A double bill of Edinburgh comedy previews.
JOSIE LONG: Tender
Three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and very hard to pin down indie-underdog-nightmare Josie Long is back with a new show for the first time in five years. It’s about the mind-bending intensity of new motherhood, but mostly about kindness, gentleness, and joy. All in all, the edgiest thing you will see this Fringe. The aim is for you to come out of it feeling optimistic about the future, although that’s a big ask. At the very least there will be some really silly voices, and that’s not nothing. **** ‘Brilliantly evocative, an original and unflagging spirit’ (Times).
RACHEL FAIRBURN: The People’s Princess
Rachel’s been described by some losers as obnoxious, rude and contrary. However, she thinks she’s absolutely adorable and the natural choice for the dormant title of The People’s Princess. **** (ThreeWeeks). **** (Skinny). **** (One4Review.co.uk).
Doors 7:30pm / Show 7:45pm
