2PM: MAX AND IVAN

Class of 2007, assemble! Now a Channel 4 Blaps series, Max & Ivan (BBC Two's W1A, Radio 4's The Casebook of Max & Ivan) reprise their critically lauded, Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated show for 11 nights only. A bewitching narrative sketch comedy tale of love, loss and shatterproof rulers. Directed by Tom Parry. 'Hugely ambitious and impressive' ★★★★ (Guardian). 'It's impossible to stop beaming. A joyous hour' ★★★★  (Independent). 'A feelgood triumph' ★★★★  (Time Out). 'Ingenious' ★★★★  (Times). 'An emotional heart that's hard to resist' ★★★★ (Chortle.co.uk). 'It's utterly magnificent... superbly written and performed' ★★★★ ½ (Herald).

 

3:30PM: PHIL WANG

Winner of the 2010 Chortle Student Comedian Of The Year Award and Comedy Central Live Funniest Student Award 2011.

Phil has appeared on The Rob Bryden Show (BBC2) and Live At The Apollo and was featured on BBC Three At The Fringe in 2011.

'Very promising up-and-comer' (The Independent)

'Slick, distinctive, and funny... A well-rounded young comic headed for greater things' (Chortle)

'Master of the intellectual dick joke' (Time Out)

'Certain belly laughs... astonishingly assured debut' (The Sunday Times)

'He's an intelligent, attuned observer and his thoughts reward attentive listening' (The Scotsman).

5PM: BRIONY REDMAN


Briony Redman was shortlisted for the BAFTA Rocliffe Comedy Script Prize 2016 and previously performed as part of double act Surname & Surname “A vibrant and articulate sense of mischief” The Times.  She is an experienced improviser who regularly performs as part of The Free Association (The FA). She is not so much a “glass half-full” kind of person as a “Hey, look at that glass, there’s something in it, amazing!” kind of person.

 

6:50PM JON POINTING – ACT NATURAL

In this much anticipated debut show, Jon Pointing presents Cayden Hunter, an actor who will demonstrate the importance of selflessness and sharing through this (non-participatory) workshop.

'Keenly observed and impeccably performed' **** (Chortle.co.uk).
As seen on BBC Three's Pls Like.

8PM: PHOEBE WALSH – I'LL HAVE WHAT SHE'S HAVING

We're born alone, we live with weird people we find on Gumtree, we die alone. Phoebe does some lovely jokes about the struggles of living, working and finding true love in this post-truth world. You'll either relate to what she's saying or feel glad that you don't. So, whoever you are, you should come. Phoebe's credits include writing for Vice and Elle magazine, sketches for C4 and E4, starring in BBC2's The Javone Prince Show and All4's Webscam.

'OMFG! I wanna be her!' (Malala).
