Clapham Comedy Club @ Bread & Roses : Imran Yusuf, David Mills : Double Edinburgh Fringe Festival Preview MC Sion James & Free Lollipops 25% Donated to Stroke Association Charity
STAR of Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow , Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer Nominee
“Imran Yusuf’s show heralds the birth of a new comedy star” Time Out ‘Sharp, passionate and uplifting’ ★ ★ ★ ★ Telegraph
Everyone is offended, everyone is a victim, no one is happy. A show for bleeding heart liberals and angry disenfranchised victims. A show for good guys, bad guys and those who know better. Woe is me, the pariah. I am not to blame, that is the fault of others whom serve me to overlook my own faults.
25% Donated to The Stroke Association Charity
Smart, sharp, laugh-out-loud comedy for adults sick of being scolded by celebrities and policed by children. Brexit, Trump, Meghan Markle, Hollywood dementia – Mills breaks it all down and gets you through the coming apocalypse feeling dynamite! ‘A comedic anglerfish, he lures his audience in with deceptive warmth before pouncing with incisive wit’ **** (Fest). ‘A superior act. Politics to surrealism… an hour in his company is an indulgent delight’ **** (Chortle.co.uk).
