Edinburgh Preview: Phil Nichol and Lucy Porter
Phil Nichol: Too Much
‘Too Much’ follows the roller coaster ride of Phil’s hilarious relationship with the modern world. And what a confounding, hilarious and messed up world it is. It’s too much.
The planet is messed up, society has devolved, mankind is hopeless, vegans are right, you aren’t supposed to punch facists, the left are self-righteous morons, everyone is a selfish prick, Phil’s a bleeding hypocrite. It’s all too much. Too much.
‘Too Much’ takes an unflinching look at ageing, recognition, mental health, values, norms, patience, love, everything and conkers. Expect riotously uncomfortable anecdotes and oversharing delivered in Nichol’s unique live-wire style.
“This Fringe I’m performing two comedy shows and a classic play every day. Too Much. I’ve written 23 solo hours for the Fringe. Too Much. I’ve won or been nominated for 25 awards including 2018 Best Touring Show (Scottish Comedy Awards 2018) Too Much.
I have over 1034 total stars over the twenty three years of stand-up and 33 years of total comedy that I have performed. Too Much. And still I’m worried that no one will like me. It just all Too Much.” – Phil Nichol 2019
Lucy Porter – Be Prepared
Fringe favourite Lucy returns with another fantastic stand-up show.
At Brownies, Lucy thought she’d be prepared for anything as long as she had her emergency 10p for a phone box, and knew how to tie a Fisherman’s knot. Life turned out to be slightly more complicated than Brown Owl let on.
