T1884223420 (TABARD09)A double bill of comedy previewing their new Edinburgh Shows at the Tabard Theatre. MARCUS BRIGSTOCKE - God Collar 'Dazzling, Inspired, perfectly observed. I've yet to see anything funnier' - Daily Telegraph The king of satirical comedy, Marcus Brigstocke, is taking his hotly anticipated new show God Collar to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year. The award-winning comedian is a firm favourite with festival goers and God Collar promises to be as sharply observant and quick-witted as his much loved catalogue of work. Marcus is regarded as a major comedy, writing and acting talent, performing stand up nationally to sell out audiences both on tour and on the well trodden comedy circuit. BBC Radio 4 has become somewhat of a second home to him with regular appearances on The Now Show and Just A Minute, and he has notched up an impressive list of TV credits including team captain on Argumental (DAVE) and the host BBC4's The Late Edition and I've Never Seen Star Wars. JON RICHARDSON - This Guy at Night 'A junior version of Victor Meldrew - only wittier and more northern' stars - The Scotsman Off the back of a hugely successful appearance on Michael McIntyres Comedy Roadshow, and fresh from his first UK solo tour in 2009, Jon Richardson will be performing at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his brand new show. Jon is one of the most in-demand young artists on the UK comedy circuit today and currently hosts the Sunday mid-morning show on BBC6 Music where his unique presenting style has won him thousands of loyal weekly listeners. In the November 2008 issue of Q Magazine, Jon was voted by its readers as one of the top five comedians of the year to look out for in 2009. Join Jon as he gets life's idiosyncrasies off his chest in his grumpy, yet uniquely charming, Northern style.
