Edinburgh Previews - Simon Brodkin & Leo Kearse
SIMON BRODKIN – Screwed up
World-famous prankster and Lee Nelson creator Simon Brodkin returns with a blistering new stand-up show ripping into his ADHD diagnosis, I’m A Celebrity rejection, barmitzvah humiliation, five arrests and one sex party.
Simon's last Fringe show (100% Simon Brodkin) was completely sold-out and selected by The Guardian and the Evening Standard as one of their Best Comedy Shows.
"Hilarious" ★★★★ Scotsman
"There aren't many better comedians" ★★★★ Telegraph
LEO KEARSE – Cancel Culture
A stand-up show about comedy triggering the wrath of woke mobs. My comedy has led to accusations of transphobia (despite writing the offending material with a transgender woman I was dating), racism (which led to me getting blacklisted by clubs), sexism (fair do’s) and ableism. I’ve also been criticised by climate activists, socialists and vegans and I’ve had fat activists demonstrate against my shows. Am I really a bad person? Can comedy survive under the constant threat of cancellation?
“Genuinely thought-provoking...hugely entertaining….a warm and personal show” ★★★★ THE SCOTSMAN”
“A triumphant hour of outrageous and dark jokes, not pushing but gleefully running straight through the boundaries of taste and acceptability in today’s “woke” culture - BRITISH COMEDY GUIDE RECOMMENDED SHOW
Doors open from 6pm, show starts at 8pm
