We’re very excited to announce two fun-packed days of Edinburgh Fringe Festival previews and work in progress shows from some of the best acts warming up for August’s Edinburgh Fringe. Comics include stars of Live of the Apollo, BBC, Dave TV, Radio 4 , Comedy Central, Mock The Week and much more with a multi-award winning international bill of great comedians. This will be like a mini visit to the Edinburgh Fringe for the price of the average cost of two shows in Edinburgh!

For a single fantastic value ticket price, you get access to a full two days of comedy from early afternoon to late evening. So you can see as many shows as you like in one weekend without the expensive accommodation, long journey to Auld Reekie and diet of deep fried haggis suppers - all without leaving London! So rather than stepping on a train out of Kings Cross step into the Chapel Playhouse for a brilliant weekend of comedy in the heart of Kings Cross.

Tickets give you access to the whole day and you can dip in an out as you please, there will be reasonable breaks to grab a drink, fresh air, food, empty your bladder, then head back in for more funnies. What’s not to like?

The Chapel Playhouse is located in the cool air-conditioned basement of the re-opened café-bar Bread & Roses @ The Chapel, within walking distance of King's Cross St. Pancras Station.

The Chapel Bar is a friendly new cafe-bar in Kings Cross, only a few minutes stroll from Kings Cross St Pancras Underground Station, and serves very reasonably priced drinks and a tasty food menu.

Previous Acts recently appeared at Chapel Playhouse : Josh Widdicombe , Henry Paker, Simon Brodkin , Tom Rosenthal , Jamali Maddix, Lloyd Griffith , Shappi Khorshandi.

Running Order / Preview Time slots will be announced on the day so arrive early to seize the day , grab a midday drink and bite to eat ,and great ready see a load of brilliant shows!!! Come and see as many or as few acts as you want for one great price! Please follow social media for updates:

Shows run from 1.30pm until 11.30pm (7 x Approx One Hour Shows with 30mins breaks in-between). Acts listed in no particular order

Ivo Graham: The Game Of Life
The time for faff is over: has Big Daddy Graham got the skillz (anecdotes / banter / topical asides) to pay da billz (gas / water / electric)? More hilariously anxious blather from one of the most hilariously anxious blatherers in the business. As spotted on Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Live From The BBC, Cats Does Countdown, Richard Osman's House of Games, Roast Battle, Hypothetical, The Stand Up Sketch Show, The Now Show, Fighting Talk. "A hugely enjoyable hour of stand-up comedy" - The Times **** "On the brink of comedy's Premier League" - Evening Standard ****

Carl Donnelly: Shall We All Just Kill Ourselves?
Double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Carl Donnelly returns with a new show about how difficult it is to be a good person in the modern age. As society becomes more and more self obsessed and fractured, Carl is now questioning the point of it all and is contemplating starting a cult! Come along if you want to join him. Carl has appeared on such shows as ‘Mock The Week’, 'Alan Davies As Yet Untitled’, ‘Russell Howard’s Stand-Up Central’ and more. He is also a regular on radio and the co-host of the ’Two Vegan Idiots’ podcast as well as one third of the ‘Babysitting Trevor’ podcast which was runner up in the best comedy category at last year’s British Podcast Awards. The Guardian “Observational genius" Sunday Post “Entertains and informs in equal measure as he opens up his mind to a room full of strangers”

Sara Barron: Enemies Closer
2018 Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer nominee. Sara returns to the Fringe following her 5* debut hour and two sell-out runs at London’s Soho Theatre. Her stunning new show examines kindness, meanness, ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, current husbands, all four of her remaining friends, and two of her twelve enemies. As heard on The Guilty Feminist and BBC Radio 4.‘Destined for major stardom …simply unmissable’ (Times) ‘An excellent line in cynicism about sex, life and friendship.’ (Evening Standard)‘Filthy and fearless.' **** (Telegraph) ***** Broadway Baby ***** Funny Women ***** Wee Review ***** Skinny

Nigel Ng: Culture Shocked
Nigel Ng (as seen on Comedy Central's Standup Central, Roast Battle) brings you on a joyous romp through his life in the UK as a Malaysian immigrant. See him tackle topics close to his heart, both big and small, from "How to retain one's cultural identity when in a foreign land?" to "Is Wagamama's actually Asian?".Tipped as 'One To Watch' in 2019 by Chortle.“Brilliant... Go see him” ★★★★★ One4Review

Phil Cornwell: Alackadaddy
Who is Robert Lemon Alackadaddy? Well he's certainly a geezer that's done many a thing. Come meet Phil Cornwell's altered ego. One of the UK's best impressionists; his cult appearances including Stellar Street and Dead Ringers. He's also been in nearly all the Alan Partridge shows and films, and has voiced many characters on Spitting Image, Bob The Builder and also (his most famous voice) Murdoc in the Gorillaz! Book early! 'Superb character skills' (Comedy.co.uk). 'A cult favourite' (Guardian).

Jenny Collier: The Jen Commandments
Multi award-winning Collier is back with her brand new stand-up show. 'Brilliant... Infectious to watch and a joy to behold’ **** (VoiceMag.uk). ‘Filth!’ (Rhod Gilbert). ‘Joyously liberating’ (List). 'Very funny' (Time Out). ‘Hilarious… An excellent comedic work... Unlike any other comedian’ ***** (EdFestMag.com). 'Everyone leaves wishing they were her friend' **** (VoiceMag.uk). 'Dryly innocent' ***** (EastLondonLines.com). 'Surprising edge' **** (ShortCom.co.uk). 'A brilliant show' **** (VoiceMag.uk).

Darren Harriott : Good Heart Yute
Best Newcomer Nominee Darren considers himself a good person. From Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, Don't Hate The Playaz, The Stand Up Sketch Show, Comedy Central's The Comedy Bus and Roast Battle. **** (Evening Standard). 'Passionate, articulate, witty' **** (Sunday Times).**** The Times – “Properly funny.”
