Elliot Steel: Merked

August 16, 2019

Thornton Heath’s Elliot Steel strides onto Bannerman’s stage with the confidence of a wolf. Tracksuit bottoms on, red bull in hand, what he does next would be sure to infuriate the British media and what […]

Daniel Audritt: Better Man

August 16, 2019

Writer-director Daniel Audritt has had success writing for TV programmes and directing his own series Modern Horror Stories for Comedy Central, and now he’s back at the festival to demonstrate his skill as a solid stand-up comedian. For […]

Annie McGrath: Shepherd

August 16, 2019

As she begins her performance at PBH’s Free Fringe venue, Sneaky Pete’s, Annie McGrath gives nothing away to us facially. Deadpan on entry through to the end, the tension built here was nothing but masterful. […]
