Esther Manito: Crusade

As heard on BBC Radio 4, Esther is an exciting British-Lebanese comedian
Has history taught us nothing? Crusades don't work! So You Think You're Funny finalist 2017 and co-author of Don't Panic I'm Islamic brings you her debut hour. Esther takes you on a whirlwind tour of what life is like when you can't meet the expectations of your identity. From battling comments online to facing head-on confrontations in person, she's not sure she wants to battle the crusade! 'A lot of hair and a lot of talent' (BeyondTheJoke.co.uk). 'Gritty reality... Esther tells it like it is' (FunnyWomen.com).

“Esther Manito: Lebanese British woman, wife, mother, incredible comedian.” Edfest Magazine

“A strong debut show about identity….A comedian with keen instincts, and punchlines often delivered with a nice turn of phrase and a vivid metaphor.” Fest Mag

“Manito is an engaging and promising comic who will staunchly stand up for what she believes, and that alone makes her an interesting proposition.” - Chortle

Goodbye Mr President : President Obonjo

President Obonjo, is an up-and-coming, and increasingly successful, stand-up comedian. As the uber-confident, self-appointed dictator of Lafta Republic, he has been leading a covert comedy revolution to become the first President to take the UK comedy industry by storm. This, his third Edinburgh show, is a short, impactful story of friendship between an African dictator and an Englishman. 'President Obonjo has everything you’d expect of a tinpot African dictator… a great comic construct' (Chortle.co.uk). 'A fascinating, bewildering and painfully funny experience' (FringeGuru.com). Hilarious hour in the company of an African dictator. #justiceforobonjo
