Mark Cooper-Jones & Kieran Boyd
First Chance Fringe
Tue 12 Jul 2016
A sneak peek of some of Edinburghs best comedy picks before they hit the mainstream.
On paper, this show sounds excellent. Mark is a professional comedian who’s appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC Radio 4, BBC Three’s Live at the Electric (with sketch group WitTank), and performed stand up across the country. Furthermore, he’s an ex-geography teacher and Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, so you’d expect the show to have the perfect blend of hilarious anecdotes and insightful knowledge. The whole thing should, in theory, amount to an outstanding hour of entertainment but the only way to know for sure is to watch it.
Kieran presents his debut stand up show about how we all say and do really quite weird things and its probably a good idea to keep an eye on them. He likes heavy metal and grammar, so this will be wild, but also correct. Hes the one who played all the girl parts in Fringe sketch veterans WitTank. Impressively funny Terrific material (Scotsman). Genuinely funny very talented comedian **** (Threeweeks). Praise for WitTank: Masterful (Sunday Times). Excellent, inspired and resolutely daft (Independent). Star of Live at the Electric (BBC Three) and Sketchorama (BBC Radio 4).
