Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and very-hard-to-pin-down-indie-underdog-nightmare Josie Long is back with a brand-new show after a brief hiatus, during which she had a baby and so on.
It’s about the mind-bending intensity of new motherhood, but mostly about kindness, gentleness, and joy – all in all, the edgiest thing you will see this year.
‘Full of love and defiant joy.’★★★★ Guardian
The aim is for you to come out of it feeling optimistic about the future, although that is a big ask. At the very least there will be some really silly voices in it, and that’s not nothing.

‘Her excitability is as infectious as always...explicitly personal and positive...an hour of near constant laughs.’
‘A show about faith and love and a pleasure to watch. Life-affirming in every sense.’
‘Long is as playful and match fit as ever... She is articulate, passionate and intense, but heart-warmingly funny, too.’
‘Energetic act-outs, sweary surprises and dramatic, comedic excitement. There are also moments of real beauty.’
