Edinburgh Comedians See Stars
Wednesday 31 August 2011
So Edinburgh has come to an end for another year, and as artists and audiences reluctantly head home, topped up with caffeine and berocca wondering whether the past month was in fact a water-logged whirlwind of a dream, we take a look at some of the comedians that did really well.
After winning the Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award last year, there were high hopes for Russell Kane’s Manscaping show this Summer and he didn’t disappoint – the show received a plethora of four and five stars:
“Manscaping is Kane’s best yet…this is a pyrotechnically funny hour, in which Kane applies his uncommonly critical intelligence to his love life, his career curve and the various identities available to the modern male.” The Guardian, read the full review here
The Boy With Tape On His Face performed by Sam Wills was also met with critical acclaim as Chortle awarded it five stars.
Dave Gorman performed at the Fringe for the first time in eight years with his show Dave Gorman’s PowerPoint Presentation for which he was “presented” starred reviews. Chortle said it was “intelligent, playful, quirky, obsessive and original” and Fest Mag gave five stars and announced it “a storming success”.
We are pleased to name all these comedians as acts within our Autumn programme – take a look and book today before their Edinburgh successes make them sell-out shows!
