"Joel burst on to the comedy scene in 2007 and has never looked back receiving great critical acclaim for his Edinburgh Fringe shows."

The spokesman added: "The funnyman has gone on to appear in numerous television shows including Impractical Jokers (BBC3), Reality Bites (ITV2), Russell Howard's Good News (BBC), Drunk History (Comedy Central), and has performed in acting roles for Popatron (BBC2) and Skins (E4)."
