Jerry specialises in devised theatre. Since 1999 he has been a regular collaborator with Forced Entertainment, appearing in over a dozen of their shows and performing all over the world. He does appear in the occasional play, like Swedish poet Niklas Rådström's Monsters about the Bulger killing, directed by Christopher Haydon.
He’s more often to be found in mainland Europe, working with people like Flemish choreographer and film maker Wim Vandekeybus, for whom he has starred in two feature films: Galloping Mind and Monkey Sandwich, the latter being selected for the Venice Film Festival.
His career-long dedication to work which pushes at the boundaries between theatre, dance and visual art has earned him passing mentions in several books on contemporary theatre. He features on the cover and in the text of Claire MacDonald’s book Utopia: Three Plays for a Postdramatic Theatre.
When theatres closed in the pandemic he began accepting choice roles in prestige TV, playing Paddy Spooner in Quiz (Stephen Frears, 2020) and the German internet cannibal Karp in The Fear Index (David Caffery, 2021)
