EDINBURGH PREVIEWS: Tom Lucy & Shappi Khorsandi
Tom Lucy: Tom Lucy Needs to Stop Showing off in Front of His Friends
Fresh from supporting Jack Whitehall, Rob Beckett and Shappi Khorsandi on sold out tours, Tom brings his hotly anticipated debut show to the fringe. Tom is one of the youngest professional comedians working in the UK and in 2016 became the youngest ever winner of the prestigious Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year award. Come and watch Tom show off for an hour in front of (hopefully) his friends.
‘Watch him live and you’ll understand the excitement’ The Guardian
‘Obvious star quality’ Chortle
Shappi Khorsandi: Mistress and Misfit
Shappi presents England’s unsung heroine. For too many years she has been known as just ‘Nelson’s mistress’, a bit of a harlot. (You get ONE job in a brothel and bang goes your reputation.) Women’s lib wasn’t a ‘thing’ in Georgian times, Emma moved mountains to haul herself from ‘scullery maid’ to ‘Lady Hamilton’. Yes, she occasionally danced on tables naked to get ahead in life, but who hasn’t? As a fellow naked dancer on tables, Shappi is inspired by Emma, although she never wants hair big enough to house mice in.
