EDINBURGH PREVIEWS: Angela Barnes & Phil Jerrod
Angela Barnes: Fortitude
Following sell-out Fringe shows in 2014 and 2015, Angela Barnes (Mock The Week, Alan Davies’ As yet Untitled, Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC R4’s The News Quiz, host of Newsjack on BBC R4Extra) is back with her brand new 2017 show Fortitude. Stand up and stories from reluctant 40 year old with some stuff to say
‘Feels like a sure-fire bet the instant she utters her opening lines’ The Scotsman
‘She’s just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic’ The Guardian
‘The pace is fast, the material strong and the delivery perfect’ Chortle
Phil Jerrod: Submerged
Fresh from supporting Romesh Ranganathan on his nationwide tour, the ‘cynical, astute and impassioned’ (Chortle.com) comedian returns with his third debut show at the Fringe. Everyone’s obsessed with living longer, looking better, being healthier, but Phil’s still overweight, still hairy, and still just about keeping his head above water in a world that’s gone mad.
With ‘Insightful, despairing wit’ (The Scotsman) and ‘Razor sharp timing’ (Ed Fest) come and see a fat sweaty man prance around for an hour in a show that’s literally been described as ‘A very funny hour of stand-up comedy’ (Broadway Baby).
