What a time to be alive!!
Every August comedians descend on Edinburgh for the worlds biggest arts festival, so what better than to preview some of the outstanding shows heading north this summer...
2pm - 3pm
Patrick Monahan - Classy (This show is 12+)
In a world of groups, hierarchies and class systems, everyone’s trying so hard to fit in. What's wrong with being a misfit? Be you, be proud! From the caravan to the middle-class neighbourhood, it's taken Monahan four decades to realise this. Enjoy Monahan's stand-up observations on living a contemporary life. As seen recently on BBC One’s The One Show, Loose Women ITV, BBC's Asian Network. 'Rip-roaringly funny….. another hour would have suited everyone!’ ***** (One4Review.co.uk). 'Hilarious' ***** (Three Weeks). 'Terrific Comic' **** (Scotsman). 'Definite must see!' **** (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine).
3.30pm - 4.30pm
Mark Simmons - Quip Off The Mark (This show is 18+)
The Mock The Week panelist and master of one-liners returns with another show jam-packed with cleverly crafted jokes and improvised gags.
5pm - 6pm
Larry Dean - Fudnut (This show is 14+)
Double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and star of Live at the Apollo returns with a brand new hour of 'confessional storytelling at its funniest' ***** (Herald). As seen on Michael McIntyre's Big Show, Mock the Week and Roast Battle. 'Destined to become a household name' **** (Telegraph). 'A national treasure' **** (Chortle.co.uk). 'Unexpected and excellent' **** (Sunday Times). Nominee for Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Show 2018. Winner of the Amused Moose Comedy Award for Best Show 2016. Nominee for Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer 2015.
6.30pm - 7.30pm
Eleanor Conway - Talk Dirty To Me (This show is 18+)
Following her first US tour and millions of views over lockdown for her blunt takes on dating and being a child-free badass, this award-winning stand-up is back with a sex-positive, high-energy banger. In a world where women in heterosexual relationships still do the bulk of housework and childcare, yet orgasm the least during sex, Conway asks: are we really that far along in the fight for gender equality? Who really benefits from marriage and babies? How can straight women finally negotiate equal pleasure in the bedroom?
8.30pm - 10pm - Braintree Comedy Gala
A selection of comedians entertaining you all hosted by James Beatty.
One ticket provides access to ALL SHOWS across two spaces. What a time to be alive!!
