Sunday 11th March

We will never be warm again. Frostlings creep into our homes at night to reset our wifi passwords, interfacing their icicles to wage the coldest kind of information warfare. Snowmen wielding broadswords of sheer ice trudge through Brexish streets, slaying anyone who fails to produce a blue passport. Tea freezes solid within seconds of its pouring, as do our tears. The concept of sunshine is unfathomable to the young, who succumb to hypothermia whilst warming their hands to iPads playing the Netflix log fire. But it’s still Mother’s Day next Sunday, so be nice to yours before coming to see this dope, delightful and dead daft line-up.

Pat Cahill

Pat CahillFrom winning Chortle Best Newcomer and Hackney Empire New Act Awards in 2012, Pat has gone on to become a perenially daft presence on the alternative comedy scene both in the UK and internationally. His own style of “controlled silliness” (EdFestMag) has led him to appearances on Dave’s One Night Stand, Sky Arts, BBC3, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show and BBC 4 Extra. As well as two national tour support slots for Ardal O’Hanlon and Nina Conti, Pat has written and performed four critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe Festival solo shows, and appeared internationally in Belgium, Switzerland, France, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, The Netherlands, and Peterborough.

Nominee Best Show, Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival 2016

“Cahill strikes an unlikely balance between stretched absurdity and sophisticated introspection… This is one of the strangest and most satisfying hours of the Festival” ★★★★★ — EdFestMag

“This quirky performer has true star quality and bags of originality, mixing physical humour, gimmicks, wordplay and comedy songs. Imagine a cross between Sean Lock and Eddie Izzard and you might be getting somewhere, but nowhere close” — Evening Standard

“when I’ve been asked about comedians to recommend this Fringe, Cahill has always been the first name mentioned” ★★★★★ — Short Com

“Wonderfully weird” — The Guardian

Peter Brush

Peter BrushA highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes, Peter Brush unassumingly takes the stage with his slight bespectacled frame and scruffy hair, before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion. Peter has been a finalist in a variety of regional and national comedy competitions including the BBC New Comedy Award 2013, as well as winning the Harrogate Comedian of the Year 2012. He has also written for BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz, The Show What You Wrote and Newsjack.

“Compellingly hilarious, first-class gag writing; an original and achingly funny voice.” ★★★★½ — Chortle

“Unique observations and connections that stand-ups crave” — The Guardian

“He has loads of high quality gags in supply. Could become a must see fringe act for fans of original comedy” ★★★★ — Short Com
