Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Uncle Glen's Menagerie is the show that throws two performers together for the first time. One has the script. The other knows nothing...
The show features a rotating cast of some of the UK’s top performers from theatre (The Ferryman, Donmar Shakespeare Trilogy, All About Eve), TV (Peep Show, Flowers, W1A, Black Mirror, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Broad City, The Crown) and live comedy (Austentatious, The Free Association, Massive Dad).
Following sold-out performances in London and Edinburgh, Uncle Glen’s now comes to Soho Theatre. As brand-new versions of scenes will unfold, on the spot, never to be seen again – don’t miss an hilarious, chaotic and moving experience.
Hosted by ‘the reigning queen of character comedy’ (Evening Standard) Alison Thea-Skot, with the full cast to be announced.

Neil Casey (Ghostbusters, Saturday Night Live, Silicon Valley, Emmy nominee)
