Andrew Watts – Feminism for Chaps

£10.00

A show about Feminism. For chaps. Andrew Watts is an ‘exquisitely funny’ (Time Out) comedian, but he didn't realise he was a feminist ... until now. Join him as he explores, with his trademark ‘intelligent wit’ (Scotsman), how chaps like him can change the world. ‘An enticing blend of honest storytelling and dark humour’ (Independent on Sunday). ‘Stand-up laced with a cerebral cutting-edge’ **** (ThreeWeeks). As seen on ITV's Stand-Up Hero and Comedy Central's The World Stands Up.

Come explore the funny side of being judged on appearance, violence and God with Tim's dark yet cheerful sense of humour. If you believe you will go to hell for laughing at the disabled (he also happens to have cerebral palsy), Tim says: see you there.

Gerry Howell’s Portal of Discovery

£10.00

Gerry’s life has imploded, his girlfriend has left him and he’s worried he’s lost his sense of humour. James Joyce once said ‘a man of genius makes no mistakes. His errors are volitional, portals of discovery’. Now Gerry is making the potentially huge mistake of bringing to Edinburgh a show that bears no relation to his blurb in the Fringe Programme. Let’s hope he’s some kind of genius. Or no-one has read the Programme. A comedy show about a fish, a banana and a broken heart.
