Laugh Out London Festival

Laugh Out London Festival

Saturday 21st July

Laugh Out London presents the fourth day of the Laugh Out London Comedy Festival 2018 at the Old Queens Head with four work in progress shows from four superb comics as they prepare for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe…

Hal Cruttenden: Chubster (Work in Progress)
Hal’s literally filled our screens in the last few years on such shows as Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News For You, The Apprentice: You’re Fired and The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice. He’s also recorded two series of his sitcom Hal for BBC Radio 4. Now he’s back at Edinburgh with a brand-new show, the title of which, Chubster, was chosen by his charming daughters. Hal is now on a diet. ‘He had the audience in stitches’ ★★★★★ (Daily Record). ‘An absolute joy to watch’ ★★★★ (Scotsman).

Lolly Adefope: Lolly 3 (Work in Progress)
The hotly-anticipated new show from the multi-award-winning character comedian and star of Taskmaster (Dave), Loaded (Channel 4), Miracle Workers (TBS USA) and Damned (Channel 4). The Observer’s Rising Star 2017, Lolly is ‘nothing short of outstanding’ ★★★★★ ( ‘I never wanted this show to end’ ★★★★★ (ThreeWeeks). ‘One of the best character comedians around’ **** ( ‘She has found her comic voice and something to say. Bound for much bigger things’ **** ( ★★★★★ (Mirror). ★★★★ (Evening Standard). ★★★★ (Time Out). ★★★★ (

Rose Matafeo: Horndog (Work in Progress)
Rose Matafeo has kissed nearly 10 men in her life, AKA she’s a total horndog. But what is horniness? Is it that intangible essence of excitement and opportunity? A fire that flickers in the beating heart of every human being? Or is it simply wanting to bone everyone, all the time? Join Rose for a brand-new hour of critically acclaimed stand-up, sketch and mid-20s angst. As seen on W1A and Have I Got News For You. ‘Effervescently entertaining’ ★★★★ (Guardian). ‘One of the undoubted highlights of the Fringe’ ★★★★★ (Telegraph). Best Show nominee, Melbourne Comedy Festival 2018.

Andy Barr: Neustadt (Work in Progress)
Visionary architect Andy Barr, tasked with designing the ideal socialist city, is dragged into a paranoid nightmare of Cold War intrigue. Andy Barr is a stand-up and member of the Weirdos collective. ‘Skilfully written and delivered lines… Barr’s comic timing and gestures are impeccable’ ★★★★ (List). ‘Delightful’ ( ‘He is a funny boy’ (Tim Key, Pick of the Fringe 2017). ‘One of the best up and coming idiots out there’ (John Kearns).

Time: Doors 12:00 noon, First show 12:30pm, End 6:00pm
