<p><strong><span class="caps">WINNER</span>: <span class="caps">LASTMINUTE</span>.COM <span class="caps">EDINBURGH</span> <span class="caps">COMEDY</span> <span class="caps">AWARDS</span> – <span class="caps">BEST</span> <span class="caps">NEWCOMER</span> 2016</strong></p> <p>One summer, Scott Gibson returned from a friend’s stag weekend in Blackpool and his brain exploded – he had suffered a massive brain hemorrhage. So, Scott did what any self-respecting Glaswegian man would do: he went back to bed and slept for 4 days, eventually waking up to discover he was now blind in one eye.</p> <p>Life After Death tells the story of the three weeks that changed Scott’s life forever. From Blackpool to Glasgow to the Neurology Capital of Europe (…Govan), Scott Gibson’s debut is at once a darkly hysterical and inspiring show, delivered with the trademark filthy charisma that Scott has rapidly become renowned for. <em>Life After Death</em> is a tale of love and pain, and fear and hope. It’s about overcoming insurmountable odds, and how comedy can bring you back to life.</p> <p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 60 mins<br /> <strong>Age Recommendation:</strong> 16+</p> ]]>

<p>Zoe hits the road with a brand new show after a year that has seen her appear on Live at the Apollo (BBC2), The John Bishop show (BBC1) and win the Chortle Best comic award. </p> <p>You might also recognise her from_ Alan Davies as Yet Untitled_, and her regular stints on <em>Mock the Week</em> and <em>The News Quiz</em>.<br /> Not bad for a girl who has never really felt part of the gang. She was the awkward gay kid at school with a different accent and quite a severe bout of alopecia. Never easy for a girl to fit in if she is sporting a massive comb over while harbouring secret desires for Charlies Angels (The blonde one mostly, but with a comb over, who can afford to be fussy?).</p> <p>Thankfully Zoe has reached that point in her life when the thought of actually fitting in would be utterly terrifying. She doesn’t want to be in anybody’s gang, she is now far happier being a Little Misfit.</p> <p><strong>Age Recommendation:</strong> 16+<br /> <strong>Running Time:</strong> 60 mins</p> ]]>

<p>Tamasha is one of the pioneers in British theatre of the &#8216;scratch night&#8217; &#8211; a sneak peek of script-in-hand performances of exciting new short plays in development.</p> <p>This evening features new work from four writers from Tamasha’s Developing Artist programme. The writers and pieces were selected after a call out for the best diverse new comedy writing talent. Here’s what they have in store:</p> <p><strong><em>Diversity Queen</em> by Yasmeen Khan</strong><br /> Mehreen is the diversity queen for hire who runs the go to agency for helping ethnic minorities enter the arts. During her Diversity, Integration and Engagement (D.I.E) presentation we gain a no holds barred guide to the do’s and don’ts for getting ahead. A smart one-handed play on diversity.</p> <p><strong><em>Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Elbows</em> by Olu Alakija</strong><br /> What is it with guys thinking they can go around showing off their elbows in public? Let alone their shoulders and knees… Well that’s what Kay thinks as she, and her slightly unconvinced bestie Eva put the world to rights. You’ll never look at elbows the same way again. </p> <p><strong><em>Hobnobs and Hijabs</em> by Yasmeen Khan</strong><br /> After Nazreen’s nephew secretly films her singing Kylie’s Spinning Around, she quickly becomes a viral sensation. When she’s approached by TV production company Dragon TV the future seems bright. But how real a Muslim must she become to see her name up in lights. A quirky monologue from one of this year’s Tamasha Playwrights</p> <p><strong><em>Pickled Mangos</em> by Aisha Hassan</strong><br /> It’s the day of Amina’s sister’s wedding and her mother is manically making the final preparations. But what will her mother do when Amina unveils her big secret. And will they be able to stop Mrs Khan from spilling the beans to the whole neighbourhood!?</p> <p><strong><em>Rank</em> by Anthony Khaseria</strong><br /> How should young mini cab driver Ash ask out one of his regular customers and girl of his dreams? He wasn’t planning on seeking advice from his old-school uncle Sanjeeb…but he might not have much choice in the matter. A wickedly witty two-hander. </p> <p><strong>Age Recommendation:</strong> 14+<br /> <strong>Running Time:</strong> Approx 100mins</p> ]]>

Step inside their strange alternate reality, richly inhabited by a plethora of strange and deranged characters all played by a cast who have appeared on <span class="caps">BBC</span>, E4, Comedy Central and Dave. It’s all (in the words of Josie Lawrence) ‘very funny’.</p> <p>With 24 hours left to live, this is a tale of forbidden love, a reluctant hero and raisins. In fact, this is everything you might expect from a pre-apocalyptic day in a parallel universe.</p> <p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 60 mins<br /> <strong>Age Recommendation:</strong> 16+</p> ]]>

<p>The washed-up boy band of sketch comedy are back with their first new show in four years. Now in their thirties and with no other career options they have decided to abandon their wives, jobs and in one case their child, to jump back in the gimpy saddle. Strap yourselves in for a blistering hour of mind-blowing nonsense. Edinburgh Comedy Award nominees. Chortle Award winners. Huge disappointment to their parents.</p> <p><a href="https://www.pleasance.co.uk/find-us">Pleasance Courtyard, Pleasance Beyond</a></p> <p><strong>Running Time:</strong> Approx 60mins</p> ]]>

<p>Two of the most distinctive voices in comedy come together in this incredible double bill headlining show, as Tim Heidecker makes his UK stand up debut alongside ‘America’s Funnyman’ Neil Hamburger.</p> <p>Comedian Tim Heidecker is often recognised for his collaborations with fellow comedian Eric Wareheim. The duo created and starred in two successful Adult Swim series <em>Tom Goes to the Mayor</em> (2004) and <em>Tim and Eric Awesome show</em>, <em>Great Job!</em> (2007). </p> <p>The two have also released several comic albums, created and starred in the film <em>Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie</em> (2012) and co-directed a series of popular Old Spice commercials starring actor Terry Crews. </p> <p>Heidecker has featured in films including <em>Bridesmaids</em> (2011) and <em>The Comedy</em> (2012) and released a number of comic albums including a collection of onetime presidential candidate Herman Cain-inspired music and Vice Magazine’s best album of 2013 Urinal St. Station. Heidecker has performed as his stand up comedian persona for sold out audiences across the <span class="caps">USA</span> and Canada.</p> <p>For 20 years Neil Hamburger has worked every imaginable stage, from New York’s Madison Square Garden and the UK’s Reading Festival, to a Hollywood cemetery, Tasmanian pubs, and an abandoned monkey cage in a decrepit Catskills zoo. With his unique brand of comedy, he has thrilled, perplexed and repulsed audiences worldwide, and now makes his long awaited return for his 4th engagement at Soho Theatre. </p> <p>Neil Hamburger was the subject of the critically-acclaimed dramatic 2015 feature film Entertainment, which premiered at the Sundance and Locarno Film Festivals and co-starred John C. Reilly, Tye Sheridan, and Michael Cera.</p> <p>This run of shows will also include a one-off matinee event on Saturday 2 September &#8211; a special screening hosted by the stars of the hit web series <a href="http://sohotheatre.com/whats-on/on-cinema-at-the-cinema/">On Cinema at the Cinema</a>, Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington.</p> <p><strong>Running Time:</strong> 70 mins<br /> <strong>Age Recommendation:</strong> 16+</p> ]]>
