Shivani Thussu: Prefer Not to Say
Do you have an opinion? Because we'd love to hear it! Shivani Thussu's debut hour is set in a focus group that goes too far. As seen on Pls Like (BBC). One of Funny Women's Ones to Watch (2018). Directed by award-winning comedian Freya Slipper.
Nathan Roberts: Glowed Up
Glowed Up is an anecdotal anti-romcom from stand-up comedian Nathan Roberts. This is a show for anyone who’s ever fallen in love with the wrong person. Or fallen in love with the right person. Or simply met another human being. (If you’ve never met another human being you’re still welcome, but please sit near the back). Nathan Roberts has written for BBC Radio 4's The Now Show, The News Quiz and Newsjack, and is the 2018 winner of the BBC's prestigious The Felix Dexter bursary.
Heidi Regan: Heidi Kills Time
Silly, surreal show about time travel, love and time travel. Tired of immature ‘I slept with your mum’ jokes? Come see more thoughtful comedy like, ‘Heidi, why have you put on weight?' 'Whenever I travel back in time, have sex with your great grandparents and accidentally become your ancestor, they give me a cookie’. 2018 Fringe sell-out. Winner of BBC New Comedy Award and So You Think You’re Funny. Tour support for Joe Lycett. Writer for Have I Got news For You, star of The Now Show, The Guilty Feminist Podcast and BBC Three.
Pat Cahill: Uncle Len Needs a New Part for His Hoover
Old new act, Pat Cahill, brings another hour of his confused neo-music hall stupidity to the Fringe. Expect earworms, knee ants and eye mice as he gently impresses you in the afternoon with a bit of singing, a bit of stand-up and a bit of dancing. It will all mean something, but you’ll have to work that out. 'Wonderfully weird' (Guardian). 'A near perfect absurdist hour' ★★★★ (EdFestMag.com). ★★★★ (List).
Johnny White Really-Really
When I was a child, I tried out having an imaginary friend for one afternoon. We went to the park, myself and my imaginary friend, and played chasing games. But soon enough I tired of their company — they were really boring! And so I left them there in the park and came home alone. If you're ever in the park, say hello from me. But enough about all that! Come and see my brand new show, Unending Torment! 'Watching this show is like having a very good dream' (Liam Williams).
Siblings: The Siblinginging
Following last year's sell-out show, character comedians and IRL sisters Maddy and Marina are back and bigger than ever (at least physically). This August will see them squeeze their genes (and jeans) into the auld heffer. Expect Gaulier-trained clowning from Maddy, intensely serious acting from Marina and a whole closet full of family secrets. Don't forget to bring a box of tissues! (Material is suitable for anyone who has, or has seen a sister). 'Totally absurd' ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Outrageous ridiculous character comedy' **** (ScotsGay.co.uk). 'Rising Stars of British Comedy' (Mail on Sunday).
