Two Edinburgh Fringe Previews for just £10!
Show 1 - Simon Caine - Every Room Becomes a Panic Room When You Over Think Enough.
Comedian Simon Caine is going to Edinburgh 2019 with a new show. In order to do that, he needs to try out his new jokes on you, YES you.
In this latest show Simon looks at his relationship with happiness and social media and how they don't work together with "Quick one-liners [that] rub shoulders with more involved material that rewards you paying full attention" (The Wee Review) and "[his] eccentric turns of phrase and paranoid persona is immediately entertaining, and his tales of irrational exaggeration are simultaneously relatable"(Broadway Baby).
I've come close to winning 4 national comedy awards (semi-finalist), done over 1,300 gigs and toured the UK three times...if you like hilarious storytelling, witty one-liners and structured narrative-led comedy, this is the show for you.
Quotes from industry / comedians / writers about Simon -
“You’re a more authentic John Oliver” - comedian Doug Stanhope
“That was awesome. I liked it… I don’t know why. But it was great. I’ll have you back” – Mike Manera (Piccadilly Comedy Club)
“What you’re doing is great… the problem is nobody understands it.” – Iain Coyle (Dave TV Comedy Commissioner)
“This is one of the few comedians to make me howl with laughter this year…” – comedian Adam Bloom
Show 2 - Josh McAuley: Pretty, Handsome, Awkward
Josh McAuley is Manchester's premiere epileptic, partially deaf, bipolar, gay comedian. Unfortunately this all became obvious too late to be interesting as a teenager. Mental health issues were all the rage as an emo, as an adult it just makes holding down a job difficult. Join the man behind Gloria Hole for an evening of reminiscing, giggling and occasionally regretting.
