Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Straight from headlining the Southbank River Stage (in June) ACM, lesser known as A Cinematic Masterpiece, are here to bust you into 2020 with a literal bang (as long as you’re consenting).
Known to all as unknown, known to few as ‘the best band I saw that time at the RCA in 2015’, ACM’s musical numbers are all about failing in the most glorious way possible. If Spinal Tap spoke to a generation ready to laugh at the ego of glam-rock superstars, then ACM are the hapless heroes for a less bombastic, more awake generation.
From Go Slow, a ballad about your vibrator running out of batteries, to Nannas On A Rampage (number 1 in less than 1 countries) — ACM are here to lift you out of your comfort zone (and your comedown) and drive you crotch first into the space, under the sea, off a cliff, via seven engorged alien vaginas. It’s gonna be gorj.
'ACM lit up the stage like an arc light made of rainbows and razor blades. The size of venue could barely contain the energy they gave off. Think Rocky Horror Show + The Tubes but way more brazen.'
