Doors 7:45 PM - £3.00 Dom and Tom proffer to the public their works-in-progress pre-Edinburgh Fringe, two solo character comedy crackers (we hope...). We know all the words...just not necessarily in the right order.
DOM O'KEEFE: FREE WILLY FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE WHALE
Dom O'Keefe does character comedy about a massive whale escaping from a prison. 'A supreme talent ... Quite simply the funniest show I have seen at the Fringe' ★★★★★ (EdFringe Review) ‘Charismatic and charming’ ★★★★ (Broadway Baby) 'A rare delight to laugh this much' (Oxford Student)
. TOM SKELTON: BLIND EYE SPY 2023.
Post-Brexit, MI6’s budget has been slashed, but they need a new agent in Berlin. Out of work comedian Tom Skelton has ‘seasoned abilities as an improviser’ (Chortle) and making things up as he goes along, speaks ‘ein Bisschen Deutsch’, and is registered blind – and who would suspect a blind spy? A Le-Carre-On character comedy thriller unfolds as Tom wanders blindly into Berlin’s dark underbelly of espionage, betrayal and currywurst. ‘A wonderful narrator’ (Times).Inventive and very enjoyable’ ★★★★ (Mirror). ‘An extremely clever one-man show that cries out for a bigger stage’ ★★★★ (Ed Fest Mag).‘Funny, varied and inherently cheesy, but also full of candid vulnerability…sends you back out into the world with a spring in your step’ (Chortle).
