Every year, thousands of comics bring comedy shows to the internationally known Edinburgh Fringe Festival. But those shows need to be tweaked and refined, honed and perfected...and that's happening at Laugh Train Home. Don't miss this behind-the-scenes unique opportunity to see these Work in Progress shows. This is how live stand-up comedy is put together.
IVO GRAHAM: Educated Guess (Preview)
After an eventful year off (got a new laptop, etc.), the boy’s back in town, with resolutions galore but less courage in his convictions than ever. How much has Ivo learnt? And what good has it done him?
Ivo has appeared on Mock theWeek, Live at The Apollo, As Yet Untitled, Live from The BBC and Fighting Talk.
‘Sharp punchlines, topper gags and the unmistakable sense of a young comic finding another gear’ The Scotsman
‘Like Hugh Grant’s less well-adjusted younger brother’ The Guardian
LOU SANDERS: An Apology to All the Guys I've Touched (preview)
Lou Sanders talks about her most shameful experiences and somehow fits it into fifty minutes. This lilshame pig has been ever so busy creating a mud bank of sexual and social shame – but just like a swan rising from the ashes, she will reclaim it, own it and do a show about it. And the good news is her escapades are going to make you feel so smugglyand snuggly about your own life choices.
Lou has just had her second appearance on ‘Alan Davies As Yet Untitled’, and recently starred in ‘Live from the BBC’. Her TV stand-up includes sets on ABC1’s ‘Comedy Up Late’ and ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’. Lou has written for ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’, ‘Mock the Week’, ‘Stand Up for the Week’ and ‘Miranda’.
