Fin Taylor: Lefty Tighty Righty Loosey
The most talked about comedian from last year’s Fringe is back. He’s still white, and you’re still hippies. Something’s got to give. And I’m not blacking up. It’s been a globe-trotting year for Whitey. He’s been to America, Australia, Holland and the rest. All over, he’s found people who say they’re too left wing to vote for centrists and he’s decided to call bull. A man who is now politically homeless drags you dropouts down into his gutter. ***** (Scotsman). ***** (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Thought-provoking and side-splitting’ (Independent). ‘The most relevant comedian at the Fringe’ (EdFestMag.com).
Michael Stranney: Welcome to Ballybeg
As seen on ITV2, Michael Stranney (NATY winner, Chortle Best Newcomer nominee, BBC New Comedy Award finalist) presents the debut hour from his character Daniel Duffy. Daniel invites you to a tourist board presentation for his beloved village of Ballybeg – a curious Northern Irish backwater where the milkman brings his cow door-to-door every morning, where you can win a new husband in the annual raffle, and where the local hearse doubles as a minicab service. A surreal, immersive hour packed with warmth and imagination. ‘Made me cry with laughter’ (FringeReview.com) ****(EdFestMag.com) **** (Threeweeks).
