It’s that time of year again folks, Fringe season is well and truly upon us and the events are coming in thick and fast. Whilst sadly, we can’t take The Cat’s Back to Edinburgh, we can bring Edinburgh to The Cat’s Back.
So with that said, in the run-up to Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this Friday (that’s the 9th of April) we invite you to a night of laughter, debauchery and all round joviality as we bring four of the hottest acts going to preview some brand new material!
JUST THESE, PLEASE
Just These, Please are “an exciting foursome” (London Theatre 1) presenting new, charming and unusually traditional sketch comedy. They write, edit and perform as an ensemble and, when buying things, always place them on the counter and say “Just These, Please”. Following their full-length show at the VAULT Festival earlier this year, they are making their Edinburgh Fringe debut at the Gilded Balloon in Summer 2018. Click here for their teaser trailer for Hamilton UK, Britain’s answer to the smash-hit American musical.
Described by Rob Brydon as a ‘remarkable new talent’, Josh Berry is fast achieving worldwide recognition for his impressions and comedy. Going viral in 2017 with his ‘Andy Murray meets Andy Murray’ video, he has since racked up millions of views across social media and worked alongside some of the biggest names in the industry. Here’s a link to Josh’s showreel taken from his twitter, of his spot on impressions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HV-33Gsm0Y4
Nick’s captivating and inventive style has marked him out as one to watch. He took his debut solo show to the Underbelly for the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe and also performed in Adam Riches’ Coach Coach at the Pleasance and Soho Theatre. He’s reached the semi-finals of So You Think You’re Funny, beaten the Gong at The Comedy Store, beaten the Blackout at Up the Creek, and won the New Act Night at the Comedy Café. You can watch the highlights of Nick’s show, Spencer, here.
“Spencer Percival has one claim to fame. He’s the only British Prime Minister ever to be assassinated. Unfortunately, no one’s heard of him. Now comedian and actor Nick Hall tells his story.”
Sukh is a comedian and writer who is blazing her way into the Uk Comedy scene. She regularly performs stand up around London and the UK, including performances at the Alchemy Festival and BBC Asian Network’s, sold out show at the Watford Palace Theatre. Follow this link for a short clip of Sukh’s take on the pros and cons of having to move in with your parents.
These acts are really great and are definitely not to be missed. So that’s this Friday the 9th of April at The Cat’s Back. (Address down below)
Tickets are £5 on the door and are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. So it’s best to arrive early to avoid being the only one who wasn’t there, and feeling awkward when everyone else comes down into the bar and starts laughing about that part of the sketch you just wouldn’t get because you had to be there.
We hope to see Friday!
