Erich McElroy Tops Trump
It’s pretty hard to top the most controversial figure in modern political history but American-born, British-based comic McElroy has stacked the deck. He’s got all the alternative truth, the fakest news and is gonna make the Fringe great again. This is comedy that grabs you – by the funny bone. Heard on BBC Radio Scotland’s Breaking the News and BBC Radio 4’s Moral Maze. Seen on BBC Breakfast, Good Morning Britain, Sky News. ‘Well worth it, even if you’re not in the least bit political’ (Scotsman). ‘This is political stand-up comedy at its best’ ***** (BroadwayBaby).
Leo Kearse: I Can Make You a Tory
Sick of sanctimonious lefties lecturing you about global warming, Jeremy Corbyn and sexism? Award-winning comedian Leo Kearse slaughters these sacred cows with razor sharp wit and shows that it’s right to be right wing. You’ll leave the show a fan of nuclear power, capitalism and voting Tory! ‘A giant of the art’ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Kearse is seriously good. Quick, funny, smart and to the point… hilarious’ (Scotsman). ‘Very funny, occasionally shocking but edgily likeable and happily endearing’ **** (List). Warning: not for the easily offended.
