Two work-in-progress shows from Fringe bad boys ADAM HESS (Tonight at the Palladium, Live from the BBC) and JORDAN BROOKES (Edinburgh Best Show Nominee 2017).
***ADAM HESS: MY GRANDAD HAS A FRINGE***
The star of Tonight at the Palladium (ITV), Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and Live from the BBC is back with, without doubt, his funniest show yet. Expect a lot of good stand-up comedy and also a story about getting stuck in a lift for 25 hours.
Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee.
'For high quality gags per minute there is no better comedian on the Fringe' **** (Independent)
'A breathless race through some of the Fringe's strongest punchlines' **** (Skinny).
***JORDAN BROOKES: I'VE GOT NOTHING***
No tricks. No gimmicks. No plan. Just an hour in my company as we reach the end. Things will be over soon. We're nearly there everyone! Great work. But before we go, I'm making one last attempt to find connection in the here and now, to snuffle out any remaining joy in this rapidly crumbling world, before it's too late.
