Edinburgh Preview Shows- two full work in progress shows, from phenominal comics
ALEX EDELMAN: Just For Us (Preview)
Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Alex Edelman returns to Edinburgh with his third solo show. It’s about jigsaw-loving Nazis and tribalism. Come. In the last year alone, Edelman has performed on Conan, supported Beck and Ricky Gervais, and saw his special, Live at the BBC released on Netflix UK. A Boston native, NYC dweller, this millennial posterboy is wise beyond his years, remarkably self-assured, and at the top of his game. He’s still Jewish. Hope that’s OK.
‘Boasting technical flair and a precocious authority, Edelman’s comedy manages to capture the voice of Generation Y’ (Guardian).
PETE FIRMAN: Marvels (Preview)
The UK's leading comedy magician' (Time Out) returns to the Fringe with an astonishing new show. As seen on ITV1's Tonight at the London Palladium, The Next Great Magician, BBC One's The John Bishop Show and The Sarah Millican Television Programme. Expect Pete's trademark blend of laugh-out-loud comedy and jaw-dropping magic. 'The man from Middlesbrough sets the pace for comedy-meets-magic in the 21st century' (Times) 'Seamless blending of quality magic and stand-up comedy. It is a joy to watch' (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine).
