Olga Koch: If/Then (WIP)
Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Olga Koch is back! Ahead of her BBC Radio 4 special, the acclaimed stand-up tells a love story through the medium of computer programming (which she studied at university, and, like, barely ever brings up). In her feminist investigation into what happens when we can't separate love and technology, Olga will teach you how to code and explore what happens when our expectations for love, happiness and Michael Bublé no longer compute. Directed by Charlie Dinkin. ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). **** (Telegraph). **** (Skinny). **** (List). **** (TheArtsDesk.com).
Jenny Bede: The Musical
Bede always worried that her classical training in musical theatre stopped her being seen as a proper comedian, serious actor, or decent human being. However, much like nationalism and Greggs, musical theatre is having a bit of a moment, and, always the fair weather friend, Jenny wants in on the action.
Join the award-winning musical comic (as seen on BBC2, BBC3, ITV, Netflix, Channel 4 and E4) as she attempts to double down on her musical roots, write her Hamilton, and seal her fate. 'Absolutely set on a collision course with stardom' ***** (Mirror). 'Consistently hilarious; a unique delight' **** (ThreeWeeks).
