Damo’s phone was stolen. 4 weeks later, mysterious photos began to appear in his iCloud. In an attempt to find out where they were coming from, Damo began a year long search …but he never expected this.
In tracking his phone, Damo is plunged into the dark side of SMS, social dating and drug dealing…but all with hilarious consequences. Fresh from a Total Sell Out from this year’s Glasgow Comedy Festival and last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, the mad Aussie returns. This year with a true crime detective show. A case he must solve if he ever wants to see his phone again and stop the tirade which has hacked into all his other devices.

Kishore Nayar, Matt Giffen Double Edfringe previews (Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015)
Ever got locked in a loo before a blind date? Or fainted because your steak was too rich? Or spent your birthday money on a snazzy winter coat only later to see a teenage girl wearing the same one? Welcome to the life of (adult man) Kishore Nayar. ‘Conversational stand-up told expertly well’ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Definitely one to watch’ (Comedy.co.uk). ‘I thought you were very funny’ (Sarah Millican). Join him for these and other clean and light-hearted (but definitely more embarrassing) stories.
A Colombian/Irish/Englishman takes on identity, the world and why you have to try a Japanese toilet. An upbringing on a staple diet of cocaine and potatoes will take its toll, come and see what you end up with. Laughing Horse runner-up and Amused Moose finalist 2012, Hong Kong Comedy Competition finalist 2013, Perth Fringe World Critics Choice winner 2015. ‘Absolutely hilarious, watch him before he gets snapped up by TV’ (Mark Dolan). ‘A controlled explosion of energy, all so enjoyable’ (Chortle.co.uk).
