Nick Helm:  One Man Mega Myth

5 stars from The List

**** Chortle 

"He certainly never gives less than 100 per cent in an hour that has the whiff of a victory lap about it." **** The Evening Standard

Time Out's Top Ten Pick Of The Fringe

Laugh Out London have recommended Nick Helm: One Man Mega Myth in their list of the Best stand-up comedy shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013

"With his One Man Mega Myth about to blast its way onto the Fringe audience’s collective psyche, it’s time for Edinburgh to truly brace itself..."

Nick Helm is also one of Mr Hyde's picks...

"Nick Helm's Edinburgh shows have consistently pushed the idea of stand-up to the limits, combining spectacle, tragedy, sweat - and, officially, one of the best one-liners of recent years. His new show tops the lot." - Sunday Times

 "Pretty f*cking amazing....a true comedy daredevil" TIME OUT ****

 The Times Critics Choice on Saturday 17th August 2013

Stephen Carlin

A fantastic article in the Glasgow Evening Times, featuring Stephen Carlin, talking about his new show that he'll be taking to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe next month

"I suggest you take a very minor gamble on spending an hour of your life in Stephen Carlin’s company, if nothing else you’ll be guaranteed a few good laughs" **** The Edinburgh Reporter

Another lovely article with Stephen Carlin in The Herald Scotland, talking about his new Edinburgh Fringe show Gambling Man...


EastEnd Cabaret

"The naughtiest girls in town, EastEnd Cabaret write funny dirty songs full of outrageous anatomical detail. Inspired by Brecht and the brothels of Bangkok this musically talented duo have buckets of charm and put on a rip roaring show." 

EastEnd Cabaret: Dirty Talk is one of The Scotman's 50 must-see events at this years Edinburgh Festival!

EastEnd Cabaret in ThreeWeeks Magazine

EastEnd Cabaret on the cover of ThreeWeeks Magazine!

EastEnd Cabaret: Dirty Talk
"The duo are wonderfully eccentric and painfully sharp despite Victor / Victoria’s knack with Rohypnol. Each song in Dirty Talk brings about a new wave of outrageous lyricism (think Roald Dahl on Viagra) for an exciting, if sexually confusing, evening of cabaret." - The List

“Musically inventive and delightfully dirty as ever” **** The Scotsman

Carey Marx

Brilliant interview with Carey Marx for London is Funny...

Carey Marx: Intensive Carey on Chortle's The best medicine: Edinburgh 10 x10: Shows about health issues...

4 stars from The List today for Carey Marx: Intensive Carey

Carey Marx: Intensive Carey 
"A must for those who feel they have had a tame festival."

"As a master painter uses paint for his art, Marx uses his words and writing to paint a picture as vividly yet his impish sense of humour is never far from the surface." **** One4Review 

“So funny I nearly suffocated laughing" Arthur Smith, The Stage

"Wonderfully honest... Pleasingly dark" **** The Arts Desk

**** FestMag

", sweet, cheeky, cynical, romantic and rude as he ever was" **** Chortle

"...this show is a reminder of what a truly fantastic comic he is. It's full of funnies..." **** London Is funny

'This is a brilliant, deeply personal performance'. **** Jay Richardson, The Scotsman.

Michael Fabbri

"Fabbri's distinctively off-kilter views and easy shifting of gears between bewilderment and acute perception is effective...An entertaining hour" - Chortle 

Paul F Taylor

"Brilliantly funny nonsense..." **** The List

Lloyd Griffith

“Griffith in particular was absolutely outstanding… Generally a very funny man. Griff Rees Jokes is a gem that shouldn’t go unseen.” Broadway Baby

It’s clear from outset the Lloyd Griffith has star quality… You can’t help but laugh out loud along with him. Intensely likeable…” **** Three Weeks
