Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Tony Hinchcliffe is one of the top young rising comedians in the world. His dark, free-flowing and truly unapologetic stand-up comedy style is already well known in the USA, Canada and Australia. Now he makes his UK debut at Soho Theatre with a show that is not for the easily offended.
Tony gained popularity with his innovative 2016 Netflix comedy special, One Shot, which follows him in one continuous take. He is considered a fresh new evolution to the now immensely popular roasting scene, and has worked as a staff writer on the past six Comedy Central Roasts, shaping the iconic sets of many dais members from Edward Norton to Martha Stewart.
Tony appeared on multiple seasons of Comedy Central’s Roast Battle series and has appeared on HBO’s Crashing, Comedy Central’s Unsend, and Fusion’s All Def Roast: Snoop Dogg Smoke Out. Tony’s own weekly podcast Kill Tony has over a million downloads a month, he is a regular guest on The Joe Rogan Experience and co-hosts his hilarious pro-wrestling panel podcast The Store Horseman.
His work as a writer has had him working on projects such as NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly and Will Ferrell’s one-hour HBO special Ferrell Takes the Field and he has also appeared on NBC’s Last Call w/ Carson Daly, Comedy Central’s @Midnight, and on Seeso’s What’s Your F@%king Deal.
Tony is one of the most widely respected punch up writers for both TV and stand up and is highly trusted by some of the best comedians in the world.
