Two super dudes bring their Edinburgh Fringe solo shows here.
ANIL DESAI: IMPRESSIONS OF A HINDUDE
The stand-up chameleon and international movie star impressionist brings his new, funny-loaded, fast-faced, friendly and philosophising comedy show to Edinburgh – for free! ‘Incredible… Extraordinary… Stunning’ ★★★★ (Pun). ‘A possessed schizophrenic tour de force … more than an impressionist’ ★★★★ (Hairline.org.uk).
ARCHIE MADDOCKS: AIN’T GOT NO BEHAVIOUR
Ain’t got no behaviour! That’s the accusation Archie has had shouted at him his whole life. Join this exciting and award-winning comedian for 45 minutes of astute observations and stories of his own ineptitude, where he attempts to figure out where he stands in the world. And why he still Ain’t Got No Behaviour. Amused Moose Laugh Off runner-up 2014. ‘Surely destined to rise through the ranks in the next few years … If he can keep coming up with gems like that, the sky is the limit’ (Bruce Dessau, BeyondTheJoke.co.uk and Evening Standard).
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.
