Edinburgh Preview: Alice Marshall & Glenn Wool
Alice Marshall: The Strike
Winner of Best Comedy Show at Brighton Fringe 2017.
This year’s show sees Alice Marshall return with more of her signature weird and wonderful characters, and this time they’re transporting you all the way to the fifth dimension. Join bold and brassy Hispanic air stewardess Maria – once dubbed ‘the angriest woman in the skies’ – as she welcomes the audience on-board for their fifty minute non-stop flight straight into the Twilight Zone.
Shortly after ‘take off’, the audience experience one hell of a lightning strike, and the plane careers through an unknown universe, throwing up a vast array of bizarre and delightful characters along the way. Forget everything you know about air travel – this is a journey with a difference.

‘One of my favourite shows at this year’s fringe’ ★★★★★ The Fountain

‘Alice Marshall does character comedy at its rawest’ ★★★★ The Wee Review
Glenn Wool: Wool’s Gold II (The Iron Pirate)
Comfortably in his forties, award-winning comedian and new dad Wool delves into his back catalogue of material spanning twenty five years to perform some of his more subversive routines. Does he still agree with those points of view or has he finally grown up? Plus a little navel gazing tossed in for the arty-farty types because it’s the Fringe.
