Climb aboard the ship for a comedy work-in-progress double-bill from two critically acclaimed comedians.

Nick Helm: Phoenix From The Flames

After six years away from Edinburgh and ahead of his National Tour, Helm is back at the Fringe with a full run of his new show to remind the world what they’ve been missing out on. Resurrected from the ashes, come and witness two-time Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee and International Treasure In Waiting singing songs and righting wrongs. You don’t deserve this...

'The man is brutal, but by AC/DC he's talented with it.' - The Latest ★★★★★

‘A true comedy daredevil’ - Time Out ★★★★

Jake Lambert: Never Mak The Same Mistak Twice (Work In Progress)

Following on from his sold-out debut, Jake Lambert returns with a brand new show. As seen on Comedy Central, Writer for Mock The Week and The News Quiz.

So, the show title; basically he’s moved in with his girlfriend and he's trying not to mess it up, whilst learning from his mistakes. (He was going to do a show about his successes, but neither of them were very funny).

'Solidly entertaining debut' - The Scotsman

'brilliant one-liners' - Chortle
