Danny Bhoy, Dear Epson Edinburgh EICC, Edinburgh Fringe Festival
Following performances on The Late Show with David Letterman and Live at the Apollo, hit tours of Australia, New Zealand and North America; one of Scotland's biggest comedy exports, Danny Bhoy, brings his internationally renowned Gaelic charm back to Scotland for 5 nights at the Edinburgh EICC 3rd-8th August and tour dates across Scotland from the 12th September.
In a slight departure from his traditional stand up, this show revolves around a handful of 'feedback' letters Danny penned out of frustration. It's a show about all those little annoyances - too frivolous to be a cause, too inconsequential to be a campaign, but just about right for a stand-up with too much time on his hands..
Danny commented: "A few years back, I launched a campaign (wrote some letters) which successfully saw the return of Roast Beef Monster Munch to our supermarket shelves. You're welcome. This is a loosely-based stand up which revolves around some similarly heroic work."
Gaining praise across the world, Danny's appearances at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival won him rave reviews and a nomination for the Gemini Award for Best Individual Comedy Performance, whilst in the US he had the honour of recording an highly coveted 1-hour Comedy Central Special. This side of the pond Danny has worked his way up from a modest 60-seater at the Edinburgh Fringe back in 2001 to recently performing at the prestigious Festival Theatre in Edinburgh to a sell-out crowd. That show was also recorded for a much-anticipated UK DVD, due for release 26th November.
Venue 150 at EICC, 3rd-8th August, begins at 7.25 pm. Tickets are £16.50. Contact the box office at 0844 847 1639 or the Edinburgh Fringe Box Office at 0131 226 0000.
