JACK EVANS — WORK

Workers of the world: please stop! Jack Evans, lizard prince of Manchester's alternative circuit, presents a punchy, out-there hour about work: its history, its present and a future without it. Jack’s last show Melancholy Poontang was one of i-D's best shows at the Fringe. 'An alternative tour de force' **** (EdFestMag.com). 'Go see him if you like weird stuff' **** (ShortCom.co.uk). 'Absolutely the best Noam Chomsky material ever' (Scotsman). 'As inventive and unsettling as a one-man League of Gentlemen' (i-D). 'Follow him down his dark path. You really should' (Skinny). 'Twisted genius' (WOW247.co.uk). 'Catch him now' (List).

ROSS BRIERLEY — ACCUMULATOR

What would you do if you had a bet on the horses and won a year's wages in a day? Quit your job and become a professional gambler? Sure, why not. Award-winning comedian Ross Brierley takes you on a surreal journey into the highs and lows of trying to predict the future to pay the bills. An hour of big, daft ideas and little plastic pens from the host of The Not So Late Show with Ross and Josh.
''Potential brilliance' ‘ The Skinny
''Setting a high benchmark for alternative comedy' Yorkshire Post

SEAN MORLEY — I APOLOGISE FOR MY RECENT BEHAVIOUR

Remorseful absurdist Sean Morley plays with guilt, blame, forgiveness and audience expectations in this genre-bending stand-up apology. 'Creative in his outlook and bold with his audience manipulation, creating the sort of encounter you'll talk about for some time afterwards' (Steve Bennett, Chortle.co.uk). 'The up and coming talent of the surrealist genre' (BroadwayBaby.com). As heard on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 4 Extra. In the centre of my chest is a dense heavy weight and every day I feel it dragging me towards the centre of the Earth.

SAM & TOM — INTERVIEW

After review of your application, Sam & Tom are pleased to offer you the opportunity to interview for the position of audience in their new cult comedy show. Sam & Tom are an upstart company specialising in audience-oriented comedy deliverance. They have won industry plaudits and their individual assets have been featured on BBC radio, BBC television… and that’s it. In their second show they will go over the basics of the job and tell you a little more about themselves. Sketch Off finalists 2018. 'I loved it – sharp and witty' (chortle.co.uk)

PETER BRUSH — CHASING SNAILS

Awkward jokesmith Peter Brush takes on today’s hot topics, the Bayeux Tapestry, socks, the reason why snails move so slowly, and whether you’ll think more favourably of this show after he’s dead. ‘Compellingly hilarious… first-class gag writing… an original and achingly funny voice’ ****½ (Chortle.co.uk). 'An hour of killer gags with no let-up in quality' (Fest). facebook.com/peterbrushcomedy

DELIGHTFUL SAUSAGE — REGENERATION GAME

Surreal comedy from Yorkshire’s finest, meat-themed double act. Join Chris and Amy in a gag-packed mission to crown their town the City of Culture. Find out what culture is, who’s been secreting it and why that stain won’t wash. A multimedia adventure for fans of economic recession, blue top milk and Bigfoot. The follow-up to the duo’s debut show which was recorded for NextUp and transferred to the Soho Theatre. 'One of the best adverts for modern alternative comedy' **** (EdFestMag.com). 'Inventive and increasingly hysterical' **** (Skinny). 'Brims with ideas and creativity' **** (ThreeWeeks)

THE KAGOOLS — KULA

Multi award-winning physical comedy duo, The Kagools, are unstoppable as they propel silent comedy into the 21st century with pure joy, anarchic buffoonery and unique 'wit and imagination' ***** (TheWeeReview.com). Following the success of their 2017 show (winners of Best Comedy Award: Adelaide Fringe Weekly and Amused Moose Edinburgh 2017), they return to Edinburgh with their brand-new show. You won't see anything «Kula» at the Fringe. 'See The Kagools now before they make it big on TV' (Adelaide Advertiser). 'A brilliant show' ***** (MumbleComedy.net). 'Ingenious… life-affirming' ****½ (Rip It Up). 'Comedy gold' **** (BroadwayBaby.com)

THE NOT SO LATE SHOW WITH ROSS & JOSH

Join your hosts, Ross Brierley and Joshua Sadler, as they bring the UK’s finest spoof chat show and chaotic cabaret back to the Fringe. Ross and Josh are ‘Vic and Bob for the video game, grime generation’ (Scotsman), bringing you a prime-time dose of high energy, multimedia hilarity with chief collaborators Larry Budd and Paul Dunphy and a revolving door of very special guests. ‘More originality and inventiveness within a few minutes of this show than in the entire duration of other Fringe hours’ (Skinny). ‘A unique treat’ (EdFestMag.com)
