Take a chill pill! Stay calm! Relax! I know, the exclamation marks aren't helping!

A silly, sharp and uplifting comedy hour that mixes spiky stand-up, soundscapes and guided meditation from a profoundly unrelaxed man. 'Attuned to the human psyche' **** (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Endorphin-milking titterfest' **** (MumbleComedy.net). 'Very Silly' (ThreeWeeks). 'Very funny' (John Kearns). As heard on BBC Radio 4....

Shaggers was born at the Edinburgh Fringe in the August of 2008. ​ Originally it was just meant to run for one season as a fun late show at the Laughing Horse Free Festival with all sorts of comedians talking about that most noble of pursuits, shagging. However, it was decided after full rooms every night, that Shaggers would continue on to the Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy festival in 2009. From there it has gone on to have sell-out shows in theatres and venues up and down the UK, in Germany, Singapore, Malaysia and all over Australia. ----------...

Ireland's own Duffy Connors is taking his one man show 'Sex Me I'm Irish' to Edinburgh. Through his probably too honest one liners about his romantic life you can piece together the clues as to why he has been forced to do an Edinburgh show in search of someone decidedly less picky. Is publicly begging for sex the best way to find a woman? Probably not but the odd man is out of ideas. Duffy's style is a wonderfully contradictory blend of smugness and self deprecation leaving his dates and audiences to wonder if he loves himself too much or not enough. ...

YouTube wormholes. Jesus Christ. What's real? It will all be in there one way or another. Andy was shortlisted in the Musical Comedy A...
