LAUREN PATTISON at THEATRE@41 MONKGATE
👉 🎟️  TICKETS ON SALE NOW 🎟️ 👈

DOORS 7.00, SHOW 7.30

Following a whirlwind couple of years of awards, nominations, sell-out shows and international touring, proceeded by a lengthy period of watching the world unravel, Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee Lauren Pattison is back with a brand-new show. She is reluctant to say what it is about because if the last year has taught her anything, it’s life can change fast … it is what it is. Let’s just say sometimes you need to fall apart to rebuild into exactly who you were meant to be.

As seen on Stand Up for Live Comedy (BBC), Comedy Central at the Comedy Store, ‘Roast Battle’ and supporting Katherine Ryan on tour.

JESSICA FOSTEKEW at THE CRESCENT
👉 🎟️  TICKETS ON SALE NOW 🎟️ 👈

DOORS 7.00, SHOW 7.30

A show about sexy things (awkward), private things (oh no) and a woman trying to sit on the face of time to keep it still (hot, right?). You’ve seen Jess on Live at the Apollo, QI and on Harry Hill’s Clubnite amongst other TV shows. She’s a regular co-host of The Guilty Feminist Podcast, the host and creator of The Hoovering Podcast and you hear her regularly on BBC R4’s News Quiz and Now Show.

Jess was nominated for the Dave Edinburgh Comedy Award – Best Show 2019 with her last show Hench, and she won Best Show and Best Breakthrough Act in the Chortle Awards 2020. Photo Credit: Matt Stronge

Saturday 17th September
MARK WATSON at THE CRESCENT
👉 🎟️  TICKETS ON SALE NOW 🎟️ 👈

DOORS 7.00, SHOW 7.30

We’ve all had some pondering to do about the fragility of life recently, but don’t worry, skinny national treasure Mark Watson has it covered. At 41, he’s halfway through his days on earth, according to the life expectancy calculator app he paid £1.49 for. That life is in the best shape in living memory… but one problem remains, and it
really is a huge one.

Spiritual enquiry meets high-octane observational comedy as the ‘Taskmaster’ survivor, multi-award-winner and “No More Jockeys” cult leader attempts to cram a couple of years of pathological overthinking into an evening of stand-up. Maybe we’ll even solve the huge problem. Doubt it, though.

★★★★★ “Quite unlike anything else I’ve seen in almost 20 years of
covering the Fringe…witty, warm, perfectly judged” Telegraph

★★★★“He always displays an innate understanding of what the audience wants…creating a bespoke experience for every gig, an added flourish to a strong hour of stand-up” Chortle

★★★★ “This is a stand-up operating at the very top of his game” Independent
