Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Cocoon Central Dance Team - the perfect hybrid of Flight of the Conchords, Beastie Boys and Twyla Tharp
You’ve heard of friendship, yes? Gardens, right? And parties? Well. Imagine the drama of all three at the same time, with dance. Now try imagining a party without Sunita, Tallie and Eleanore. No thanks
Honouring the human body’s stupidity and a songbook of early 00’s pop hits, these three have to be seen to be believed. Sunita, Tallie and Eleanore sashay through the Cocoon universe with high-energy choreography, videos and uncanny chemistry
Highbrow collides with lowbrow to form the perfect unibrow. The Garden Party is an original night of comedy making its debut in London.
This trio of New York City alt-comedy favorites have been best friends and creative collaborators for over ten years. Nothing could ever tear them apart. Just kidding. Ever been in a relationship?
Come to the garden party… there’s gonna be a fight.
