Rhys James - Snitch

SOLD OUT

Mock The Week regular and star of his own BBC Radio 4 series, Rhys James heads out on his first national tour.

In early 2019, Rhys was asked to go back to his school and inspire the Year 11s. Given that teenagers are a nightmare and there was no fee, he ghosted the teacher who had emailed. Bit of a shame really, given that he's figured out the true circle of life, has solved parenting despite having zero children, and even thinks he can predict the curriculum of schools in 50 years. Maybe he'll inspire some Year 11s in 2069.

As also seen on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, and heard on Radio 4’s The News Quiz.

Age guidance 14+

Alex Edelman - Just for Us

Bostonian comedian. Jew. Sweetheart.

Alex Edelman’s first show, Millennial – about very traumatic stock photos and young people - won an Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, the first show by an American to do so since 1997.

The follow-up, Everything Handed to You - about identity and the availability of plug sockets in airports - was even more acclaimed: selling out its entire Edinburgh run and garnering the second-best reviews of any comedy show at the Festival. It was also filmed in its entirety for a special called Live at the BBC, which is currently available on Netflix.

Just For Us is what comes next. Nominated for the Barry award at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, earning the prestigious Herald Angel award as well as being nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show, it’s about gorillas that can-do sign language and tribalism. Come.

WHY? ‘Boasting technical flair and a precocious authority, Edelman’s comedy manages to capture the voice of Generation Y’ Guardian

‘I fondly imagined this was what it might have been like to watch Jerry Seinfeld when he was in his early 20s. There is no greater praise than that.’ ★★★★★ Mirror

‘Every story is a precision-engineered Rolls-Royce of a routine, perfectly timed and constructed, each morsel of information released just at the right moment’ Chortle

Suitable for ages 14+ years.
