Alice Marshall and Edd Hedges

Ahead of this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, we are delighted to bring you a double-bill of hotly-tipped comedy acts that we think will take this year’s festival by storm.

 

WINNER of Best Comedy Show at Brighton Fringe 2017

This year's show sees Alice Marshall return with more of her signature weird and wonderful characters, and this time they're transporting you all the way to the fifth dimension. Join bold and brassy Hispanic air stewardess Maria - once dubbed 'the angriest woman in the skies' - as she welcomes the audience on-board for their 50-minute non-stop flight straight into the Twilight Zone.

Shortly after 'take off', the audience experience one hell of a lightning strike, and the plane careers through an unknown universe, throwing up a vast array of bizarre and delightful characters along the way. Forget everything you know about air travel - this is a journey with a difference.

★★★★★ The Fountain "One of my favourite shows at this year's fringe.”

★★★★ Funny Women "The mix of beauty and grotesque is compelling, and her characters repel and delight in equal measure.”

★★★★ The Wee Review "Alice Marshall does character comedy at its rawest" 

★★★★★ Short Com | ★★★★ Herald Scotland | ****★★★★ Three Weeks | ****★★★★★**** Broadway Baby

 

In 1988 a teenager lost control of his car. In 2014 a Halloween party took an unexpected turn. In 2017 there was a thunder storm in a small village. Edd Hedges returns following his debut show Wonderland with another unique hour of storytelling.

As seen on BBC Presents and as tour support for Sofie Hagen.

‘Edd Hedges is a joy to watch.’ The Scotsman

Robert Newman’s Total Eclipse of Descartes

In a world gone crazy, can philosophy help? This sparklingly brilliant new show tries to give you the answer.

‘He is the funniest comedian I have ever seen…A passionate, chaotically brilliant comedian.’***Sunday Times*

Rob Newman (*stand up legend, best-selling novelist, Radio 4 Sony Award Winner) *attempts to piece together a philosophy for our troubled times by sifting through 3000 years of thought: from Pythagoras to Artificial Intelligence by way of Pavlov’s dogs, Jane Goodall’s chimpanzees and Frankie Howerd’s trousers.

*‘I am completely in awe of Robert Newman. Of his talent, his passion, his intelligence, and the way he turns them to comedy with real firepower. If this world could be saved by a Superhero whose Superpower was Comedy, that hero would be Robert Newman.’*****  Kate Copstick, Scotsman

Sherlock Gnomes

Sherlock Gnomes
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Stevenson
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Michael Caine

When the gnomes of London go missing, the titular detective (Depp) and his long-suffering sidekick (Ejiofor) go looking for them. Despite vivid animation and a fine voice cast, there’s just not enough story to fuel this hardly-necessary sequel to the lacklustre 2011 original.

Sat 28 Jul

£4–£8 (£6)

Tabby McTat

Tabby McTat the cat is best friends with a guitar-playing busker. When the two are separated, he is sent to a different home and given all the creature comforts a cat would want. But he misses his friend, and begins searching the streets for him. Based off the children's book by Julia Donaldson.

Thu 25 Oct

£11 (£9)

The Wedding Singer

Performing Arts Company

The Wedding Singer takes us back to 1985 when hair was big, collars were up and wedding singers were cool. The sparkling new score does for the ‘80s what Hairspray did for the ‘60s and is the most romantic musical in twenty years. Robbie Hart (a favourite wedding singer) enjoys life until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar.

Please note: Due to adult content, there is a suggested age limit of 14+ for this performance, however this is at parents/guardians discretion.
