Howl Comedy presents:
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 stand-up game show. If you remember MSN and video game soundtracks from the 90s, then you won't forget this show (round of applause everyone for that filthy tag line). With the country (nay, the world?) more than ever feeling nostalgic for "the good old days", Daniel Nicholas, the 'Prince of Peculiar' (GreatCentral.co.uk), takes you on a journey to work out whether nostalgia is actually a good thing. Featuring a game where everyone has to pretend to be sick and gets fed Jaffa Cakes.
Plus your MC LORNA PRICHARD
BBC Sesh star Lorna was a TV news presenter before turning to stand up. Since swapping headlines for punchlines, she has performed at Edinburgh and Leicester Comedy Festivals, won a comedy award in San Francisco and hosted many events - from comedy nights, festivals and car rallies to a cat carnival!
"A warm and natural MC who puts the audience at ease." – Nick Page
"A really good comedian." – Lloyd Langford
