A phenomenal stand-up comic, Garrett’s breakout television performance was on the hit US late-night talk show Conan (TBS). His live show Sunflower became one of the best reviewed and most talked about shows of 2018, both at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and subsequently at London’s Soho Theatre. The show saw packed houses for both runs and regularly added shows to cope with demand. The show was Time Out London’s No.1 Comedy Pick for February 2019, and saw Garrett receive a nomination for ‘Breakthrough Act’ at the 2019 Chortle Awards. Garrett has since followed up the show with Smile and Just Trying to Help. The Times called Smile one of the stand out shows of the year and The British Comedy Guide named it one of the best reviewed shows of the year. All three shows transferred to London before touring the UK and have been recorded by 800 Pound Gorilla Records to stream and purchase internationally.

His new show Just Trying to Help was nominated for best show at the Leicester Comedy Festival and also received critical acclaim at the 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, being described as “a performance of rare force and intensity that overpowers his audience…It’s a travesty that he’s not much better known outside the comedy cognoscenti” (★★★★1/2, Chortle). The show later transferred to the Soho Theatre and is currently touring across the UK.

Garrett is currently working on a new sitcom which previously recorded a pilot for Audible produced by Hat Trick Productions and starring Jack Dee and Meera Syal. He previously created and co-hosted hit podcast Laughable with Jayde Adams and Red Richardson which was picked by the Guardian as one of the funniest podcasts to listen to during the pandemic.
