Danielle Ward – SEVENTEEN
Being a teenager in the 90s was hard enough (Is your favourite band Blur or Oasis or Throbbing Gristle?) but now there’s a whole new set of things to worry about. How much pubic hair should you have? Can feminists enjoy hip hop? Why is fruit suddenly bad for you? Let the host of hit podcast Do The Right Thing guide you through this difficult time with stand-up, songs and one sexually explicit mime. You might recognise Danielle’s face from Mock The Week, NBC’s Last Comic Standing and Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe, or her voice from The News Quiz, Dilemma and Dave Gorman’s Show on Absolute Radio.
Ward really shines… an adept musician as well as a talented comic (Three Weeks) ****
“Graphic and funny… Ward’s language pulls no punches, her humour skips between light and dark with skill, and she’s an accomplished performer of music and comedy.” (Fest) ****
Chris Stokes – Edinburgh Preview
Chris Stokes? Yes. Comedian? Absolutely. Award-winning? You betcha. Man…? Can you be more specific? Ostensibly a human, Chris returns with a new work-in-progress show about you. Well, the species that you have in common with him.
