ASHLEY STORRIE: ADULTING
Scotland's favourite funny girl and viral internet sensation Ashley Storrie returns to Edinburgh with a brand-new show about not growing up. With the world most likely ending quite soon, Ashley believes we should all have a laugh and be a bit more honest particularly about the myth of "adulthood"... nobody really grows up, we're just great at pretending!
'A total revelation' (Dawn French).
'With funny witty one-liners which are as hilarious as they are true' (TheWeeReview.com).
'Breakout star of the Scottish comedy scene' (Skinny).
MARK WATSON: THE INFINITE SHOW
Our own Wangabout host Mark Watson brings his Edinburgh preview to his native Crouch End.
Cluster-bombed with yoghurt on Taskmaster, half-killed on The Island, Watson returns to what he's best at: being indoors. This show began as a work-in-progress in Edinburgh last year and now makes its official premiere. It's about empathy. Ninety-nine percent of the world's population is made up of other people – why can't we understand them? One of the Fringe's most beloved and thinnest acts offers some suggestions. Complete sell-out 2014-2017.
'He sparkles with originality and verve' (Chortle.co.uk).
'Arrive early for the longest queue in Edinburgh' (List).
'Hugely entertaining, craftsmanlike, remarkable' (Telegraph).
