Get yourself up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to check out some fantastic shows! In amongst the Earache talent, make sure you see…
Ellie Taylor: Infidelliety – Star of Mock the Week, The John Bishop Show and Snog Marry Avoid gets to grips with that pesky bit of marriage known as monogamy. ‘Radiates natural charisma… blessed with great flair’ (Guardian). ‘Frequently hilarious’ (Metro). ‘Smart, self mocking and telegenic – it’s hard to see what’s going to get in Taylor’s way’ (Scotsman).
Joey Page: Jowie – Silly, imaginative, stupid and more stupid, blah, blah, blah and more blah. Come on in, the water is fine and there is a slide. One lady in Australia said I am the best comedian she has ever seen. My mum thinks I am handsome and my girlfriend thinks I deserve a break. ‘Page is now destined to become a leading name in British cult comedy’ ***** (ThreeWeeks). ‘Fans of the surreal and ridiculous will love this’ **** (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Joey Page is a super idiot’ (Sam Simmons). ‘He has a head like a fantasy hand grenade’ (Noel Fielding).
Lucy Porter: Consequences – A brand new stand-up show from the perennial Fringe favourite who’s also a regular on TV and radio (QI, Mock the Week, The News Quiz). Lucy’s festival shows are always sell-out hits and 2016 promises to be no exception. This is a heartfelt and hilarious hour of personal revelation and political observation. Lucy will cover some or all of the following: censorship, generational conflict, theological ethics, home-brewing, quizzing, Britpop of the 1990s, falconry and Gary Wilmot. Book early! ‘Impeccably punch lined anecdotes… Genuinely delightful’ **** (Telegraph). ‘A treat from start to finish’ ***** (Herald).
Justin Moorhouse: People and Feelings – From Live at the Apollo and Radio 5′s Fighting Talk. A little slimmer but still as ‘belly laugh funny’ (Manchester Evening News), everyone’s favourite northern charmer is back and better than ever. After touring last year’s show, of which the Guardian said ‘the amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his deceptively simple routines is worthy of admiration’ he’s had a think about people, and feelings. About people Justin knows, their feelings and how he feels about them. And they about him. It’ll be a (very) funny show. Promise.
