Edinburgh Previews: Jarred Christmas & Fin Taylor at The Four Thieves

Edinburgh Previews – Two full work in progress shows, from phenomenal comics

JARRED CHRISTMAS: Remarkably Average (Preview) 

Hey team! So, I had a DNA test and the results were very disappointing. There is nothing remarkable about my genetics at all. I'm dealing with my own averageness but I'm not going to let my humdrum results stop me putting on a show. Thank you for your support in this painfully average time of my life.  

'Utterly hilarious. One of the funniest men to pick up a microphone' (Time Out). 'Likeable, intelligent and full of unpredictable energy' (Scotsman). 'Robustly funny' (List). 

Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Mock the Week, Russell Howard's Good News, 8 out of 10 Cats, Dave's One Night Stand, Let's Dance for Comic Relief & Celebrity Mastermind and more! 

FIN TAYLOR When HarasseyMet Sally (Preview) 

'The most relevant comedian in Edinburgh' (EdFestMag.com) is back! His finger's still on the pulse, except now he doesn't know whether that's flirting or harassment. This is the third year in a row Fin has picked a stupid title after five-star sell-outs Whitey McWhitefaceand Lefty TightyRighty Loosey. With race and politics done, he's getting stuck into the war of the sexes.  

Comedy Central, Comedian Roast Battles and more. 

'Exceptionally thought-provoking and properly hilarious' (Skinny). 'Phenomenal... on top of both his game and the zeitgeist' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Achingly funny' (List). ***** (Scotsman). **** (Independent).
