Funny Way To Be Comedy - Chris Washington and Heidi Regan: Fresh From The Fringe

We spent a month in Edinburgh last Summer looking for new talent and these were two of the best new performers we saw.

Date: Saturday 20 January
Time: 8 pm show, 7.30pm doors open, 7.00pm bar/café
Price: £12.00 (16+)


Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer nominee and professional realist Chris Washington’s debut show Dream Big (Within Reason) went down a storm with critics and punters alike. His simplistic take on joke telling and indeed on life paired with his northern charm is bound to win crowds over time and time again.

“A timeless storytelling joke-smith.”...Beyond the Joke
"Funny, relatable and heart-warming."...Broadway Baby

It’s been a fast rise for multi-award winning stand-up Heidi Regan.
Winner of the 2016 So You Think You’re Funny competition, she is also the latest holder of the BBC New Comedy Award.  As a writer Heidi has won a plethora of awards including the Australian Writers’ Guild Award for the Best Unproduced Feature Film Script and has material in various formats including film, sketch, sitcom and literature.
In this hour she explores our relationship with an increasingly confusing world via the medium of shark films. She looks at religion, global warming and what makes Shark Attack III the Godfather III of shark films.  This is a rare chance to see Heidi presenting a work in progress version of her debut hour, Heidi Vs Sharks, the Internet and Everything.

“Regan has a stand-up style of her own…. a playful, slow-burn, distinctive routine”...Bruce Dessau, Beyondthejoke.
