A double bill of Edinburgh comedy previews.
JONNY & THE BAPTISTS Love Edinburgh and Hate Bastards
We live in a divided world and we want to cross that divide. But how can we be popular now ‘populist’ means ‘I’m a shit’? Answer: we love everyone. Oh, except bastards. Everyone hates bastards, right? We agree.
Multi-award nominated* musical-activist-comedians, Jonny & The Baptists, are sick of being political and divisive. This show is about how everything is definitely fine. Let’s just get along!
‘Excellent’ **** (Guardian)
‘Wickedly funny’ **** (Times)
‘Lovely’ **** (Scotsman)
‘Superbly crafted’ **** (Metro)
‘Disgraceful’ *** (Telegraph)… (bastards)
*We’ve lost five times, won no times.
ANNIE McGRATH: Shepherd
Deadpan comic Annie McGrath returns with her third stand-up show. Dark and charmingly offbeat, Annie tackles issues of male toxicity, consent and sheep herding. The big three! Dry jokes, silly anecdotes and some potentially serious underlying themes, from a young (ish) comedian cynical beyond her years.
Directed by Steve Hall (We Are Klang, The Russell Howard Hour). As seen on ITV2, BBC3, Channel 4 and Sky Sports.
‘Smart and smutty’ (London Evening Standard)
‘Hilarious’ ***** (Edfringe Review)
‘Spot on comic timing… delightfully dark’ **** (ThreeWeeks)
‘Ridiculously funny’ **** (Edinburgh Reporter)
