Two superb stand-ups bring their Edinburgh Fringe work-in-progresses to Camden!
STUART GOLDSMITH: THIS IS ACTUALLY MY SIXTH RODEO
Goldsmith swaggers back with all the confidence of a man who has not only helped produce a new baby, but has also managed to write a show that isn’t entirely about the daft little sod.
Well not entirely.
Expect all the usual shaggy-dogs, monkeyshines and frogging about, but this time delivered with a very slightly desperate “this has to work” sheen.
JAMES ACASTER: RESET
James Acaster finds himself with something to look forward to. Something he’s always wanted. Something we all want. Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show nominee 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.* ‘There’s no one better at constructing a show than Acaster’ (Guardian). ‘Comic genius’ (Evening Standard). ‘A bright and unique comedy mind’ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘He really is rewriting the comedy rulebook’ (Time Out). ‘Continues to stun with boundless creativity and technical mastery’ (Scotsman). ‘If Oxford wants to study stand-up in depth, Acaster is a good place to start’ (Sunday Times).*
