This is the day during the Tringe when I throw all caution to the wind, crash an extrordinary amount of the budget on the most wonderful line up. To any comedy lover, this is simply the best bargain, even if you only attend a couple of the shows but especially if you watch all nine. You'll normally find me on my phone trying to find out when the next comedian is going to arrive.

Earn 10 points for each ticket purchased.

jess-robinson.jpgJESS ROBINSON: UNRAVELLED

Multi award-winning Jess Robinson returns with more spot-on celebrity impressions, musical comedy and stunning vocal gymnastics. Like a wonderfully malfunctioning jukebox, Jess and her incredible band take you on a dizzying journey through hilarious improvised musical mash-ups, serving a feast of styles and genres from Billie Holiday and Liza Minnelli to Iggy Azalea, Beyoncé and Kate Bush.

‘No matter what your tastes this Fringe... Robinson will entertain them all’ ***** (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine). Arts Award Voice Award 2015/16, Amused Moose Peoples Champion Award 2015, Mervyn Stutter – Pick of the Fringe Award 2015, Chortle Award nominee 2014.

MiloMcCabeED16Pic.jpgMILO MCCABE: THE TALENTED MR HAWKE

Poundland’s plastic communism, the nefarious get rich quick allure of the Bingo, the empty capitalistic promise of The Waitrose and more come under the inscrutable eye of the Hawke!

As well as performing at all leading UK comedy venues, the world according to Troy has been spreading frenziedly on the internet and he even has his own series on the Beano channel - whacko!

'‘Undeniably funny’ Chortle****  'Mad comic genius’ Scotsman, ‘Perfectly written jokes…funny and thoughtful' Broadway Baby,  ‘One of the year’s best comedy acts…will outgrow his venue in no time’ Edfest Mag ****

Tom Allen.jpgTOM ALLEN: ABSOLUTELY

As seen on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Live at the Apollo, The Great British Bake Off’s Extra Slice, The John Bishop Show, Virtually Famous, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala at the O2 and heard on Radio 4’s Just a Minute.

In the last year Tom has supported Sarah Millican around the world, sold out his Edinburgh and London runs and even passed his driving test!

‘riotous stuff, perfectly delivered’**** Scotsman; ‘well-crafted, Saturday-night light entertainment’**** List; ‘wit as sharp as his fashion sense’**** Ed Fest; ‘Tom Allen is a showman’**** Three Weeks   

Nigel Ng.jpgNigel Ng: This Chalk Outline is Terrible Fengshui

Nigel Ng is a Malaysian comic who won Amused Moose Laugh Off in 2016. He is now based in the UK, and can be seen performing in comedy clubs all over the country.

Come listen to him perform an hour of jokes about Malaysia, the UK, and how clean the tap water is around these parts.

‘Natural funnybones… as slick as they come’ Chortle

‘plenty of good lines… keen observer’ – Bruce Dessau

 

RHYS_JAMES_Matt Crockett 3.jpgRHYS JAMES: WISEBOY

Well, well, well. If it isn't Rhys James, the guy who said comedy shows are for losers and blurbs are for idiots. Back here with another comedy show, as explained in this blurb.

Unbelievable. As seen on Mock the Week, Russell Howard's Stand Up Central and Virtually Famous.

‘A cut above his humdrum peers’ **** (Independent). ‘Sickeningly talented’ **** (Time Out). ‘Physically unimpressive’ **** (Scotsman). ‘A frighteningly good stand-up comedian...

I think he could be really huge’ (Doc Brown Guardian). One of the best reviewed comedy shows of 2016.

Jenny Collier by Alexis Dubus 811A4821-2 (1).jpgJenny Collier: Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Jen

Following the success of last year's show, '***** Hilarious...An excellent comedic work' (Edfest Mag) and '**** Brilliant...Everyone leaves wishing they were her friend' (Arts Award Voice), Jenny is returning with a brand new hour of stand up comedy. Amongst other things it covers experimenting with body hair, thinking about becoming a vegetarian, reclaiming the word ‘spinster’ and STI themed cocktails. She’s Welsh, what do you expect?

Previous audience feedback includes “I was crying with laughter” and “Finally someone else understands”.

 

Jarred Christmas.jpgJarred Christmas

Jarred Christmas has a unique style that deftly mixes gags with storytelling. He has a dynamic onstage persona and the ability to improvise and roll with anything that's thrown his way, making his comedy sizzle with originality.

Full of passion and charisma, Jarred takes the audience on a hilarious thrill ride of laughs and gasps with an edge of anger that manifests itself in his incredible rants against the small things in our lives.

His confidence leaves the audience secure in the knowledge that they are in capable hands. His material is strong and distinctive, drawn from life experience and random happenings.

Mitch Benn DFTR#2.jpgMITCH BENN: I'M STILL HERE

Congratulations! It's 2017 and you're still here! So is Mitch, ("the country's leading musical satirist" Times)  looking backwards, forwards and sideways trying to make the world a better place, one silly song at a time.

Join him as he looks back over what for the lack of a better word he still refers to as his "career" and ponders where he - and indeed all of us - might be going next. 

'A seriously talented laugh-maker, musician and satirist. Mitch Benn should be more widely known and appreciated. He’s Britain’s answer to Tom Lehrer' The Swindonian

Hardeep Singh Kohli.jpgHardeep Singh Kohli: Alternative, Fact

The BBC Radio 4 favourite, BAFTA winner and regular on BBC's Question Time, This Week and Daily Politics, brings a brand new hour to the Fringe, giving his unique take on the political climate combined with his trademark 'quick witted patter' **** (Skinny).

'Something quite special... Inbetween the laughter are stories of genuine power' ***** (BroadwayBaby.com).

'Immensely funny' (Daily Express).
