A double bill of comedy previewing their new Edinburgh Shows at the Tabard Theatre. BRENDON BURNS - Comedy Good Yeah Silly Side C*nt 'Mr Burns is a f**king genius' - Time Out New York Brendon Burns, ‘The self-proclaimed 'thinking man's idiot', will be performing for two nights only at the 2009 Edinburgh Fringe Festival so this is a rare chance to see the Perrier Award winning comic. No subject is a no-go zone for Burns., though far from ambulance chasing, this comic handles such sensitive topics with intelligence and a rare sense of accountability. Burns' confrontational delivery belies the thoughtfulness of his material. His assertions may shock but his honesty means Burns never alienates, rather he serves to challenge his own thought-process, and ours. Burns is on career-defining form and has spent most of the year performing in Australia and Hollywood. Described by many as the most refreshingly honest comedian of his generation, join Brendon for an hour of hilarity from Britain's most controversial comedian. ADAM HILLS - INFLATABLE 'Hills delivers stand up so effortlessly brilliant you wonder why some comedians even get out of bed' The Guardian, London Three times nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award, Adams solo shows are established highlights at the Adelaide Fringe, the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and the Edinburgh Fringe, where he regularly sells over 10,000 tickets in the month. He has been awarded Australias Helpman Award for Best Comedy Performance, and has received the Best of the Fest, and Forth Fringe Award from Edinburgh Fringe critics. Adam Hills is back at the Edinburgh Fringe doing what he does best. "Inflatable"is an all-new hour-and-a-bit of world-class stand up comedy and rampant spontaneity from one of the world's most renowned comics. Expect an uplifting combination of one-liners, stories and audience interaction.
