EDINBURGH PREVIEW SEASON
Every year, thousands of comics bring comedy shows to the internationally known Edinburgh Fringe Festival. But those shows need to be tweaked and refined, honed and perfected...and that's happening at Laugh Train Home. Don't miss this behind-the-scenes unique opportunity to see these Work in Progress shows. This is how live stand-up comedy is put together.
Laugh Train Home will be previewing shows throughout June and July - check out our lineups below...
Abandoman (Work in Progress)
As seen on Alan Carr’s Happy Hour, 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, The Stephen K Amos Show Abandoman will be entertaining us with some of his new material.
Michael Fabbri: Rebooted (Preview)
Michael Fabbri, Finalist, C4’s So You Think You’re Funny will be performing a preview of his new Edinburgh show Rebooted.
Omid Djalili (Work in Progress)
Legendary festival favourite, stand-up comedian, film and television star Omid Djalili returns for eight shows only. Intelligent, sometimes provocative and always entertaining. His stand-up is a hugely energetic and captivating comedy masterclass. Multi award-winner and as seen in Mamma Mia 2 and on Celebrity Apprentice. Soon to be seen in His Dark Materials. ‘Did someone say national treasure?’ (Metro). 'One of the most joyfully smart, stimulating and entertaining comedians this country has' (Telegraph). 'Belly laughs with a subtle blend of mainstream gags and subversive twinkle' (Sunday Times).
Adam Hess: My Grandad Has a Fringe (Preview)
The star of Tonight at the Palladium (ITV), Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and Live from the BBC is back with, without doubt, his funniest show yet. Expect a lot of good stand-up comedy and also a story about getting stuck in a lift for 25 hours. Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee. 'For high quality gags per minute there is no better comedian on the Fringe' **** (Independent). 'A breathless race through some of the Fringe's strongest punchlines' **** (Skinny).
Steve Bugeja: Single Mum (Preview)
Steve helped his single mum find her Prince Charming all while learning his times tables. (He was seven). The host of Radio 4’s Economics with Subtitles returns following four critically-acclaimed shows. As seen on The Russell Howard Hour (Sky One), The Zoe Ball Show (ITV1), Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), Love Island Aftersun (ITV2) and Comedy Up Late (ABC TV) at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. 'Steve's a charming, likeable stand-up with a set packed with gags' (Sunday Post). 'An eye for comic detail that's all his own' (Guardian). 'Plentiful jokes and compelling storytelling' (Scotsman).
Sarah Keyworth: Pacific (Preview)
Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee for Best Newcomer and winner of the Herald Angel Award returns with a brand-new hour of comedy about the little things, the smallest details, the fixed and distinct aspects that make up what we definitively are, how we expressly think and who we unambiguously love. 'Powerful, poignant and achingly funny stuff' ***** (Herald). 'It's refreshing to see something so generous and outward-looking' (Chortle.co.uk). 'The most hilarious visual images' **** (Scotsman). 'An absolute gem' **** (Evening Standard).
Josie Long: Tender (Preview)
Three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and very hard to pin down indie-underdog-nightmare Josie Long is back with a new show for the first time in five years. It's about the mind-bending intensity of new motherhood, but mostly about kindness, gentleness, and joy. All in all, the edgiest thing you will see this Fringe. The aim is for you to come out of it feeling optimistic about the future, although that's a big ask. At the very least there will be some really silly voices, and that’s not nothing. **** 'Brilliantly evocative, an original and unflagging spirit' (Times).
Erich McElroy: Radical Centrist (Preview)
With politics moving to extremes and into every aspect of our lives, Erich McElroy finds another way. The only true centrist comedian at the Fringe, Erich is rising up to demand incremental change and reasoned debate. He’s crossing over the left/right divide in a way that’ll make you stop – or at least slow down. Heard on BBC's Breaking the News, Radio 4’s Moral Maze and seen on BBC Breakfast, Good Morning Britain, and Sky News. 'Stand-up at its best' ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). 'The pace never dips and the jokes land every time' **** (TheWeeReview.com).
