Following a break of two years, Komedia are excited to announce the return of their Edinburgh Preview Season. Running 3rd to 28th July the programme features double-bills from thirty comedians ranging from big names to up-and-coming acts.
Master of nonsense John-Luke Roberts returns on Sun 3 Jul with new show ‘A World Just Like Our Own, But…’ about the worlds we don’t live in, which is secretly actually about the one we do. Joining him is Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and NHS doctor Kwame Asante, who presents a hilarious, witty and heartfelt introspective on the place of religion in modern life, modern love and modern medicine in ‘Living in Sin’.
‘Best Breakthrough Act’ (Chortle 2020) Jess Fostekew explores private things, public things and trying to wrap your big sexy arms around time to keep it still in ‘Wench’ on Thu 7 Jul alongside Host of ‘The Guilty Feminist’ podcast Alison Spittle, with ‘Wet’, in which she realises she’s an outwardly nice person who lives for confrontation.
Edinburgh Best Newcomer nominee Sara Barron presents a blistering new hour of stand-up on smart sex, dumb kids, conception, rejection and wine-in-a-can in ‘Hard Feelings’ on Wed 27 Jul. Also on the bill, award-winning writer, actor and podcaster Rob Auton brings you a comedy/theatre/spoken word show about crowds in ‘The Crowd Show’.
The “Extremely funny” (Scotsman) Sophie Duker’s ‘queer, unhinged, sexy, chaotic show ‘Hag’ is on Thu 28 Jul alongside a high-energy barrage of the most jokes you’ve ever heard humanely fit into one stand-up show in Glenn Moore’s ‘Will You Still Need Me, Will You Still Feed Me, Glenn I’m Sixty Moore’.
