Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
The debut play by David Baddiel
Starring Alan Davies
Directed by James Grieve
What would happen if someone was able to prove, scientifically, the existence of God?
When Edie, a student in university lecturer Henry Brook’s physics class, seems to do exactly that, his universe – including his marriage to celebrity atheist author Virginia – is rocked.
Science and religion go head-to-head in a ferociously funny battle for power, sex, fame and followers.
Starring Alan Davies (Jonathan Creek and QI), David Baddiel’s debut play is an electric tragicomedy about the power of belief and our quest for truth in a fractured world.
