DATE: SUNDAY 23RD JULY 2017 – DOORS OPEN 3PM
VENUE: MORUZZI & CO
A Sunday jam-packed with hilarity. Three smashing acts, hand-picked by Comedy Sheep preview their Edinburgh shows in Moruzzi’s new space.
Bec Hill provides the jokes. You provide the order. A brand-new hour full of stand-up. pop-ups and post-its from the award-winning Australian comedian. “I adored it” ★★★★★ – Edinburgh Festivals Magazine. “Brilliantly conceived, this is one of the stand-out shows in this year’s comedy programme” ★★★★★ Sunday Herald. “A pleasure to watch” ★★★★ EdinburghGuide.com + Inaugural winner of the Edinburgh Fringe Barry Performers’ Choice Award for Best Show.
“Very friendly but fiercely political” – Time Out. Tiernan Douieb, considers if ignorance is indeed bliss. and if so. surely he shouldn’t know that. Tiernan tries to work out what anyone actually wants anymore, what being civilised actually means and whether or not he’ll ever be able to persuade his wife to like raw tomatoes. A new hour of political gags and nonsense musings from “opinionated yet likeable” (Guardian). “It’s a really lovely show. really good. A really good show” (Mark Thomas).
Hailing from West London and ping-ponging between cultures has left her with no choice but to stand up and laugh about her strict and strange upbringing. A storyteller, Bisha touches on topics including race, religion, science and family. Her laid-back charm, along with her ability to surprise and delight audiences took her to the Final of the 2013 Funny Women Awards within a year of her first gig. “It’s a rare treat to see a comedian with a unique and instantly defined persona. Bisha already seems to know more about comedy than many veterans of the art form.” – Adam Bloom
