WINNER of Best Show at the Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2013.

Brand new work in progress show from the stupid idiot and multi award-winning stand-up, Guardian columnist and author of A Book for Her. Bridget is going to die, but what will she leave behind? This and many other things will be discussed, including bigots, the Tories, Motörhead vibrators, aging, water massages and legacies. 'Current queen of crusading UK comedy' (Guardian). 'A cherishable comedian' (Telegraph). 'Queen of satire' (Evening Standard). 'A kind of genius' (Jon Ronson). 'A cool, clear glass of sane' (Caitlin Moran). 'Laser focused and brilliantly sustained' (Independent). 'A revelation' (Observer). 'Very funny' (Radio Times).“’Most original act I’ve seen for years” – Harry Hill

“Avant-garde comedian of prodigious talent” – Guardian

“Utterly entertaining”- The Times

“Hilarious” – The Observer

***** – The Independent, ***** – The Skinny


A real treat for true comedy connoisseurs, Ed Aczel has won praise from critics and comedy fans alike for is unique and downbeat brand of stand up.

Ever thought your relationship with your next-door neighbour is in fact foreign policy? No. Well that's lesson one... If we all practised good manners, what a lovely world we would live in. See how this relates to the current global maelstrom, whatever that is. No Aczel show would be complete without a prediction of the forthcoming apocalypse; this one’s no different. Come along – it'll probably be fine – remember just think peace for a bit guys... yeah? ‘Dead-pan dynamo… very funny’ **** (Mirror). ‘Still the master of the genre’ **** (Scotsman).

The New Yorker described his 2008 show as “one of the strangest, and finest, hours of live comedy I’d ever seen”. He’s one of the most original and brilliant acts on the circuit.

“Britain’s greatest entertainer” ★★★★★ -Time Out

“Perhaps Britain’s greatest living anti-comedian” – The Guardian

“Aczel turns unprofessionalism into an artform” ★★★★ – The Times
