Can’t make it to Edinburgh Fringe this year?
No problem as stand-up comedians Sara Pascoe and Tom Houghton will be bringing their Edinburgh Preview Shows down to Portsmouth Guildhall this June.
Sara is enjoying a year-long, one woman stag-do. From spiritual retreats, city-breaks, life-drawing classes and football matches – she has been drunk and lonely everywhere. The multi-award-winning comedian and star of Live at The Apollo, Mock the Week, QI, and Taskmaster returns to Edinburgh with a stunning new stand-up show.
“Pascoe’s lively mind teases out big questions with intelligence, silliness and self-depreciation” The Guardian
Former Noise Next Door founding member (“Purple Tie Tom” from the critically acclaimed group and Edinburgh sell out veterans) Tom Houghton makes his highly anticipated Edinburgh debut at this year’s Festival with stand up show ‘Class Half Empty’. Already nominated at this years Leicester Comedy Festival for The Mercury Comedian of the year, taking the comedy circuit by storm, appearing on Channel 4s "First Dates Hotel" and even swinging the first punch at Chortles Comedy event of the year “Comedians Boxing” he brings a preview of his debut hour to Portsmouth for one night only. Funny and charming with roguish tales and swooningly dark manner, get ready to witness the silver spoon rebellion of this rising star whose “not afraid to poke around the edges of what’s comfortable” (Chortle) before he goes stratospheric.
