With a keen eye for observation filled with self-deprecating charm, Elie Kraft began performing comedy after becoming a finalist in the renowned Chortle Student Comedy Award. Beginning comedy in Leeds, he soon found himself performing at comedy clubs and events, such as The Stand and the Comedy Arena at Latitude Festival. He now lives in London.

He has recently been featured in a sketch for Comic Relief and his punchy material has led him to win The Frog and Bucket’s ‘Beat the Frog’ night and beat the Comedy Store’s King Gong.

He has been selected for this year’s Bound & Gagged’s AAA Stand-Up where he will close the Underbelly show every day of the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
