After covering weighty issues like death, love, religion and spam javelins, ‘The King of Edinburgh’ (List) is in a frivolous mood with this show about daftness, whether the term cool comedian is an oxymoron, bouncing joyously on the sofa and how Herring’s whole career is a failed attempt to top a piece of visual slapstick comedy he came up with at 16. Can he revisit the joke thirty years on or will it smash his old bones? ‘Dependably funny’ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘A new Richard Herring show is a never-ending cause for delight’ (List).
Less pathetic now, Williams follows his Best Newcomer nominated debut with a show about money. Let Edinburgh tremble. He’s in Sheeps if you’re a fan of them, though his solo stuff is a bit different tonally. If you like television he’s done a few things for that: Russell Howard’s Good News, Comedy Central At The Comedy Store, something for Channel 4. And if you’re old, he’s been on BBC Radio 4, like, three times. ‘Beautifully crafted’ ***** (Metro). ‘A rather special stand-up’ (Telegraph). Please note this event will start at 7pm promptly, doors are at 6.30pm
