EDINBURGH PREVIEWS: John Hastings & Chris Martin
John Hastings: Audacity
BBC Three’s John Hastings, the funniest white comedian from Canada, was briefly vegan and is currently in love. An Amused Moose Comedy Award-nominated comedian, he’s here to confront his fear of confrontation and prove that love starts in the toilet (not that kind, you yucky idiots).
