Talented young comic Jack Carroll proved laughter is the best medicine
Talented young comic Jack Carroll proved laughter is the best medicine.
The Britain’s Got Talent finalist entertained at the annual charity ball organised by the consultants at the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust.
And the cerebral palsy sufferer delighted the doctors, surgeons and their guests with his wit.
The outstanding young comedian from Hipperholme, entertained more than 70 consultants and GPs at the event at the Venue, Barkisland, which raised £650 for Overgate Hospice, Elland.
Andy Lockey, accident and emergency consultant and education director, organised the event together with Kay Harvey, a consultant in the Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service.
Dr Lockey, said: “I am extremely grateful to Jack for giving his time for such a great cause.
“There is no doubt that he is one of the future legends of comedy and we have witnessed his talent at the outset.”
The youngster, who wowed millions on Britain’s Got Talent, is very much in demand.
He took to the stage in Huddersfield with comedian Jason Manford and has been signed by the star’s agent.
Jack, 14, has been signed up by Lisa Thomas Management, who also represent comedy stars John Bishop, Ellie Taylor and Jason Byrne.
And the Brighouse High School pupil was also asked to host the Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards earlier this month.
He rose to stardom last year at the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain awards.
Jack finished runner-up in BGT to shadow theatre group Attraction.
