Freddy Quinne presents Entfremdung
Entfremdung is the hotly anticipated debut show from award-winning comedian Freddy Quinne. This blistering solo show has already had sell-out performances at both the Nottingham Comedy Festival and Leicester Comedy Festival, and is attracting rave reviews for a no holds barred tour-de-force performance that'll leave you in stitches!
In 2014 Freddy was MC for the late show for the Big Value Show at the Edinburgh Fringe, one of the most prestigious showcases at the festival, and he returned to the Fringe in 2015, where he hosted the AAA Comedy Showcase at the Pleasance Courtyard. He also MC'd a showcase for online magazine and comedy reviewers The Skinny, as part of the Liverpool Comedy Festival, and he currently acts as a resident MC for over half a dozen comedy nights across the country as well as regularly compering some of the biggest comedy venues in the UK.
Freddy's willingness to break away from his set and involve the crowd leads for an engaging and memorable set backed up with frantic energy and raw emotion.
“Big, brash and very funny” - Giggle Beats
“uncompromising... a natural comic with near perfect timing” - Manchester Wire
“uniquely Northern observational humour” - Lancashire Evening Post
Seymour Mace’s Magical Shitcakes From Heaven: Work In Progress
2015 Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee
This bit’s called the ‘blurb’ whatever the fuck that means. Anyway, I’m an idiot and I like being stupid so if that sounds like your kind of thing then get down to Hartlepool and laugh at me without feeling bad about it... or don’t... it’s up to you really... I mean, I know I’m not everybody’s cup of tea... anyway, fuck it!
Come, don’t come, whatever. God I’m good at self promotion... please come.
