EDINBURGH PREVIEWS: OMID DJALILI & CHRISTOPHER BLISS

Omid Djalili (Work in Progress)

Legendary festival favourite, stand-up comedian, film and television star Omid Djalili returns for eight shows only. Intelligent, sometimes provocative and always entertaining. His stand-up is a hugely energetic and captivating comedy masterclass. Multi award-winner and as seen in Mamma Mia 2 and on Celebrity Apprentice. Soon to be seen in His Dark Materials. ‘Did someone say national treasure?’ (Metro). 'One of the most joyfully smart, stimulating and entertaining comedians this country has' (Telegraph). 'Belly laughs with a subtle blend of mainstream gags and subversive twinkle' (Sunday Times).

Christopher Bliss: The Man Who Turns Wives Into Widows (Preview)

 Rob Carter’s cult hit creation is back with a glossy revamp of his 2016 debut show. Christopher Bliss is Shropshire’s greatest drivel-merchant. He’s tackled novels, he’s conquered theatre, now he’s back to show you his most ambitious project: live cinema. This is an action-packed tale of wives, widows and everything in-between. As seen on Siblings (BBC), Peep Show and Fresh Meat (Channel 4). 'This is how character comedy should be done' **** (Chortle.co.uk). 'One of this year’s hidden treasures… consistently, pant-wettingly funny' **** (Fest)
