Edinburgh Preview Double Bill: Lucy Porter & Ross Smith
Lucy Porter: Be Prepared
Fringe favourite Lucy returns with another fantastic stand-up show.
At Brownies, Lucy thought she’d be prepared for anything as long as she had her emergency 10p for a phone box, and knew how to tie a Fisherman’s knot. Life turned out to be slightly more complicated than Brown Owl let on.
Recent TV includes Would I Lie to You, QI and Impossible, she’s a regular on Radio 4’s News Quiz and The Now Show. Limited run, book early!
‘A treat from start to finish’ The Herald
‘Impeccably punch-lined anecdotes… genuinely delightful‘ The Telegraph
Ross Smith : Crying/shame
Boys don’t cry- but should they? Ross Smith can’t remember the last time he did and is unsure if he still can. In Crying/Shame Smith asks why it’s good to cry, for emotional well being and comedy awards. And why he is nowhere near reaching either. Hopefully it will all end in tears.
Crying/Shame is the eagerly anticipated sophomore hour from emerging talent Ross Smith. ‘One of my favourite new acts’ (Joel Dommett), ‘hilarious and original- unlike this quote’ (Nish Kumar), ‘laugh out loud gags cleverly set up- go and see Ross Smith’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond the Joke).
