A SHORT DESCRIPRION OF THE ACT
Jeff Japers performs comedy songs accompanied by a slideshow and a stuffed sheep. It's an entertaining performance of inoffensive daftness including songs about Tigers & Bees and the missing junction on the M4 amongst many others. He delivers his songs with an energy perhaps unbefitting of a man his age.
In addition to being an MCA winner and WUSA finalist, Jeff's other achievements include;
- winning the Risa Worldwide Ukulele Video Competition 2007.
- performing to the First Minister of Wales at a ‘Size Of Wales’ charity event in the Wales Millennium Centre in 2011.
- winning the Away Resorts 'Star On Holiday' Grand Final in 2014.
