Lovecraft's Monsters - Free

Lovecraft's Monsters - Free

David Crawford is dressed in HP Lovecraft’s favourite outfit for this one-man storytelling. It suits its cosy setting of ‘Edinburgh’s Smallest Pub,’ but you can easily imagine it on a spot-lit Victorian stage in front of a rapturous audience...

Hatty Ashdown: Hurry Up Hatty

The Twilight Region

An intimate sci-fi inspired comedy performance. Combining stand-up, improv and sketch, The Rubber Jonnies and friends take their audience on an adventure, where no two shows are the same!

Two adventures, one man, no idea... Rob Coleman wants to cross the Atlantic in a small boat. The only things stopping him are cowardice, constipation and incompetence. Why has he failed - twice?

Alan Irwin - Party Hard

Alan Irwin - Party Hard

Irish comedian Alan Irwin has transformed himself into a man who parties hard and he can transform you too! Well, sort of. Once dull and lifeless, Alan now rocks every room he enters... 

Nev: Gold

Nev: Gold

Who is Nev? He’s a comedian shrouded in mystery, an enigma hidden behind dark sunglasses. Powered by voodoo black magic juju, Gold is surreal, atmospheric, dark, sharp, hypnotic, inventive, angry and heartbroken...
