John Hastings: 10 John Hastings I Hate About You (Preview)
Comedy Central's John Hastings started from the bottom (Canada), then moved to the bottom (Britain) and has found a new bottom (America). Currently bottoming out, John is back to talk about the highs (read: none) and lows (read: many) of the past year. From losing his grandfather to open relationships to borrowing money from his mom, come watch John hit rock-bottom both figuratively and literally in his dream basement venue. TW(ats welcome): Mega LOLz and most likely toilet humour. ***** (Mirror). **** (Chortle.co.uk).
Daisy Earl: Fairy Elephant (Preview)
Hotly anticipated debut from promising newcomer. Winner of Scottish Comedian of the Year and Chortle's Best Newcomer. Daisy woke up on her 30th Birthday deeply dissatisfied. Why isn't she thinner, more successful, and blonde? And why does that cow on Instagram have it all? This year is going to be different; get sober, stop crying in public and for god's sake get a boyfriend! This is one woman's attempt to change everything about herself: 'Impressive. Vulnerability but awakening steeliness' (Scotsman). 'Equal parts deprecation and defiant attitude. Hilarious' (Chortle.co.uk)
