Edinburgh Festival Fringe: Making News: Suki Webster, Hal Cruttenden, Sara Pascoe, Liam Williams, Phill Jupitus, Dan Starkey
It's the start of a 24-hour news cycle and Rachel Clarke has been promoted as the BBC's newest Head of News.
When a crisis erupts, she has to confront rivals within and without, and decide how to report on a story that could bring down the Corporation itself.
Fast-moving satire about the BBC.
Stand-up comedienne described by Eddie Izzard as 'Funny, sexy, dirty - usually all at the same time'. Suki Webster is a regular guest of The Comedy Store Players and has toured the world with Paul Merton And His Impro Chums and more recently co-wrote Paul Merton Looks at Alfred Hitchcock (BBC4/2) and a Morecambe and Wise tribute show (BBC1). She also co-wrote and was Assistant Director on Paul Merton’s Birth of Hollywood (BBC2).
Suki Webster tour dates
Following stand out performances on Live At The Apollo (BBC1), Let's Dance For Comic Relief (BBC1), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1) and Mock The Week (BBC2), Hal is being strongly tipped as the next big thing.
Hal's comedy is simultaneously warm and catty, straight and camp - it's a lovely mix that has made him a regular guest on John Bishops's Only Joking (Sky1) and led to not one, but two sitcoms being produced this year.
'An absolute joy to watch... fabulous' (The Scotsman)
'Best solo stand-up show to date' (The Daily Telegraph)
'He had the audience eating out of his hands' (Chortle)
'On the edge of great fame' (Fest).
Hal Cruttenden tour dates
Sara Pascoe is a British writer, stand-up comedian and actress. She has appeared in a number of television programmes, as well as an all-female sketch show and her own Edinburgh show, and runs comedy club The House Of Mirth.
Sara's stand-up is influenced by her joint favourite heroes, Jodie Marsh and Winston Churchill.
'Always intelligent and occasionally exquisite' (The Independent)
'Pascoe uses erudite references as just one strand of an offbeat worldview, offset by moments of gloriously deliberate dumbness and delivered with nothing less than full-megawatt charisma' (The Guardian)
'... defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible' (Evening Standard).
Sara Pascoe tour dates
Amused Moose finalist 2010, stand-up, actor, writer and one third of comedy group Sheeps, Liam is one of the most talented new comics working today.
'... the most exciting act from this year's Edinburgh Fringe' (The Guardian)
'Great voice, smart gags... Winning delivery' (Chortle)
'We're expecting this to be a cracker... one to watch' (Time Out)
'Brilliant... had the audience doubled up' (Three Weeks).
Liam Williams tour dates
This popular stand-up and TV comedian is well-known for his appearances on the pop music quiz show Never Mind The Buzzcocks. His career as a performer began in 1984 when he quit his job as a civil servant to follow a new direction as a performance poet on the alternative comedy circuit and supporting bands such as The Style Council and The Housemartins. During the late '80s he worked with Billy Bragg, directing videos for both Bragg and Kirsty MacColl. Phill has an abiding love and in-depth knowledge of popular music, particularly ska, bluebeat and rhythm & blues. His hugely successful standup tours have included Jedi, Steady, Go and Quadrophobia, and he has worked extensively on radio, variously as a contributor, panellist and presenter. He has also toured as part of The Blockheads line-up.
