PAUL SINHA + LAURA LEXX
Jun 11 @ 7:30pm – 10:00pm

A double bill of Edinburgh comedy previews.

PAUL SINHA: Hazy Little Thing Called Love
Thus far, Paul has lived his life content in the understanding that stability and emotional happiness were lovely ideas but not really for him. Nonetheless, several decades of cheerfully bearing boozy witness to the narratives of others can slowly change a man. And so can a prosecco-fuelled Christmas. ‘This is what a good stand-up should be. Hilariously funny, passionate and articulate’ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Full of insight and delight. One of our most thoughtful and enjoyable comedians’ (Times). ‘Comedy gold. Every punchline feels fresh’ (Skinny).

LAURA LEXX: Knee Jerk
Star of Live at the Apollo, Laura Lexx is a ‘bouncy, bubbly stand up star’ (Telegraph) shining a hilarious light on how hard it is to be a good person these days. Can you change the world without offending anyone? Her sell-out 2018 show Trying was ‘a masterpiece’ ***** (VoiceMag.uk) and earned her a prestigious Comedian’s Choice Award. Now, Lexx takes on society’s big issues… but come for jokes, not answers. It’s sure to be ‘stomach-achingly funny’ **** (Entertainment-Focus.com) and ‘another skilfully-constructed hour from an underrated performer’ **** (Fest). Early booking recommended.

Doors 7:30pm / Show 7:45pm

JEN BRISTER + SARA BARRON
Jun 25 @ 7:30pm – 10:00pm

A double bill of Edinburgh comedy previews.

JEN BRISTER: Under Privilege
Brister has it all: a wife, kids, a house and a job she loves (sometimes) so what the hell is she moaning about? Join Jen as she takes an irreverent look at the often controversial subject of ‘privilege’. Who has it? Who doesn’t? And why does no one like to admit they have any? ‘A powerhouse performance’ ****½ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘A big dose of double up funny’ ***** (DeadLinenews.co.uk). ‘Glorious raging’ **** (BroadwayBaby.com). ‘Brister uses anger to quite stunning comedic effect’ ***** (Skinny). ‘Blisteringly funny’ **** (List).

SARA BARRON: Enemies Closer
2018 Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer nominee, Sara returns to the Fringe following her five-star debut hour and two sell-out runs at London’s Soho Theatre. Her stunning new show examines kindness, meanness, ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, current husbands, all four of her remaining friends, and two of her twelve enemies. ‘An excellent line in cynicism about sex, life and friendship’ (Evening Standard). ‘Darkly humorous… smart… acerbic… endearingly charming’ (Bust). ‘Filthy and fearless’ **** (Telegraph). ‘A raucous, unapologetic hour with big laughs’ ***** (Skinny). ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). ***** (FunnyWomen.com). ***** (TheWeeReview.com).
