An awesome double bill of Edinburgh preview shows from two hilarious comedians Ian Smith (‘fantastically funny’ The Times) & Chris Betts (‘properly hilarious’ Whats On London).

IAN SMITH: Whereabouts
Award-winning comedian Ian Smith (BBC1’s The Ark, BBC3’s Sweat the Small Stuff)returns with his third hour. It’s about whereabouts things are and whatabouts they’re doing there. While others sleep, Ian is knocking back 35p energy drinks and searching for the answers. Big Smiddy’s back with another hour of stories, talking and attempts at theatre. It’ll be a lot of fun.

CHRIS BETTS: Social Animal
Edinburgh Debut; Chris Betts loves to watch people, and his favourite view is from behind the bar. Betts has studied mankind at our watering holes and come back hopeful. Think Jane Goodall polishing glasses!

Comedy Reserve 2014, NATYs finalist 2015, Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year finalist 2014.
‘Canadian Chris Betts has a confident style and a solid set… a glint of steelier edge’ Chortle
‘an enticing prospect, a Canadian who deals in off-kilter thoughts sharpened by the occasional prod at taboo topics’ The Independent
