A SUPERB DOUBLE BILL OF EDINBURGH PREVIEWS FEATURING PIERRE NOVELLIE & SEAN McLOUGHLIN
PIERRE NOVELLIE: IS ANXIOUS PETER
At last! The combination of early medieval Norse history and observational comedy the masses have been praying for. Anxiety has informed this year’s offering – sufferers are particularly welcome to attend. Let’s all laugh at it for heaven’s sake. This show will feature an appearance from Chinese Christ. You might recognise Pierre from BBC Three, 4OD or if you had a child in South Africa between 1992-1998. (This is explained in the show.) ‘The dawn of a major talent’ (Guardian). ‘One to watch’ (Time Out).
Another calamitous year. Another hour of blisteringly funny stand-up from a man ‘on the cusp of far greater recognition’ (List). ‘The best comedian you haven’t heard of yet’ (Mark Watson, Time Out). ‘At once hilarious and painfully revelatory’ ★★★★ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘The stand-out stand-up’ (Evening Standard). ‘What a genuinely fresh and powerful voice… It is wonderful’ (Scotsman). ‘Sean McLoughlin has “it” and is more than willing to continuously punch it in the face’ (Doc Brown). Nominated by fellow comedians for the Best Performer Barry Award, Edinburgh Fringe 2014. Tour support for Katherine Ryan and Doc Brown.
