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.

Rosie Jones: Backward
After a successful sell-out debut hour at last year's Edinburgh Fringe, Rosie 'triple threat' Jones returns with a brand new show, exploring what it's like to be the world's first, and only, disabled, gay, northern comedian with a phobia of cotton wool and a lethal amount of Creme Eggs in her wardrobe.

Michael Odewale is selfish. And apathetic. And so are you. Join the fast-rising star as he tries to figure out what matters, and what's just noise, in his highly anticipated debut show. A fresh new voice known for delivering sharp, slick and beautifully executed stand-up, Odewale is set to take the comedy world by storm. Winner Best New Show Leicester Comedy Festival 2019.

Paul F Taylor: Odd Paul
Disappear down the rabbit hole of a fool’s mind. Marvel at imaginative, logic-defying, left-field ideas spoken from an award-winning comedians mouth! 'An enticing, dizzying prospect, who whips through a welter of daft, Harry Hill-like ideas and diversions and chucks characters around with the agility of the Pajama Men' (Independent). 'An impressive knack for both observational wit and quirky flights of fancy' (Evening Standard). 'Eclectic mix of proper gags, gleeful flights of fancy and enjoyable awkwardness' (

Yuriko Kotani: Somosomo

Eleanor Tiernan: Enjoying the Spotlight Responsibly
In bed gorging on true crime while outside actual crime fails to tantalise? Just one more episode I swear! The gap between what we are doing and what we should be doing? Never been bigger. But Eleanor's smartphone is missing so batten down the hatches, there's a storm a-coming. Who knew the future would be this stupid? This year Tiernan (BBC Radio 4 Newsquiz, Comedy Central's Alternative Comedy Experience) returns with a show that aims to spark your joy and then throw petrol on it. 'Amiably acerbic' (Stewart Lee). 'Funny, fanciful and fearless' (Graham Norton).Appeared on RTE’s The Liffey Laughs and BBC’s One Night Stand.
