Edinburgh Preview Double Bill: Bilal Zafar & John Lynn
Bilal Zafar: Lovebots
Best Newcomer nominee 2016 and Hackney Empire (NATYS) winner is back with a brand-new show! Social media has been taken over by bots spreading hate, fear and influencing how we vote. In Lovebots, Bilal has made his own bots to fight back, except these bots only want to spread love and compassion. As seen/heard on BBC Three, Channel 4, MTV, BBC iPlayer, and BBC Radio 4.
‘Witty and absorbing… highly entertaining’ (Times).
‘Delivers big laughs’ (Guardian).
‘Fascinating and hilarious in equal measure’ (i-D).
‘A natural storyteller with a very likeable stage presence’ ***** (Shortcom.co.uk).
John Lynn: Great Intentions
Lynn believes himself a modest man but that he shouldn’t be. From helping the homeless, to trying to ‘find himself’ by volunteering to teach at an orphanage in Cambodia, to climbing Kilimanjaro for charity, John has always caused unintentional chaos, carnage and turmoil. He claims good intentions but this is a man who revelled in his Dad’s wedding speech inadvertently making his sisters wedding look like a KKK rally, he still laughs when he thinks of his brother hiding his ring on his wedding night for safety and never seeing it again. John isn’t a prick but maybe he’s a bit of a dick..
