Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
LIVE BAND. CULT COMEDY. EPIC ADVENTURE.
The Lost Disc is a riotous quest for the holy grail of recorded music. Part gig, part play, part comedy show… and an alternative history of popular music.
Join discredited NME journalist Stu Morecambe as he searches for a legendary lost recording of three of the 20th century’s finest forgotten musicians.
But does it even exist?
Chock full of original songs, conspiracy theories and pop legend, The Lost Disc is what happens when Raiders of The Lost Ark meets 6Music.
Written and performed by Perrier Award Winner Will Adamsdale (Jackson’s Way) and Ed Gaughan (Peter Sellers Comedy Award nominee for Skeletons).
Starring Victoria Elliott (Vic & Bob’s Big Night Out) and John Lightbody (Ghost Stories) and with original music by Chris Branch, Will Adamsdale and Ed Gaughan performed by members of cult favourites The London Snorkelling Team including Pascal Wyse, Keith De Barra, Marcus Penrose and Dave Whitford.
Directed and co-written by triple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Tom Parry (Pappy’s).
Commissioned by Shoreditch Town Hall and Beaford Arts
Based on an original idea by Will Adamsdale and Luke Ponte
'A musical detective story, part comedy thriller, part concert experience, performed by a multi-tasking cast of impossible talent.'
'The Lost Disc is one of the best and funniest shows I’ve seen in YEARS!!! Totally silly and totally clever- the best kind of comedy.'
'If you like hybrids of music, theatre and comedy this might be just the thing for you.'
