Neath Comedy Festival: Brendon Burns, Paul James, Ignacio Lopez


Aussie comic Brendon Burns is an Edinburgh Fringe Award Winner, cult legend on the world comedy circuit, he has done some TV and has released several chart topping DVDs, pretty much every comic on the world scene has a funny Brendon Burns story, so why isn't he better known? In this show he addresses exactly why he has managed to remain a painfully anonymous figure in the UK (the country where he is actually based!) as well as his recent discovery that he is partially deaf.

Brendon has performed for over two decades at every major festival around the world and has performed on every continent in the world except the Antarctic (gig pending).

This is not your everyday comic. His energy is enticing; his turn of phrase is course yet oddly eloquent, whilst he himself somehow remains fully accessible and intensely loveable. Never pompous and ever self-deprecating he just somehow seems to get away with murder. Not so much a “truth-sayer” but a traditionally harmless and inclusive warm-hearted court jester. His influence is ubiquitous throughout the stand up world. Often replicated but never matched, his shows aren’t just extended sets, Burns specialises in creating experiences: forever experimenting with the form and throwing himself new challenges.

We are very pleased to have this show as part of the Neath Comedy Festival 2014.

‘Not only has he been pushing back the boundaries of taste for years, I’m quite certain he has no idea where they are.’ Jimmy Carr.

‘His peers are not other stand ups but more from the literary World. Burns is the William Burrows and Charles Bukowski of stand up.’ Guardian.

With Support from Paul James and Ignacio Lopez.
