This month we have a chance to experience a superb stand-up, who won an award for his previous Edinburgh show, do his new Edinburgh show. So that’s good and exciting. In addition to that there will be support from two exciting new acts and as your regular host is back off holiday and worried that too much fun was had in his absence, he will also be bringing cake back to the proceedings. Yes, that’s right… ♫ Return of the cake (yes it is!) / Return of the cake (come on!) / Return of cake (oh my god!) / Return of the cake (don’t you know?) / Return of the cake (watch my flow!) / Cake is back up in the game! ♫. So that’s good too, and everyone with taste buds is surely excited about that.
Stokes was one of Square Hole’s early closers and it is wonderful to have him back to perform his new Edinburgh show. His last show, An Opera Written on Napkins, won the award for best show when he took it to the Leicester Comedy Festival and he has since supported Milton Jones on Dave’s One Night stand and continued to build a reputation as one of the most thoughtful and compelling funny people on the comedy circuit. In his new show, Tells it Like it Possibly Could Potentially Might Be, Stokes considers honesty and why, if it is a virtue and widely perceived to be the best policy, so many people use it as an excuse to be rude. He wonders if ‘telling it like it is’ or ‘straight talking’ is really so great by delving into the mass confusion of the subjective with the objective, as well as discussing keyboard warriors, chatty greengrocers and self-published erotic novels. Tired of being told it like it is? This show tells it like it possibly could potentially might be. There’s also a sex scene with Alan Bennett.
