Dave Johns & Andrew Ryan
Dave Johns: I, Fillum Star: Work In Progress
What happens to a comedian when he's plucked from obscurity by master film maker Ken Loach and cast in the title role of one of the most acclaimed and talked about British films of recent years?
I, Daniel Blake became a beacon for social realism and, for Dave Johns, a rollercoaster ride of red carpet surrealism. From The Cannes Film Festival to the BAFTAs, he was there, wide-eyed. Now, he's back doing the thing he loves best – making people laugh.
“He shifts from the sublime, to genius, to uproar in the blink of an eye - An extremely entertaining hour” - The Guardian
“Dave Johns has a uncontrived manner and sense of fun on stage that most comics can only dream about” - The Scotsman
“Look closely you will see the man generate sparks of magic” - The List
Andrew Ryan - Did You Get Here Alright?: Work In Progress
Irishman Andrew Ryan prepares to return to the Fringe with another offering of his “well-paced, well written show that delivers plenty of laughs” (The Mirror). Ryan is trying to conquer love, life, politics, insecurity, fear, living alone, all while he is an immigrant in a country where he was recently told to ‘go home’. Ryan has found the answer, it is not what he expected.
Ryan has appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC1's The Blame Game, and Comedy Central's Live at the Comedy Store.
