Richard Gadd, Mat Ewins, Reuben Kaye

Richard Gadd

Richard is a multi-award-winning writer-performer and actor. His incredible show, MONKEY SEE, MONKEY DO, won the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Show at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The show subsequently had several sell-out runs at London’s Soho Theatre, toured the UK, had a run at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, was nominated for the 2017 Barry Award and was broadcast on Comedy Central.

Matt Ewins

In 2017 Matt was nominated for the coveted lastminute.com Edinburgh comedy award for Best Show with his most recent offering, Mat Ewins: Presents Adventureman 7 – The Return Of Adventureman, which he also took to London’s Soho Theatre for an extended run this autumn. Currently Mat has a number of television and radio projects in development and is also working on a new solo show for Edinburgh 2018. We also hope he will have at least one poster or press shot this time round.

“Nothing this Fringe has made me laugh more”

Times ★★★★

Reuben Kaye

Imagine if Joan Collins, Tim Curry and Meow Meow all dropped a stack of narcotics and had an orgy… Now roll it in jewels and bathtub gin and your halfway there. In an explosion of energy, high camp, big notes and filthy humour; Reuben Kaye dominates the stage and devours his audience. With an acid wit and casual sensationalism that is simply delicious, Kaye is a dazzling phantasm of anachronistic showbiz – an explosion of sequins, lashes and teeth.

“Reuben Kaye Is A Cabaret God!”

There must be magic in the atmosphere By Benedict Lombe

Benedict Lombe from our Emerging Writers Group writes about diasporic experience. It’s 3am. I’m sitting in my room wolfing down a pack of Doritos and thinking about the night I just had. I’m also thinking – quite intensely – about who decided we needed more than one flavour of Doritos? Bro, you hit the jackpot…

Rachael Merry: The BSL access is ‘rooted in the telling of the story’

Zia Ahmed’s tender, funny, lyrical play about finding love and holding onto it with everything you have is keen to cross boundaries. Vital to the three-hander is Rachael Merry, who uses BSL interpretation to convey the poetic beauty of Ahmed’s language . Rachael talks to us about the show, language, and the role of accessibility…
