A double bill of Edinburgh comedy previews.
NB: The previously-billed Tony Law has to spend some time in Canada for family reasons, so will not be appearing at the Caroline. In his place we have the award-winning hero of “anti-comedy”, Edward Aczel.
EDWARD ACZEL: Artificial Intellect
Ed promises to come up with a big idea to hang the whole thing on – but probably it’ll be based on a loose set of unconnected themes with no real purpose. There’ll be a demonstration of Ed’s acting skills, the odd political impression and the apocalypse included in the standard package. An unsatisfying experience to both perform and watch. But then… all things must pass. **** ‘A master of his genre’ (Kate Copstick, Scotsman). **** ‘Deliberate and expertly done’ (Claire Smith, Scotsman). **** ‘Deadpan dynamo’ (Mirror).
STUART LAWS is All In
Acclaimed stand-up (and the UK’s foremost gilet apologist) Stuart Laws reflects on the day his life changed forever when he risked everything in a Vegas poker tournament. A show about making difficult decisions, choosing different paths and gettin’ jiggy wit’ it. Stuart has appeared on BBC Radio 4, produced James Acaster’s Netflix specials and his live reporting of a dirty plates war became one of the most talked about Twitter threads of the year. ‘You’ll struggle to find a comedian with a better jokes per minute rate… A one-man episode of Arrested Development’ **** (Fest).
