EDINBURGH PREVIEWS: Thünderbards & Carl Donnelly
Carl Donnelly: Edinburgh Preview
Carl started performing stand-up in 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting comedians. His conversational, silly sense of humour saw him win a host of awards (Chortle Best Newcomer 2007, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2007 among others) and become a regular at all of the finest comedy clubs in the UK and Ireland.
In 2009, Carl performed his debut solo show Relax Everyone, it’s Carl Donnelly! at the Edinburgh Fringe for which he was nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer. Since then, Carl has returned to Edinburgh with three further solo shows and will return with another in 2015, after his nomination in 2013 for the Fosters Comedy Award.
Carl has also appeared on various TV shows including Mock The Week, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, Dave’s One Night Stand, Stand Up for the Week and Russell Howard’s Good News.
Don’t miss the chance to see Carl try out new material for his next Edinburgh Fringe show.
‘Excellent, fast-rising comic with pacy anecdotal routines’ Sunday Times
Critically-acclaimed sketch duo Thünderbards return with their 4nd hour of gag-laden comedy, filled with their trademark off-beat jokes, fast-paced sketches and overwhelming politeness. With a potent combination of heartfelt absurdity, high-concept silliness and sweat-drenched toil, Thünderbards will stop at nothing to make your day great again.
