The Story Beast
Comedy. Ritual. Absolute bangers. Back in this dimension by popular demand, the Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominated Story Beast (alias John Henry Falle) returns with a folk horror show that's magick AF. Evil is abroad on the fields of England and there's only one wizard powerful (and drunk) enough to face it... Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality nominee, Barry Award (UK) for Best Act nominee 'One of the wonders of the Fringe' ***** (Mirror). 'White hot brilliance... one hell of an achievement' **** (Time Out). 'A thing of wonder' **** (Fest).
Expect off-beat brilliance and songs" The Times. One half of the critically acclaimed duo That Pair (Sketchorama, BBC Radio 4, Soho Theatre, Funny Women Finalists). 'Beautiful skits and bonkers characters' **** (Times). 'Strong, simple melodies and Shaw's guitar playing and vocal ability make for an album of pop hits' ***** (BroadwayBaby.com).
Briony Redman: Work In Progress
Come marvel at one woman's attempt to create a show based on the overly specific blurb she put in the Edfringe programme. A comedy show that may include aliens, military zumba and a who-almost-dunnit. Sketch comedy from a BAFTA Rocliffe-winning writer and improviser with The Free Association, The Playground and Questing Time. 'Effortlessly feel good' (The Skinny). 'An articulate sense of mischief' (The Times). 'A unique and riotous series of interwoven sketches' (FringeBiscuit.co.uk).
