Every year hundreds of comics bring comedy shows up to the internationally known Edinburgh Fringe. But the shows need to be tweaked, refined and perfected before August, so we have selected our favourite acts to preview at the Four Thieves in July. This is the behind-the-scenes, unique opportunity to see these Works in Progress that you won't get on TV.
TOM DEACON - HAPPY LANDING Well, kind of. Due to amazing career opportunities, Tom is no longer going to the Fringe. However, he is still working on the following show. Which, if you think about it, makes it even more unique. In a time when everything seems doomed politically, it’s time to wish for a happy landing; everything will work out. Trust me. Tom Deacon has starred on BBC Radio 1, Capital FM and Copa90's The Eurofan. After 18 months of Breakfast Show early mornings, he’s now back doing what he loves. Join him for his hilarious new show and be a part of his happy landing. 'A mighty fine comic' (Guardian). 'With looks, confidence, charm and great material; expect other comics to lynch him' (Sunday Times).
Nigel Ng is a Malaysian comic who won Amused Moose Laugh Off in 2016. He is now based in the UK, and can be seen performing in comedy clubs all over the country. Come listen to him perform 45 minutes of jokes about Malaysia, the UK, and how clean the tap water is around these parts. ‘Natural funnybones… as slick as they come’ - Chortle. ‘Plenty of good lines… keen observer’ – Bruce Dessau, beyondthejoke.co.uk
