Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
WINNER: Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2019 - Best Newcomer
Fresh from his award-winning run at Melbourne International Comedy Festival and sell-out runs at both Brisbane and Sydney Festival, Blake Freeman brings his debut hour to the UK.
‘An absolute natural on stage and an authentic voice from the under-represented young working class’ (Chortle), Freeman joins the ranks of previous Newcomer Award winners such as Ronny Chieng, Luke McGregor, Claudia O’Doherty, Matt Okine and Flight of the Conchords. With a heart of gold and a hilariously frank, winningly honest style, this impressive young performer is a must-see Aussie import.
‘Funny, likeable… spins a yarn with flair.’Adelaide Advertiser
'Blake Freeman might be the find of the lot. With a cathartic rant about a past relationship, a blue but complex tale of sexual adventure and a winning energy, he capped off the hour to roars and cheers.'
