Abigoliah Schamaun: Post Coital Confessions & James Loveridge: Funny Because It’s True
Abigoliah Schamaun and James Loveridge bring you a night of comedy and Edinburgh Fringe Previews.
ABIGOLIAH SCHAMUN: POST-COITAL CONFESSIONS
Man. I thought sleeping with you would help me get over Diana. But I feel horrible. Just one of the things said to Abigoliah Schamaun after sex. This NYC comic reflects on her own amorous affairs then asks: what’s the weirdest thing you’ve been told post-coitus? Sometimes it’s bizarre, other times it makes you fall in love. But it’s always interesting and often a bit wrong.
Winner Moth StorySLAM, NYC.
‘A comedy whirl-wind!’ ★★★★★ (ThreeWeeks).
‘Hilarious stories’ ★★★★ (Skinny).
‘Not a run of the mill comic. Draws howls of laughter from the packed house’ ★★★★ (One4Review.co.uk).
JAMES LOVERIDGE: FUNNY BECAUSE IT’S TRUE
An hour of hilarious true stories from an exciting young stand-up comedian/loveable idiot, James Loveridge revamps his 5 star 2014 show. Some new stories, some old, all funny, all true.
‘★★★★★ Loveridge’s timing is exceptional; he knows exactly where in a joke to place the punchline. He often sets up the expectation that he will take the easy route out of a joke, then subverts this expectation to excellent effect… This is undoubtedly the best free show that I have seen at the Fringe’ (BroadwayBaby.com).
30th April, 8pm (Doors open 7:30pm). Tickets: £3.00 https://www.musicglue.com/camden-head/events/30-apr-15-ben-van-der-veldes-blue-plaque-laughs-camden-head/
