Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
A star on the rise, Ohio-born, LA-based stand-up, writer and actor Beth Stelling makes her UK debut at Soho Theatre.
Named by Time Out as a ‘Comic to Watch’ in 2016, Beth writes for Judd Apatow’s HBO series Crashing and has recorded her own Netflix special.
Beth’s many TV appearances include Showtime’s SXSW Special, Conan, Chelsea Lately, Last Call with Carson Daly and The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail. She most recently performed stand-up on Jimmy Kimmel Live, after Jimmy saw her at perform at Upright Citizens Brigade and approached her personally.
'In addition to being an incredibly funny writer of cleverly crafted jokes, Beth Stelling has this playfully intoxicating delivery that immediately grabs you.’
'Dry and acerbic, Beth Stelling’s jokes tend to catch you off guard. With a calm voice and casual delivery, she commands rooms across the country, as well as internationally.’
'Stelling’s secret weapon is subtlety, the kind that demands your full attention in order to understand what’s special about her. If you give her that, the laughs will sneak up and overpower you.’
