Carl Donnelly : Bad Man Tings 9.45pm ( 60min show) £8
Join twice Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated Carl Donnelly for an all-new hour of funnies as he takes us through his thoughts on reaching the ripe old age of 34, the age that is statistically the happiest of your life. Following the mess that was his late twenties and early thirties (involving divorce, depression, hallucinogens and worse) Carl has now seemingly found peace in being a vegetable planting, self-hating liberal with a wide array of useless kitchen utensils and is trying to work out which life he prefers. ‘Observational genius’ (Guardian).
Sara Pascoe is a British writer, stand-up comedian and actress. She has appeared in a number of television programmes – Campus, Live At The Apollo, QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week among others.Sara’s stand-up is influenced by her joint favourite heroes, Jodie Marsh and Winston Churchill.
Her recent book " Animal: The Autobiography of a Female Body" has received rave reviews
‘Always intelligent and occasionally exquisite’ (The Independent)
‘Pascoe uses erudite references as just one strand of an offbeat worldview, offset by moments of gloriously deliberate dumbness and delivered with nothing less than full-megawatt charisma’ (The Guardian)
‘… defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible’ (Evening Standard).
