Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
After a swift rise to fame after her Nobel-nominated, Man Booker-winning book Diary of a Drag Queen, DENIM’s Crystal is back.
Bringing her pages to life through song, dance and writhing around in a children’s swimming pool. A tour-de-force show of a lifetime, 108-year-old Crystal reveals how to escape shame, escape the debt collector and escape James Franco who has been obsessed with her since 1996.
‘We come away even more in love with her than before. Utter perfection.’★★★★★ Get The Chance

'not to be missed.'
'A musical tour de force, but it’s the heartfelt personal annecdotes that pack a surprising emotional weight.'
