Joe Lycett + Stuart Goldsmith + Julian Deane: Edinburgh Previews
March 18, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
JOE LYCETT: WORK IN PROGRESS
Join award-winning sparky stand up Joe Lycett as he workshops material for his new hour show. Expect it to be rough round the edges, interactive, potentially slightly awkward, but most of all BLOODY GOOD FUN. His 2012 show got nominated for Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer so it can’t be all bad. As seen on Live at the Apollo, 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown and Buzzcocks. ‘Imaginative and cheekily subversive comedy … Entertainingly mischievous’ (Guardian). ‘A delightfully natural style that builds a real connection with the audience … an accomplished storyteller’ (Chortle).
STUART GOLDSMITH: WORK IN PROGRESS
New Zealand International Comedy Festival Award winner 2013/14, Quadruple Chortle Award nominee and podsmith returns with some more made-up stuff that at the time of writing is still just happy molecules. By the time you see it though, oh boy will it be three fifths ready to fly!
“Expert stand-up” (Sunday Times).
“Sets up and knocks down gag after gag, garnering huge laughs” (Chortle). Malcolm Hardee Award Winner. “Wonderfully funny” (Time Out). “Not one single dull moment” (Scotsman).
JULIAN DEANE: WORK IN PROGRESS
Julian Deane continues to wow audiences across the country with his genius punch lines and perfect delivery, so expect nothing less as Julian presents his brand new hilarious hour (with some rough around the edges bits). As well as a consummate live performer, the So You Think You’re Funny semi-finalist, Laughing Horse New Act of the Year, Comedy Cafe Best New Act of the Year and King Gong is also in big demand as a writer on shows such as Mock the Week, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Morgan Spurlock’s New Britannia, to name a few.
‘Deliciously twisted… a stream of seriously good gags… quick, sharply written and endlessly repeatable lines’ The Guardian. ‘It’s just a matter of time before Julian Deane gets a boost up the comedy rankings… His trick is to make you think you’re watching standard stand-up fare, then twisting expectations with sharp, original punchlines’ The Independent.
