Jed Stone is a well known host & compere on the corporate events circuit, as well as being a highly entertaining after dinner speaker. He started out fronting top comedy show band Scholar, as guitarist and vocalist, the band were very popular in UK. Learning their craft the hard way; starting by playing the then notorious Northern club and progressing to touring Britain and eventually all over Europe. They released the single ‘Bambino’ which failed to reach the charts, only by about 1 million copies!
The band however made many successful tours; of Germany for Her Majesty’s Forces and of Europe for the US Airforce and had a fantastic time. When they finally went their separate ways Jed moved into comedy. At first as a comedy guitar and vocalist, in the same hard Working Men’s Clubs; and eventually becoming a stand up comic in his own right.
He has survived to tell the tale and he reckons that the grounding has made him now into; one the funniest and most respected comedians in Great Britain. Jed is a comedy buff and a bit of a football anorak. He has a collection of comedy from some of the greats of stand up, old stuff is still the best. He and his wife Jackie raise money for The National Autistic Society; through various events which included Jed competing in The Great North Run, he also raised money for Cerebal Palsy Sports.
