Jason Goliath describes his love for comedy as 'laugh at first sight'

Jason Goliath is a larger than life comedian who literally is larger than life (it’s because all this personality won’t fit into a smaller body ok!)

With a commanding stage presence, ridiculous amounts of energy and a character based set focused on making audiences laugh at life’s uncomfortable truths. He has performed successfully at numerous corporate events and leading comedy rooms/events.

Jason Goliath describes his love for comedy as 'laugh at first sight'.

It felt like bungee jumping because it is was terrifying. The second you get that first laugh, there was a rush that went through my body that I'd never experienced. It was a high that stayed with me for weeks thereafter.
