also a race for a Knighthood. And it comes with some competition in the form of Kelly Clarkson and then some unsavoury allegations which threaten to derail Jazz's mission of pipping her to the post.

The show is side-splittingly hilarious in places with the clever use of screens to illustrate emails, texts and even a Zoom call. But it's also static at other points with some jokes not landing and seeming more Mr Bean-esque than Jazz Emu.

Some of the singing is questionable but it feels as if that's part of the humour of the performance and its awkwardness adds to the hilarity of sometimes not understanding what is even being sung.

It's clear from the audience that Jazz Emu has quite the fanbase and if his socials are anything to go by then he's already amassed followers and views of his work that some could only dream about.

'Jazz Emu: Knight Fever' is running until 22 June with a slightly later than usual start time of 21:30. If you can't catch him this month, he's got a full run throughout August at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a separate tour in 2025.
