Now in in it’s 6th year The Schadenfreude Cabaret’s Edinburgh Preview Season brings a selection of the finest acts to The Harrison throughout June and July.
The beautiful surroundings of The Basement Bar make the perfect environment to see this summers most innovative, creative and funny shows before they head up to The Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
The Season has consistently featured in the capital’s ‘must see gigs’. Our regular comedy club is listed by Time Out as one of the Top Ten Free Clubs in London. As always the line up is an eclectic mix with something for everyone. From established TV regulars and award winners to this years hotly tipped rising stars.
The venue regularly packs out so this year you can guarantee a seat to any of our double bills for just £5 or alternatively, just show up on the night and pay what you want at the end of the show.
Jack Barry: High Treason
This show is about why we should legalise all the drugs. It’s serious business, so has a serious name. But it’s also a pun, so you know you’ll have fun. As seen/heard on Channel 4, Channel 5, ITV 2 and BBC Radio 4. **** (List). ‘The hardest I have laughed at the Fringe so far’ ***** (EdFringeReview.com). ‘A degree of skill that belies his youth’ (Fest). ‘Ridiculously funny and genuinely impressive’ **** (theedinburghreporter.co.uk).
The Naz Show
Heavyweight sketch maestro (WitTank) and award winning stand-up veteran, Naz, charges back to the Burgh to punch out his first solo sketch show. Characters grotesque, sketches inspired and laughs aplenty. Star of BBC Two’s Inside No. 9, Flat TV and Plebs (ITV2). ‘A high energy, no-holds- barred hour from the consistently funny Naz’ (Telegraph). ‘Particularly magnetic’ (Guardian). ***** (Three Weeks). ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). **** (List). **** (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine). **** (ArtsAwardVoice.com). Come!
