ADAM RICHES
Former comedy Award Winner made a triumphant return to the fringe this year in a show that once again pushed the boundaries of what is possible for a character comic. Infectious high octane silliness.

“the unpredictability and the ridiculous and occasionally gross situations he engineers… take his show to the heights of giddy elation” – ★★★★½ Chortle
“This generous, goofy and imperious display of rugged ridiculousness fills the room with a blast of fun” – ★★★★ The Times
“Adam Riches will have you on the edge of your seat” – ★★★★ The Skinny

JORDAN BROOKES
EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARDS BEST SHOW NOMINEE
“Hey! Wait a second! Jordan was on the Pick of the fringe show last year?” Yes he was, that’s because Jordan’s 2016 show “The making of” was a fine piece of work. We didn’t know this year he would top it. After battling it out at a noisy venue Jordan was still able to perform a show that will stick long in our minds, joyfully playing with what can be achieved in standup. Her is now finishing his run the Pleasance where the critical praise has deservedly come flooding in.

“If you go and see Jordan Brookes this Fringe, be sure to take lots of rugs… for he’ll keep pulling them out from under you” – Chortle ★★★★½
“This is the comedy of constant discombobulation and it is glorious” – ★★★★ The Scotsman
“Brookes is gamely playful, messing about with the conventions of mime, character and confessional comedy” – ★★★★ Fest

“Might just be good enough to propel sheer idiocy back into fashion… a cracking hour of nonsense comedy” – ★★★★ The Guardian
“It is experiences like this that the Fringe is for” – ★★★★★ The Skinny
“Like a digital Terry Gilliam… it would be a miserable sod who wasn’t won over by Ewins’s cheery nonsense” – ★★★★ Chortle
