RICHARD HERRING - OH FRIG I'M 50!
'I only regret the people I didn't have sex with... And 60% of the people I did have sex with.’
"The King of Edinburgh." (List) makes a triumphant return on the 30th anniversary of his first Fringe, with his 40th show in his 50th year. Older and wiser? Or just older? And more stupid. Following on from Oh F*ck, I'm 40!, this is the second (and let's face it, almost certainly penultimate) instalment in Herring's once-a-decade examination of ageing.
"A gloriously infantile delight in mischief, provocation and inspired rudeness." Guardian
“The best comedian of his generation.” GQ
ERICH MCELROY TOPS TRUMP
It’s pretty hard to top the most controversial figure in modern political history, but American-born, British-based comic McElroy has stacked the deck. He’s got all the alternative truth, the fakest news and is gonna Make the Fringe Great Again. This is comedy that grabs you – by the funny bone.
Heard on BBC Radio Scotland’s Breaking the News and Radio 4’s Moral Maze. Seen on BBC Breakfast, Good Morning Britain, SkyNews.
"Well worth it, even if you’re not in the least bit political." The Scotsman
"Hiarliously insightful." The List
"Brilliant observation." Chortle
"A box worth ticking." Metro
BEN VAN DER VELDE - SIDEKICK
Some people are life's heroes, its leading men and women. They're full of swash, buckle and daring-do. Others are happy to stand at the side and hold their jackets.
For every Fred Flinstone, there is a Barney Rubble. Every Yogi needs a Booboo and all Sherlocks need a patient Watson.
This is a show about the men and women who pick up the pieces whilst the main man is busy humping the heroine after the credits have rolled.
"A sharp and crafty gagsmith, with wittily obtuse takes on an impressively wide range of topics bringing flair and confidence to them all." Chortle
"Whipsharp...with an air of mischievous mayhem...his hit rate is impressive, while his in-the-moment style creates a buzz of excitement in the room...a life-giving compere." Chortle
"Highly promising..an accomplished act." Time Out

“Turns lazy stereotypes and political messes into biting, personal, satire.” **** Ed Fringe Review
“On flights of fancy, he pushes ideas to extremes and displays a crackling, spontaneous energy in which we're swept up.” Fest
