Jeeves Verma

Jeeves (he/him) has been a Sydney-based stand-up, sketch comedian, and Bunnings sausage sizzle supporter for the last 10 years. You might have seen him on a few TV commercials, on stage, at a comedy festival with his solo shows, or with Osher Gunsberg’s NTNNNNN crew.

His passion for improvised comedy lead to a long-term committed relationship with ITS: starting as a student, graduating levels 1–6, being a member of ITS House Teams (Inside Scoop and Improv Theatre Kidney) and becoming a teacher.

Jeeves studied medicine once upon a time and chose to leave his medical career in pursuit of the ‘best medicine’. He is a beautiful idiot, but as the Herald Sun once correctly identified, ‘there’s something endearing about this mustachioed teddy bear of a man.’

Improv loves: How much it’s made me appreciate being a team player on stage. It’s improved my view on comedy, and I think improv has made me be a better comedian.

Favourite improv advice: Enjoy the fact that there’s never a ‘right’ answer.

Hobbies: Building/crafts, etc. Trips to Bunnings. Being creative. Being a total child.
