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*
