ED PATRICK: JUNIOR OPTIMIST – work in progress
Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year finalist 2016 and Paramount Funniest Student finalist Ed Patrick is both comedian and junior doctor. He makes his hotly anticipated debut show this year which follows his first-hand experiences, challenges and occasional blind panic working for the much loved but troubled NHS.
‘If I were him I’d quit medicine and do stand-up’ (Bruce Dessau)
‘Masterful, playfully provocative writing’ (Chortle.co.uk).
RHYS JAMES FORGIVES – work in progress
Don’t worry about it. Honestly, it’s fine. Just get a ticket to see Rhys James bash out another hour of splash-hit, classic stand-up and definitely cool and not pretentious poetry and all will be forgiven.
