Jan Jack’s Laughter-House Comedy Club

Back in 2006, and bored of pushing paper clips round her office desk, Jan Jack scuttled off to attend a comedy workshop in London.  At one point she recited some Rather Naughty Poetry to the class, amid much laughter. “You’re very funny” said the Head of the BBC Comedy website.  “You should be on stage”

So Jan began performing on the Open Mic circuit – funny poetry combined with stand up comedy.  A year later she opened Basingstoke’s popular comedy club Jan Jack’s Laughter-House.  Already being constantly asked to write bespoke verse for friends, she closed the door on office life in 2009 and set up…..

Jan Jack’s Perfect Verse – Bespoke Verse for Weddings and Occasions

With her unique talent in combining stand up comedy with poetry, Jan quickly gained work writing personalised poems.  Using her comedy writing experience she specialises in warm, witty and emotional bespoke verse for wedding reception speeches, birthdays and anniversaries.

Jan has also written radio advertisements and promotional verse for businesses,  Most of her work comes via recommendation.

Each Perfect Verse is a completely bespoke poem and carefully crafted by Jan herself – so she only accepts a limited number of commissions each month.


Jan Jack has published 2 books of funny verse – Animal Angst (which is suitable for all ages) and  Muffs Chuffs & Nonsense’ (Poems for Grown Ups) which isn’t!

Jan speaks at events, with a mixture of story telling and poetry, and also runs workshops on how to add appropriate humour to presentations (please see Jan Jack’s Use Humour Win Business website)
