Marcel Lucont: Gallic Symbol

Witty, acerbic, magniloquent Frenchman seeks willing, intelligent audience for fun, adventure, maybe something more. Must have own underwear, socks and breath but be prepared to have these charmed off, laughed off and taken away respectively.

Winner of the Amused Moose Laughter Award 2012 and Perth Fringeworld Best Comedy Show as seen on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3), Live at The Electric (BBC3) and Set List (Sky Atlantic).

‘Fresh, accessible and hilarious’ The Guardian
‘Tres Bon Marcel. Encore!’ The Scotsman
‘A pitch-perfect performance… Hilarious’ Time Out

6.30pm: James Acaster: Lawnmower

James Ancaster

A sell out at this venue on his previous tour.

It’s time for some low key stand up from an angular young man. James Acaster embarks on his 3rd UK tour and, believe you me, a whole host of topics are about to get what they’ve got coming to them. Quite frankly, it’s about high time someone gave it to them the way they’re about to get it. Here we go.

As seen on “Russel Howard’s Good News” (BBC3), Chris Addison’s “Show and Tell” (E4), “Dave’s One Night Stand” (Dave), “Live at the Comedy Store” (Paramount) and “Edinburgh Comedy Gala” (BBC3). As heard on “James Acaster’s Findings” (Radio 4) and weekly on “The Josh Widdicombe Show” (XFM)

“One of the sharpest comic minds to have emerged in recent years” – Guardian
“Deliciously daft and no slouch in the surprises department” – Evening Standard
“One of the best hours of straight stand-up at this year’s festival” – Time Out
