Andrew O’Neill

SHOW INFORMATION

Andrew O’Neill’s Black Magick Fun Hour

Magick works. In really annoying ways. In February 2015 Andrew O’Neill Is Trapped Down A Well was nominated for Best show at the Leicester Comedy Festival, and the subsequent tour won acclaim in several countries (3). O’Neill was looking forward to polishing it up ready for the Edinburgh Fringe.  After an intense invocation of Thoth/Hermes/Mercury, the trickster god responsible for the spoken word, a WhatsApp message arrived from a friend currently working at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival informing Andrew of the show Nic Sampson Has Fallen Down A Well.

Taking this coincidence as an enormous magickal kick up the arse, (and a sign that the show idea wasn’t as original as he’d hoped), O’Neill presents a much more interesting show about magick, coincidence, and originality, with all the best jokes of that other show crudely crowbared in! Hooray!

SHOW INFORMATION

John Kearns & Spencer Jones: Double Bill

John Kearns: Work In Progress

The absurdist stand up comic and first ever winner of the Edinburgh Foster’s Best Newcomer and Best Show Awards previews his latest work in progress.

‘A true comedy original’ Time Out

‘Kearns could be your new King of Comedy’ Evening Standard

‘Heading for the comedy stratosphere… you’re in the hands of a master’ The Guardian, 2016

Spencer Jones: The Audition (Work in progress)

This work in progress show is the very start of an idea I have about doing a kind of play. But with routines with in it.  So there will be props and music. Don’t worry. I’m 88% sure I haven’t disappeared up my own arse.  There will be a story.  All set in a bedsit. A story about a man (me) playing a man (Herbert) who is worried about an audition (Job interviews for dickheads). So that’s the big idea. I’ve no idea how it will pan out. So make sure there’s nothing else on at the same time you fancy seeing. Lots of love Spencer xxx  As seen on Live At The Apollo (BBC Two), Sky’s Spencer Jones’ Christmas, BBC Three’s Uncle, and BBC One’s Upstart Crow  “There are officially 1,170 comedy shows in this year’s Fringe, and countless more not in the programme. But there is only one like Spencer Jones’s.” ✭✭✭✭1/2 (4.5 stars) Chortle “No other Fringe show will put a bigger smile on your face” ✭✭✭✭ Evening Standard  “Eggy Bagel is an hour of joyful, inoffensive silliness which could tickle the coldest of hearts.” ✭✭✭✭ The Skinny “Only those with the stoniest of hearts could fail to fall for The Herbert.” ✭✭✭✭ The List

Jayde Adams & Brennen Reece

SHOW INFORMATION

Jayde Adams & Brennen Reece: Double Bill

Jayde Adams: Work In Progress

Jayde Adams is “the future of British comedy” (Diva Magazine) “Britain’s funniest woman comic” (The Daily Mail) and “A fearless force of nature” (The Independent). Jayde won the prestigious Funny Women award in 2014, a London Cabaret Award in 2013, was nominated in 2013 as The Hospital Club’s Top100 People in The Arts and in 2016 was nominated for the lastminute.com Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer Award for her sell out, multiple 5 star achieving, debut show, which also went on to sellout at the Soho Theatre.

After appearances in 8 out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, BBC2’s Gert Lush Christmas with Russell Howard, Sky1’s Sick Note with Nick Frost and Rupert Grint, and Channel 5’s Borderline, it’s safe to say that when Dawn French says “Jayde Adams is the 3rd funniest woman in the world. Fact,” she might just be onto something.

Join the Edinburgh Fringe’s favourite housewife, Barbara Nice for a playful life-affirming show for all the family including the chance to win a prize off Barbara’s table. It’s an evening of proper good fun! Entrance price includes a complimentary raffle ticket!

The star of her own BBC Radio 2 sitcom and with her enviable track record of garnering five star reviews and sell-out shows, Barbara will put a smile on your face and a spring in your step with this new show about chance and luck.

Mrs. Barbara Nice is a much loved mother of Five from Stockport who believes in bargains and getting the most out of life –Ergonomically correct she doesn’t drive and travels the country by National Express coach –her husband knows nothing of her burgeoning comedy career –he thinks she’s either at Bingo or dog sitting.

Best described as a force of nature –she energetically cajoles the audience to take part in her hare-brained stunts and injecting an unbeatable air of fun and excitement into the room.

She has been compared to Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Merton, Janis Joplin … and that woman from the Shake `n` Vac adverts!
