Mark Watson: I Appreciate You Coming to This and Let's Hope for the Best (Work in Progress)
Watson presents a show that’s no more than 50% ready for public consumption and hopes for the festival’s legendary supportive vibe to carry him through. 'Unlike anything else I’ve seen in almost 20 years of covering the Fringe… Witty, warm, perfectly judged' ***** (Telegraph). 'This is a stand-up operating at the very top of his game' **** (Independent). 'Always displays an innate understanding of what the audience wants' **** (Chortle). 'A quick-fire hour of fun' **** (Metro).

Hal Cruttenden- Chubster

Last year’s smash hit show is back (and slightly updated) by popular demand. Hal has literally filled our screens on such shows as Have I Got News For You, Live At The Apollo, The Apprentice: You’re Fired and Bake Off: Extra Slice. His daughters chose the title of the show and he’s still on a diet… Limited run. 'The funniest he’s ever been' **** (Times). 'On top form' ***** (Edinburgh Evening News). 'He had the audience in stitches' ***** (Daily Record). 'His finest hour to date' **** (Telegraph).
