Edinburgh Fringe 2016
Colin Cloud returns with an exposé… of you. He has the wit of a comedian, the intensity of a hypnotist and the allure of Sherlock Holmes himself. A complete sell-out in 2014 and 2015. The show will extend beyond 60 minutes as Colin invites you, the audience, to solve a mystery with him on the streets of Edinburgh. Warning: Do not think about anything you wouldn’t want Colin to know or reveal.
On his misguided quest to follow his dreams, Garrett Millerick got locked in a shipping container by Eminem, directed hip-hop videos for deluded city traders and once made a feature documentary about a ballroom dancer trying to save all the children of Birmingham from certain destruction. This is his story.
Sack off the Olympics and cancel the f*cking Perrier. Join sketch behemoths BEASTS for the only competition that matters this summer. Brace yourselves for an epic battle of intelligence, talent, guile and brawn, where the road to glory is paved with broken friendships and shredded dignity. Who will emerge victorious and be crowned Mr Edinburgh 2016? You decide.
BEASTS have appeared on BBC Three, Comedy Central and BBC Radio 4.
Directed by Tom Parry.
Holywood, Northern Ireland is a small town that produces big names. Shane Todd (star of BBC’s Late Licence and Live at The Sunflower) is miffed that the town council have yet to book him to switch on the Christmas lights. It doesn’t help that fellow hometown heroes Rory McIlroy and Jamie Dornan keep stealing the limelight. So Shane’s gone to the other Hollywood in a bid to keep up with his neighbours. What could possibly go wrong?
Another F*cking Variety Show
Mistress of ceremonies Lili La Scala and her most beloved cabaret reprobates entertain you at this rollicking late-night show. With sell-out runs at the Fringe since 2012, guests are treated to the very best on the international cabaret, burlesque and comedy circuit.
This cabaret spectacular will warm the heart and boggle the mind; previous guests include comedian Jason Manford, The Boy With Tape On His Face and burlesque starlet Vicky Butterfly to name but a few.
Come and feast your eyes upon a veritable variety smorgasbord: comedy, magic, burlesque, music and more.
