Ashley Blaker is an internationally acclaimed comedian, seen and heard on TV and radio across the world. He has performed on five continents including tours of the UK, USA, Canada, South Africa, Israel and Australia. His 2018 Off-Broadway run was called ‘a slickly funny stand-up show’ by the New York Times and in 2020 he returned with ‘Goy Friendly’ which ran at the prestigious SoHo Playhouse. In August 2018, Ashley made his debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with a sold-out run of his show ‘Observant Jew’. Then in May 2019, he began a sold-out tour of his new show ‘Prophet Sharing’ alongside Muslim comedian Imran Yusuf. He is the first Orthodox Jewish comedian to be given his own BBC show – ‘Ashley Blaker’s Goyish Guide To Judaism’ – and his new four part series ‘6.5 Children’ comes to BBC Radio 4 in 2021.
Since the Covid-19 pandemic Ashley has been in huge demand, appearing online for organisations all over the world as well as performing his own streamed specials to thousands of viewers. Ashley has been featured on PBS News Hour, CBS, Fox News, in the New York Times, New York Post, Financial Times, Jerusalem Post, Wall Street Journal, Süddeutsche Zeitung and in Jewish newspapers all over the world.
In October 2019, Ashley produced the triumphant return of the comedy phenomenon ‘Little Britain’ after a 12 year hiatus. As an award-winning comedy writer and producer, he has worked with a who’s who of British comedy. If he has any free time, then it’s spent being run ragged by his six children and three cats.
