STUART MITCHELL & CHRIS FORBES FRINGE PREVIEW DOUBLE BILL

Tuesday 17th July 2018

Work-in-progress sneak-peak previews of the upcoming Fringe shows before they're taken to Edinburgh in August.
Stuart Mitchell
A truly astonishing and hilarious confessional story where the worlds of haute cuisine and high finance collide to bring about a lucid moment in the life of someone who was lost and now is found. The law of unintended consequences means that the worst moments of our lives are often great lessons in disguise and in this instance Gordon Ramsay became the arch nemesis of a young man who was cooking up his own recipe for disaster!
‘A work of genius’ Daily Record ★★★★★
'A comedian worth catching before he becomes mega' SUNDAY MAIL

Chris Forbes
Star of BBC's Scot Squad & Award winning Comedian, Chris Forbes tells the remarkable story about how he met a man who believes he is the son of God.
'Brilliantly observed...laugh out loud stuff…A natural comedian' Herald
'He’s brilliant company – honest, insightful, very funny' Scotsman ★★★★
Perth Fringe World Nominated

Davey Reilly: Disposable Camera (WIP)

Sunday 22nd July 2018

After finding an unprocessed camera for sale, Davey Reilly spent years deliberating over whether or not to get it developed. Would the contents prove to be exciting, or would an anti-climax await.
With the film's expiration date fast approaching, he was going to have to make a decision.
Davey Reilly presents a new hour of comedy exploring curiosity, potential, and Russian spies.
'It’s amazing to watch a one-man comedy gig achieve what often takes a whole cast, elaborate set and theatrical conceit.' - Meg.ie
