Chris Betts: Bewilderbeest
Betts is back, but he’s got a problem. What do you do when you can’t trust the law, the elderly or even yourself? Join him for a hilarious dissemination of human nature, featuring crooked cops and superstitious children. This occasionally edgy but always hysterical Canadian jokesmith with a gift for ‘drolly original reasoning’ and ‘zinging turn of phrase’ (Scotsman) is a must-see. Betts’s rigorous curiosity and lively imagination make him one of the most exciting acts around. (Daily Telegraph) Top 20 Jokes of the Fringe 2015. ‘An hour is not nearly enough’ **** (Fresh Fringe, FreshAir.org.uk).
Glenn Wool: Viva Forever
Glenn Wool (As heard on Freestyle with Frankie Boyle, as seen on Doug Stanhope and Friends on Seeso) returns with a hysterical new show chronicling his past two years, which is interesting because… well, just come to the show. He’ll tell you then. I mean, if you’ve read this far, just
Google him and see if it’s your kind of thing (I can’t believe we still have to tell people about Google in this day and age, but there you go. I blame Trump.). ‘A masterpiece of comedy’ ***** (Scotsman).
