Enjoy Tom Allen’s sensational stand up and Phil Jerrod’s unique stream-of-consciousness observations before they hit the Edinburgh Fringe.

Tom Allen: Absolutely

As seen on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Live at the Apollo, The Great British Bake Off’s Extra Slice, The John Bishop Show, Virtually Famous, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala at the O2 and heard on Radio 4’s Just a Minute. In the last year Tom has supported Sarah Millican around the world, sold out his Edinburgh and London runs and even passed his driving test!

★★★★ ‘Riotous stuff, perfectly delivered’ (Scotsman)

★★★★ ‘Vicious, feisty, and absolutely hilarious’ (Grump Gay Critic)

★★★★ ‘He’s clearly heading for headliner status’ (Ed Fest)


Phil Jerrod: Submerged

Fresh from supporting Romesh Ranganathan on his nationwide tour, the ‘cynical, astute and impassioned’ (Chortle) comedian returns with his third debut show at the Fringe.

Everyone’s obsessed with living longer, looking better, being healthier, but Phil’s still overweight, still hairy and still just about keeping his head above water in a world that’s gone mad. With ‘Insightful, despairing wit’ (The Scotsman) and “Razor sharp timing’ (Ed Fest) come and see a fat sweaty man prance around for an hour in a show that’s literally been described as ‘A very funny hour of stand-up comedy’ (Broadway Baby).   

‘Casual brilliance… instinctive mastery of his form immediately marks him out as one to watch’ (The Guardian)

‘Perfectly delivered, perfectly timed and perfectly glorious’ (Broadway Baby)
