Everyone in comedy (with any taste and discernment) has been singing the praises of this Leodensian living in London who brings to comedy a literary Northernness that adds to every satisfyingly chiselled joke a bracing and edifying sort of hilarity. Having being named one to watch in TimeOut, praised by every comedy reviewer going for his debut Edinburgh show (for which he was nominated as best newcomer) and appearing on Russell Howard’s Good News and Sean Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular, Williams is currently cementing his fast growing reputation as one of the most exciting new voices in comedy. The Huffington Post even called him the Philip Larkin of British comedy. To sum up, he is a properly good comedian.
‘a striking talent… a distinctive new voice in comedy… undeniably brilliant’ – The Guardian
‘Definitely one to keep a close eye on’ – TimeOut
‘a rather special stand-up comic’ – The Telegraph
‘the most soulful, daring, intellectually unabashed young comedian in the country’ – The Huffington Post
‘Beautifully crafted’ – Metro
Eddie is not an unfamiliar face round these parts as he’s performed for us on three separate occasions, though once as a member of the joyfully entertaining improv group, The Discount Comedy Checkout. But it’s been far too long since we’ve had the pleasure of this comedy polymath’s company, whose skills as a performer are stupendous and ebullient in equal measure. He’s also an incredible cook, guitarist and gives the best hugs. The best. This description may have gone beyond its remit.
‘Nothing short of brilliant… the other comedians had a hard act to follow’ – Leeds Student
‘Ridiculously talented’ – The Press, York
‘Wonderful… rib-tickling’ – Leeds Guide
