DOUBLE BILL

John RobinsJOHN ROBINS
THIS TORNADO LOVES YOU
(Edinburgh Fringe Preview)

"Sparkling stand-up" The Times

John Robins is a young, effortlessly funny former Bristol comedian who is a contemporary of Russell Howard and Jon Richardson. His distinctive, self-absorbed comedy marks him out as someone who is uniquely different and deserves your attention if you've not seen him before. An annual visitor to the Edinburgh Festival, this will be John's sixth solo stand-up show.

Carey MarxCAREY MARX
ABOMINABLE
(Edinburgh Fringe Preview)

"Marx's slick delivery lends itself to clever verbal comedy." The Scotsman

Brand new show from this unapologetic gagsmith. Carey Marx is definitely one for the connoisseur of comedy writing. The jokes are short and sharp, often uncomfortably so, as any morality is sacrificed on the altar of quick laughs.

"A brilliant, deeply personal performance’ The Scotsman

"Sharp, sweet, cheeky, cynical, romantic and rude as he ever was" Chortle

"Supremely crafted comedy’’ The List

"A comic at his gleeful best" Edinburgh Evening News
