A Young Yorkshire comedian with a disability is preparing to make the nation laugh out loud with a new comedy show. Britain’s Got Talent Jack Carroll is all set for his new show ‘Walking Funny’ where he will be performing at 17 venues including theatres, arts centres and comedy clubs across the country. Jack is teaming up with fellow comedian and best friend Pete Selwood who will be on hand as the main support act for the tour.
