Fern Brady & Tom Ward
Chuckle Busters Edinburgh Previews: Catch two excellent comedians each night before they take their new material to the Fringe
It’s the build up to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 and the UK’s finest comedy talent are coming to The Wardrobe Theatre to road test their shows ahead of the world’s largest arts festival. Each night will feature two full length performances from some of the top comedians in the country for just £9.
FERN BRADY: SUFFER, FOOLS!
Following two shows that sold out through word of mouth alone, Scottish comedian Fern is back for another Scottish hour. Scottish. As seen on English comedian Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, English comedian Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience and Viceland’s new series Brexit Stage Left. God, I hope I can cry over a dead relative or come across as sincere this year. As heard on BBC Radio 4’s State of the Nations and BBC Scotland’s Breaking the News.
“An astounding hour” List
“Quick witted acerbic stand-up” Skinny
TOM WARD: LOVE MACHINE
Tom Ward (Chortle Award Winner 2017, BBC Worldwide, Comedy Central) returns with a picnic of broken dreams to share! And the dome-haired, exuberant loner brings forth quite a banquet. On the menu… heartbreak, living (and dancing) alone in a house with no heating or hot water, mother problems, being 91% straight (prev. 77%) and practicing his opinions in case he forgets them at parties. A show that explores a man’s fears, joys, loves and losses; veering between lanes like a Megabus driver with nothing left to lose.
