Aisling Bea & Bridget Christie's Edinburgh Works in Progress
Aisling Bea "C'est La Bea"
Highly anticipated debut stand-up show from Irish comedian and winner of So You Think You're Funny? 2012. Featuring joke filled tales of life, death, hip-hop, raving and riding. The Independent's "One To Watch",, an Amused Moose semi-finalist, as seen on Jack Dee's Don't Sit In The Front Row (Sky), Dead Boss (BBC3), Cardinal Burns (E4) and Russell Howard's Good News (BBC3). "Hilarious", Huffington Post, "Already making waves on TV as an actor ... Bea's certainly got an eye for a good gag that could lead to a very promising stand-up career’ (Guardian). 'Eh... Please come.' (Aisling herself).
Bridget Christie "A Bic For Her"
'Most original act I’ve seen for years' (Harry Hill). Star of BBC Radio 4’s Bridget Christie Minds the Gap, BBC2’s It’s Kevin, and Comedy Central’s Alternative Comedy Experience, starts the day by eroticising waterproof jackets and roller coasters, ridiculing biro manufacturers, and destroying the patriarchy. And all at 11:10 am in a Gloucester accent. Includes some shouting. The only stand-up to have been billed alongside both Lionel Blair and Naomi Wolf. 'Has real political bite … brilliant.' (Telegraph). 'Hits highs of genuine brilliance' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Avant-garde comedian of prodigious talent' (Guardian). 'Utterly entertaining'(Times). 'Hilarious'(Observer).
