SARAH BENNETTO/JONATHAN HEARN

SARAH BENNETTO & JONATHAN HEARN: DOUBLE BILL OF EDINBURGH FRINGE SHOWS! 

Time: 19:30 (doors open 19:00). Tickets: FREE! (donations at the back). 

Not one but two Edinburgh Fringe shows on tonight! Sarah Bennetto’s stand up and characters followed by Jonathan Hearn’s self-deprecating solo show.

**SARAH BENNETTO FRITTERS AWAY AN HOUR OF YOUR LIFE…MMM, FRITTERS**
A new stand-up and character solo show by the London-based Melbourne comedian and host of Storytellers’ Club. *‘Self-deprecating, dark, honest and genuinely funny. One of the most enjoyable and original shows I’ve seen this year. It had me laughing out loud more times than I could count. A solid hour of laughs, it culminates in a truly epic finale’ ★★★★.5 (Advertiser, Adelaide). ‘A sophisticated mix of stand-up and character comedy, Bennetto succeeds in harnessing the full power of an instinctive comedic mind’ ★★★★ (Fest, Edinburgh). ★★★★ (RipItUp.com.au).*

**JONATHAN HEARN: ALWAYS JON, NEVER JOFF**
Jonathan Hearn has been performing stand-up comedy for nearly 6 years. At the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe he performed his first solo show, and everyone who saw it smiled and laughed – one of them even said “It was better than the Marcus Brigstocke show we saw just before it”. This is even better.

*”plenty of charisma, and a glint of silliness” – Steve Bennett, Chortle

“Jonathan Hearn’s bricolage of comic fancies had me laughing from start to finish. One of the silliest, funniest, inventivest hours of nit-wittery I’ve seen.” – Trevor Lock

“Old-school meets weird school. Jonathan Hearn is hilarious.” – David Mills

“Hearn has an unconventional but intelligent style.” – Katie Chapman, Three Weeks

“Jon has a tightness and sleekness to his act. Carefully constructed jokes and unbreakable professionalism in any situation.” – Poppy Hillstead, The Proud Archivist

“Very clever wordplay.” – The LP Project

“87% of the time [his] hair looks amazing.” – Jen Wells*

EDFRINGE PREVIEWS!

A fantastic double bill of Edinburgh Fringe previews from David Mills & Jonathan Hearn.

DAVID MILLS: DON’T GET ANY IDEAS
Free. Focus people! David Mills is back with brand new, razor sharp rants delivered with signature cocktail swagger and a biting, acerbic wit. Hilarious tirades covering celebrity pop culture, ISIS, politicians, and London life. Mills gleefully ‘skewers sacred cows with a droll precision’ (Fest). Like a mash-up of Dave Allen and US political satirist and Letterman successor Stephen Colbert. Expect a smart hour of spikey comedy and irreverent commentary for grown-ups. ‘A class act. David Mills is heading for the big time’ (Time Out). ‘Devilishly charming’ (Chortle.co.uk).

JONATHAN HEARN: ALWAYS JON, NEVER JOFF
Following a sold out show at The Proud Archivist earlier this year, Jonathan Hearn further enhances his solo stand-up show – previously titled Jonathan Hearn’s Bits – for the Camden Fringe 2015.
Expect red wine, jokes, wildly inaccurate stories, puppetry, a few ditties, a short play and a measure of brandy.
