Edinburgh Preview Double Bill: Phil Nichol & Peter Brush
Phil Nichol: Too Much
‘Too Much’ follows the rollercoaster ride of Phil’s hilarious relationship with the modern world. And what a confounding, hilarious and messed up world it is. It’s too much.
The planet is messed up, society has devolved, mankind is hopeless, vegans are right, you aren’t supposed to punch facists, the left are self-righteous morons, everyone is a selfish prick, Phil’s a bleeding hypocrite. It’s all too much. Too much.
Ask yourself this, what kind of person ends up-
-Naked on The Weakest Link?
-Taking two 75 year olds to Glastonbury?
-Arrested for quoting Derek and Clive on a Virgin Train?
-High on Ecstasy in the back of a police car in Lancaster?
-Surviving a Rocket attack in Kandahar, Afghanistan?
-With his nose broken by a Royal Marine in Thailand?
-Listening to his 90 year old mom tell him how madly in love with his father she is?
Phil Nichol. That’s who.
‘Too Much’ takes an unflinching look at aging, recognition, mental health, values, norms, patience, love, everything and conkers. Expect riotously uncomfortable anecdotes and oversharing delivered in Nichol’s unique live-wire style.
Peter Brush: Present. Tense
Awkward joke smith Peter Brush returns to the fringe with his hot takes on meditation, sexist babies, robot wives and why he’ll be donating his eyeballs to criminals after he dies.
