EDFRINGE PREVIEWS: ESHAAN AKBAR + GUEST

Two Edinburgh Fringe previews for the price of one (well it’s Pay What You Want so kinda!):

ESHAAN AKBAR Following his sell-out run in 2017, Akbar returns armed with a copy of the Quran in hand. It’s a much funnier book than people give it credit for. And Akbar’s own journey tells him that faith still has a place in modern society. ‘Genius stand-up comedy’ (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine)

EDFRINGE PREVIEWS: SARA BARRON & LOU SANDERS

One night. Two shows.

SARA BARRON: FOR WORSE (work in progress) ‘Queen of New York’s live storytelling scene” (Jon Ronson) and host of U.S. storytelling show, The Moth, Sara Barron’s debut standup hour skewers her husband, her child, Whats App, herself, and, notably, a tweenage sex script she wrote way back in 1992.

“Darkly humorous; smart; acerbic” – Bust Magazine

LOU SANDERS: SHAME PIG Yes big topics are discussed (her labia for one), but also shame, sobriety and unrequested sex. Sanders has been a mucky little pig and now she’s rolling around in her own filth for your delight.

NATHAN CASSIDY: If I caused the financial crash of 2008 (preview)

TICKETS: PWYW

Award-winning comedian Nathan Cassidy’s explosive new show. Ex-banker Cassidy exposes the secrets behind the 2008 financial crash. It was all down to him. If he did it.

‘Such a safe pair of hands… here he ambitiously suggests he might have been responsible for the 2008 financial crash. There’s a smart mischief to the material, while his piercingly sarcastic jibes at better-paid entertainers have a touch of the Stewart Lee to them’ Chortle Oct 2017
