Edinburgh Preview: Steve Bugeja

Steve Bugeja

Winners of awards always have a little more more pressure on them when they do their first full shows, but I don't think pressure will be a problem for Steve Bugeja, who won the 2013 BBC New Comedy Award. He has previously supported Russell Kane on tour and if you can cope with Kane’s ebullient fanbase you can cope with anything. Bugeja’s style is nervy and nerdy, but also razor-sharp as he rattles out anecdotes. Day Release sounds like a right old yarn too. It concerns the time that he went to a friend’s wedding and had to pick up the bride’s dad from prison en route. Maybe not a story where the entire audience can say they've been there, but you can rest assured that Bugeja will make it accessible to everyone during his 24-day sentence on the Edinburgh Fringe.

Steve Bugeja is at Just The Tonic, Edinburgh from Aug 6 - 30, tickets here. His next preview at The Pleasance, N1 is on July 29, tickets here.
