Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Four-time Melbourne International Comedy Festival Best Show nominee Anne Edmonds makes a welcome return to Soho Theatre this Summer and she wants to know… what’s wrong with you?
Not just you, but the whole lot of you.
Humanity has clearly flushed its own head down the drain and she can’t decide whether to pull you all up or leave you down there.
Clear-eyed and in no mood to suffer fools, Eddo is as angry as she is over it.
Hilarious, surprising and completely on point, Anne Edmonds is the rockstar of Australian comedy and everybody knows it. Her reputation as the comedian that everyone (including other comedians) want to see is thanks to her incisive character performance skills and razor-sharp writing. Her punchlines don’t just sting, they poison. It’s that mojo which has seen Eddo’s status soar to the golden girl of Australian stand-up.
As seen on Stand Up on BBC Wales and a regular on Australian panel shows, Have You Been Paying Attention?, The Project and Hughesy We Have A Problem. Anne’s formidable sarong-wearing, kiwi mojito-sipping, fashion expert Helen Bidou has become a viral sensation after appearing on Australian television and she has written and starred in very her own show, The Edge of the Bush, described as “ABC’s most original comedy in years” (Daily Beast).
Eddo is at the peak of her powers – there is nothing wrong with her. How about you?
‘Rolling with the confidence and energy of a prize fighter.’
‘What’s Wrong With You? is delivered in a loose and charming way.’
