Neil Harris & Julie Grady Thomas - Edinburgh Previews

Sunday 1st July 2018

Neil is a computer programmer turned stand-up who finished runner-up of Hilarity bites New Comedian 2017, and appeared on BBC Radio Newcastle's Jesting About. Despite being self-confessed geek with social anxiety, Neil often finds himself in life's deep-end due to his unexpected group of friends.
'Hilarious nerd routine nailed down' Toonadvisor.com
Julie is an American (not one of those ones) with cool, crafted and captivating anecdotes. Her work has been featured in Elle UK.
'Intelligent, thought-provoking and effortlessly engaging' Vladimir McTavish

Then come be lifted by the Sod The Tories. A night of comedy, music, spoken word and general anti-authoritarian shenanigans. We’re not saying you’re an idiot if you like all the things mentioned above, but the people that are behind them think you’re a f**king moron. We don’t. We respect your right to have your intellect stimulated.
Or you can remain bewildered with the herd. That’s how they want you. Things are changing…

Good Grief - Kiri Pritchard McLean & Rob Auton Double Bill Special

Monday 9th July 2018

Kiri Pritchard McLean - 'Victim, Complex' (WiP)
This is Kiri’s third show and it’s absolutely the hardest to write. Not because she’s short of material, she’s got loads to say, she was just struggling to make it funny. This is a show about women, friends and sanity.
'An increasingly impressive comic, making powerhouse standup from the thorniest of subjects' Guardian
'Passionate, smart and yes, bloody funny' Scotsman
Rob Auton 'The Talk Show' (WiP)
This is a comedy/theatre/spoken word show about talking. Following on from his shows about hair, sleep, water, faces, the sky and the colour yellow, Rob now turns his attention to talking because he is ready to talk.
'A genuine original. Poetical, philosophical, humane, completely charming and funny to boot.’ Guardian
'Charming, eccentric and uplifting, Auton is a talent to watch.’ Independent
'He is entirely compelling to watch. He’s a poet/writer/talker and it’s funny in parts but that’s not the point – there is something else happening, I’m not entirely sure what it is but it’s great and it wallops you in the belly.’ Daniel Kitson

Rahul Kohli - All My Heroes Are Dead, In Jail or Touched Up Your Nan

Sunday 22nd July 2018

Rahul Kohli grew up with many heroes. He now realises all of them are or if not will be exposed as homophobes, sex pests, Nazis and perhaps even homunculi secretly harvesting human lives in an attempt to attain a Philosophers Stone. As a result, he now has no heroes, and treats everyone as potential Nazi-paedophiles (I’m looking at you).
From his favourite wrestler Hulk Hogan to the football club Newcastle United, to even his political champion Gandhi.
But was everyone that ever lived truly a horrid bag of shit? Or are societies standards changing at an exponential rate humanity is just not ready for yet?
Explore this question with a man who knows what he’s talking about (He accidentally befriended a paedophile two years ago, no shit!).
P.s, it’s that everyone that ever lived was a bag of shit, including you… as a matter of fact, especially you. BUT COME FIND OUT WHY: 5.30PM, THE STAND 22 JULY,
As seen on BBC Big Asian Comedy Night.
