Juliette Burton: Butterfly Effect

Winner: Voice Magazine Pick of the Fringe Award 2017
Winner: Spirit of the Fringe Award 2017 (Bedfringe)

Following total sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows in 2015, 2016 and 2017, Award-winning comedian Juliette Burton will be touring the UK this autumn with Butterfly Effect, her hugely popular show, in which she investigates the power of kindness and whether small, kind-hearted acts can make the world a better place.

“Intelligent, emotional, liberating.” ★★★★★ Voice Magazine

At a time when most of us find it hard enough being kind to ourselves – let alone others – is being nice outdated? Or can we still connect and change lives for the better?

Join Juliette as she continues to inspire us all with her one-woman revolution to help us to look at ourselves and those around us in a more positive, life-affirming way.

Can a small act of kindness make a big difference?

Matt Stellingwerf: Work in Progress

Join award-winning Kiwi comic Matt Stellingwerf is his attempt to find a use for the most useless of tertiary degrees and perhaps, in the process, prove that a BA is not as worthless as you might think. This educational and entertaining hour will cover: the US Constitution and iTunes, Norse mythology, the sordid lives of the Olympians (if they had Tinder), and Shakespeare’s influence on sexting.

 

 

Rob Kemp: The Elvis Dead

Rev up the Delta and come on a trip to a cabin in the Tennessee backwoods via Graceland, to witness: Cult classic horror movie Evil Dead 2 reinterpreted through the songs of Elvis Presley.

Every now and then an idea strikes that seems extremely absurd and yet at the same time bizarrely fitting. This loving tribute concert to the sequel to the ultimate in gruelling terror… and the King of Rock‘n’Roll is such an idea. Brilliantly executed.

“Kemp has an incredible voice. Many think they can do an Elvis impersonation but Kemp really can, belting out the tunes that oh so familiar baritone” ★★★★ Fest