Jarred Christmas: A Funny Hour (Work in Progress)
Comedy. Comedy. Comedy. Comedy. Comedy. Comedy. Comedy. Comedy. Comedy. Comedy. Comedy. Comedy. And some storytelling.
Join New Zealand sensation and Star of the stand-up circuit for a rip-roaring hour of jokes and stories. A master of audience interaction, consummate raconteur and all round brilliant comedian.
As seen on Russell Howard’s Good News, 8 out of 10 Cats, Mock The Week, Argumental, The Comedy Store and much much more.
Daisy Earl: Fairy Elephant (Preview)
Hotly anticipated debut from promising newcomer. Winner of Scottish Comedian of the Year and Chortle's Best Newcomer. Daisy woke up on her 30th Birthday deeply dissatisfied. Why isn't she thinner, more successful, and blonde? And why does that cow on Instagram have it all? This year is going to be different; get sober, stop crying in public and for god's sake get a boyfriend! This is one woman's attempt to change everything about herself: 'Impressive. Vulnerability but awakening steeliness' (Scotsman). 'Equal parts deprecation and defiant attitude. Hilarious' (Chortle.co.uk).
Lucy Porter: Be Prepared (preview)
Fringe favourite Lucy returns with another fantastic stand-up show. At Brownies, Lucy thought she'd be prepared for anything as long as she had her emergency 10p for a phone box and knew how to tie a fisherman's knot. Life turned out to be slightly more complicated than Brown Owl let on. TV appearances include Would I Lie to You, QI and Impossible.
Chris Kent (Work in Progress)
Irish comedian Chris Kent, described as Compelling storyteller, truly surprising, beautifully delivered’ by The Scotsman will be performing a preview of his new Edinburgh Show. As seen on Russell Howard’s Stand up Central.
Ivo Graham: The Game of Life (Preview)
The time for faff is over: has Big Daddy Graham got the skillz (anecdotes/banter/topical asides) to pay da billz (gas/water/electric)? More hilariously anxious blather from one of the most hilariously anxious blatherers in the business. As spotted on Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Live from the BBC, Cats Does Countdown, and more.
John Hastings: 10 John Hastings I Hate About You (Preview)
Comedy Central's John Hastings started from the bottom (Canada), then moved to the bottom (Britain) and has found a new bottom (America). Currently bottoming out, John is back to talk about the highs (read: none) and lows (read: many) of the past year. From losing his grandfather to open relationships to borrowing money from his mom, come watch John hit rock-bottom both figuratively and literally in his dream basement venue. TW(ats welcome): Mega LOLz and most likely toilet humour. ***** (Mirror). **** (Chortle.co.uk).
Tom Stade: You Aint Seen Nothing Yet (Preview)
All new material from prolific Canadian superstar. The kids have moved out and it's the dawn of a new era! Tom's embracing change with his usual spirit and vigour; he can draw lessons from the past but he'll be damned if he lives in it. What's coming is way better than what has gone! 30 years on the comedy frontline and this comedy legend remains as engaging and innovative as ever. 'Swagger of a rock star, charisma of a talk show host. Hilarious. See for yourself before the secret gets out' (Warrington Guardian).
Robyn Perkins: Mating Selection (Preview)
On August 14, 2018, Robyn Perkins participated in a dating show in front of a live audience. Her experience led her to question human morality and the social constructs of present-day dating, with a scientific twist. Robyn is known for her 'confident, charming and relatable personality' (EdFestMag.com), which allows her to delve into complex and uncomfortable territory. How do social constructs change how we date? What is the role of morality in attraction?
PLEASE NOTE: We bring the best acts from the UK. But they are also real people. As such, it is rare, but our line-ups are subject to change - family emergencies and last minute TV filming does happen. We will tweet and Facebook any changes we have.
