The Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee (Best Show 2017) presents her one-woman musical about the economy. You read that right. Let’s get fiscal. The queen of clown is back and she’s making the dismal science fun with a whole orchestra and an Invisible Hand. BBC New Talent Hotlist 2017. Fringe World Best Comedy Show 2018 nominee. British Vogue’s ’20 Names of Now’. ‘A fast talking, smart-thinking stand-up for whom the adjective ‘kooky’ could have been invented for’ (Guardian). ‘Hysterical tour de force’ ***** (ThreeWeeks). ‘A fantastic comedic success’ **** (Fest). **** (Scotsman).
4pm – LLOYD LANGFORD: WHY THE BIG FACE? (WIP)
A brand-new stand-up show from one of the biggest faces in comedy. May contain jokes about balconies, terror, acid and robins. An early version of this show won the Best Show Award at the 2018 Leicester Comedy Festival. As seen on QI (BBC Two), winner of Celebrity Mastermind (BBC One), as heard on The Unbelievable Truth and The News Quiz (BBC Radio 4) and regular co-host on the Rhod Gilbert Show (BBC Radio Wales). ‘A collection of absolutely top-class standalone jokes’ (Guardian).
5pm – PRESIDENT OBONJO (WIP)
In the age of Trump, populism and Brexit, the world probably doesn’t need another bloated ego pretending to give easy solutions. Thankfully, what we need is a comedy character who skewers them with precision, hilarity and who isn’t afraid at showing vulnerability. President Obonjo leads a Comedy Revolution.
