Christian Talbot & Paul Savage
Christian Talbot – Desperately Seeking Approval
I’m just a comedian, standing in front of literally anything, asking it to love me. How being needy and anxious made me famous for a day. As seen on the BBC’s Soft Border Patrol. ‘An absolutely engaging performer. The woman next to me nearly dislocated something, so much was she laughing. Can’t say fairer than that’ (Scotsman). ‘Talbot may call himself “shite at being Irish” but when it comes to putting together a good show, well, he’s great at that’ (BroadwayBaby.com).
Paul Savage: Do Gooder
It’s hard to do good when everything’s falling apart. Paul Savage had a weird year, that really made him look inside himself. That’s never a good thing. Contains great new jokes about depression, identity politics and jewel heists. ‘Brave enough to be offensive, with a number of insane anecdotes. Shades of brilliance lurk here’ (ThreeWeeks). Top 10 Jokes of the Fringe 2017 (Guardian, Mirror, Esquire, Shortlist, Week). ‘An engaging and affable labour of love from a man determined to find comedy in the unlikeliest of places’ (BroadwayBaby.com). ‘Genuinely brilliant. An all round hoot’ (Guardian).
