Join STEVE BUGEJA and ELEANOR TIERMAN as they test their brand new shows ahead of the Edinburgh Fringe.
Steve Bugeja: Single Mum
Steve helped his single mum find her Prince Charming all while learning his times tables. (He was seven). The host of Radio 4’s Economics with Subtitles returns following four critically-acclaimed shows. As seen on The Russell Howard Hour (Sky One), The Zoe Ball Show (ITV1), Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), Love Island Aftersun (ITV2) and Comedy Up Late (ABC TV) at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. 'Steve's a charming, likeable stand-up with a set packed with gags' (Sunday Post). 'An eye for comics detail that's all his own' (Guardian). 'Plentiful jokes and compelling storytelling' (Scotsman).
Eleanor Tiernan: Enjoying the Spotlight Responsibly
Curled in up bed, Eleanor binge-watches true crime, completely insulated from the actual crime outside her door. The gap between what she could be doing and what she is doing has never been bigger. But her smartphone is about to be stolen and then she'll find that the real world can mock us far more savagely than any online fantasy. Join Tiernan (BBC Newsquiz, Alternative Comedy Experience) in an exploration of what, if any, satisfaction can be found and whether she's willing to endure the requisite amount of discomfort to get it.
