Monday 13th July

This month we have a couple of preview thingies in preparation for the big comedy pilgrimage comedians take every year to Edinburgh to self-flagellate themselves into debt. It’s going to be grand! Avail yourselves henceforth:

Michael Legge & Caroline Mabey: Two Stupids

Michael Legge & Caroline MabeyHe’s stand-up’s angriest man and she’s the woman who’s forgotten how to play the bassoon more times than you’ve had hot dinners. They’re both idiots. Join them for this one hour whirlwind nonsense marathon. Anything goes! But only if it’s too stupid to make it into a ‘proper’ show. Gloriously daft and joyfully wrong, it’s the Fringe’s favourite fools in the double act the world has been waiting for. Caroline is a stand-up and sketch comedian and member of Popcorn Comedy alongside Holly Walsh and John Petrie, and has appeared on the BBC and Channel 4 in various guises. Michael is a Bafta nominated comedian who has worked with Richard Herring, Dave Gorman, Robin Ince and appeared in Comedy Central’s Alternative Comedy Experience. Between them they have accrued the following praise:

‘The slightly deranged offspring of a ménage à trois between Vic Reeves, Harry Hill and Floella Benjamin’ – Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard

‘Oddball genius’ – Chortle

‘A kooky, mischievous talent’ – Time Out

‘An absolute delight to watch. Fantastically ditzy and spectacularly absurd… Leaves you feeling a little bit dizzy and a big bit happy’ – The Skinny

‘Often copied, but never matched’ – Time Out

‘A hugely popular and enjoyable comic’ – Red Card Comedy Club

‘top material, excellent delivery’ – What’s On

‘A slick and silly joke writer’ – Chortle

Michael J Dolan

Michael J DolanComedy’s bleak philosopher is back asking the questions nobody else will. When did I last go outside? Am I already dead? How are you meant to maintain a happy marriage in the face of the unstoppable decay of everything that exists? Stand-up comedy for people who are too tired to get angry.

‘Skilful humour from the very dark side’ – Sunday Times

‘Inherently funny’’ – Chortle

‘A very, very funny man’ – The Skinny

‘Grumpiness has never been so smart or so funny’ – Sarah Millican
