EDINBURGH PREVIEWS: Fern Brady & Alfie Brown
Scottish comedian Fern is here with Scottish hour. Scottish. As seen on
English comedian Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, English comedian Stewart Lee’s Alternative
Comedy Experience and Viceland’s new series Brexit Stage Left.
‘Suffer Fools’ is a stunning hour of incisive, relentlessly sharp comedy from one of the UK’s rising stars.
As heard on BBC Radio 4’s State of the Nations and BBC Scotland’s Breaking the News. ‘An
astounding hour’ ***** (List). ‘Quick witted acerbic stand-up’ ***** (Skinny).
Alfie’s firebrand style of comedy has been forged from years of pushing boundaries and experimentation.
Natural stage presence combined with explosive material makes for a thrilling performance every time he hits the stage.
Constantly evolving and striving for ways to innovate, Alfie can move from hour-long idea driven shows to tight sets in various clubs effortlessly.
His material touches on introspective thoughts and considerations of the human condition as well as broader observations on social-political issues. All done in an accessible and hilarious way.
An assertive, acerbic and compelling voice, Alfie has garnered critical acclaim throughout his career and continues to grow a fan base here and throughout Europe. With the benefit of being a young act with years of experience the future is bright for this phenomenal talent.
