Where to see the Edinburgh Comedy Award winners and runners-up

Thursday, October 11 2012


Dr Brown












First of all, the main award nominees ...

Dr Brown: Befrdfgth
March-April, Soho Theatre.
If you only see one show all year, and all that ... His autumn run at the Soho Theatre is sold out, but he will be BACK in the spring, with shows between March 25 and April 20, tickets are on sale now.

Claudia O'Doherty: The Telescope
Now until October 14, Invisible Dot/Soho Theatre
Get on the ball, O'Doherty's on this week! And she may be returning to Soho Theatre soon ...

Josie Long: Romance and Adventure
November 5-9, Soho Theatre.
A short-ish run for Long of her latest show, which got her her THIRD successive Edinburgh award nomination!

Tony Law: Maximum Nonsense
Feb-March 2013 at Soho Theatre.
Law's autumn dates at the Soho Theatre sold out in a heartbeat, so more have been added for Feb/March next year, and tickets are already flying out.

Pappy's: Last Show Ever
April 2013, Soho Theatre
A knockabout classic that got 5 stars from LiF in August.

James Acaster: Prompt
Jan-Feb, Soho Theatre
Whimsy behemoth Acaster's second show is as good as his first. And that's a big compliment.



Daniel Simonsen
















The Panel Prize winner ...

The Boy With Tape On His Face: More Tape
Dec-Jan, Duchess Theatre
A big showbiz Theatreland run was recently announced for Tape Face. Lots of dates and lots of tickets, but this will sell out, and it's a must-see, so booking ahead is highly recommended. Capiche?


And finally those newcomer nominees ...

Sam Fletcher: Good On Paper
Feb, Soho Theatre
Diminutive charmer Fletcher was the surprise package of the Best Newcomer award nominees ...

Daniel Simonsen: Champions
Jan-Feb, Soho Theatre
Unorthodox Norwegian stand-up Simonsen was the winner ...

David Trent: Spontaneous Comedian
Jan-Feb, Soho Theatre
Trent is the oldest, loudest and in LiF's opinion the funniest ...

Joe Lycett: Some Lycett Hot
Feb, Soho Theatre
And Lycett is the one probably destined for biggest things.

Meanwhile, Ben Target is yet to announce details of his spring run, so stay tuned.
