For 3 nights only. At the Duchess Theatre, London.
The lastminute.com Edinburgh Comedy Awards presents three mixed bill comedy nights featuring some of the top nominees and winners from past years, in the heart of London’s West End.
First off on the 16th October, one of Ireland’s most successful up and coming comedians (and he’s only 24) Al Porter (2016 Best Comedy Show nominee)joins sharp political comedian Ahir Shah (2017 Best Comedy Show nominee) and Sophie Willan, whose show on identity (both personal and political) saw her nominated for Best Comedy Show this year. Headlining is Nish Kumar, host of The Mash Report on BBC Two and nominee for Best Comedy Show in 2016 and 2015. The evening is compered by Edinburgh comedian (and the voice of ITV2’s Love Island) Iain Stirling.
On the 23rd October, one of the most compelling breakout stars of this year Darren Harriot (2017 Best Newcomer nominee) joins frenetically funny Adam Hess (2015 Best Newcomer nominee) and Showstopper! The Improvised Musical star Pippa Evans (2008 Best Newcomer nominee). Headlining is John Robins, who this year shared the Best Comedy Show Award (alongside Hannah Gadsby) for his painfully funny show about the breakup of his relationship with comedian Sara Pascoe. The evening is compered by quick-witted MC Danny McLoughlin.
On the 30th October charismatic raconteur Jayde Adams (2016 Best Newcomer nominee) and fiercely funny confessional comedian Larry Dean (2015 Best Newcomer nominee) share the bill with celebrated comedian, writer, actor and headliner of the evening Sara Pascoe(2014 Best Comedy Show nominee). The evening is compered by the super-smart and original Kiri Pritchard-McLean; one-fourth of deliciously dark sketch troupe Gein’s Family Gift Shop (2014 Best Newcomer nominees).
