Angela Barnes & Ahir Shah
Chuckle Busters presents two top comedians trying out their latest shows before they head to the world’s largest arts festival
ANGELA BARNES: ROSE-TINTED
Following sell-out Fringe shows in 2014, 2015 and 2017, Angela Barnes (Mock The Week, Alan Davies’ As Yet Untitled, Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz, host of Newsjack on BBC Radio 4 Extra) is back with her brand-new 2018 show Rose-Tinted. Stand-up and stories that look on the bright side of life.
“Feels like a sure-fire bet the instant she utters her opening lines.”
“She’s just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic.”
“The pace is fast, the material strong and the delivery perfect.”
AHIR SHAH: DUFFER
Ahir Shah returns to Edinburgh with a new hour of stand-up about life and what comes after, death and what comes before, and Bohemian Rhapsody. Shah’s last show, Control, enjoyed a critically acclaimed Fringe run, culminating in a nomination for Best Show at the 2017 Edinburgh Comedy Awards. This was followed by a UK tour, including three weeks at London’s Soho Theatre.
“One of his generation’s most eloquent comic voices.”
“A scope and wit about him that is exciting to behold.”
“Ratchets up the dismay to thermonuclear levels.”
