A chance to see two brilliant comedians do their latest shows just ahead of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!
From winning Chortle Best Newcomer and Hackney Empire New Act Awards in 2012, Pat has gone on to become a perenially daft presence on the alternative comedy scene in the UK and internationally. His own style of “controlled silliness” (Fest mag) has led him to appearances on Dave's One Night Stand, Sky Arts, BBC3, BBC Radio 1, 4 (The Now Show) and 4 Extra. As well as two national tour support slots for Ardal Ohanlon and Nina Conti, Pat has written and performed 4 critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe Festival solo shows, and appeared internationally in Belgium, Switzerland, France, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, The Netherlands, and Peterborough.
Nominee Best Show, Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival 2016
“Cahill strikes an unlikely balance between stretched absurdity and sophisticated introspection... This is one of the strangest and most satisfying hours of the Festival.” ***** Edfestmag
**** The Skinny
“Wonderfully weird” The Guardian
“True star quality” Evening Standard
A rare chance to see newly crowned WINNER of the 2019 Musical Comedy Awards. Ever been given unsolicited advice? In this show, Katie explores all the awful advice she's ever received, by doing the exact opposite. Expect incredible (very hand-made) costumes, chaos, and some pumping original choons in this high-octane romp through Katie’s synapses; enjoy observational comedy from a completely different angle.
“Mind blowing” (Herts Advertiser)
“Inventive and hilarious” (Broadway Baby)
“Always original and entertaining” (Female Arts Magazine)
