We were very excited to produce our first ever comedy show for the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. After sell-out shows in 2016 and 2017 Gareth Mutch returns with a bucket list to help fix his tragic life. What do you do when you wake up aged 24 and realise you have seen, done, experienced, and achieved nothing? Well, comedian Gareth Mutch made a list: a roadmap to sorting out his life and figuring out what it is he actually wants. Join Gareth as he looks to travel, get fit, find love, and rebuild a life hijacked by stand-up comedy. This is Gareth's first full solo run at the Fringe and he'll be performing at the amazing Gilded Balloon.
For 2017 Fringe Loud Poets brought a brand-new show to the Edinburgh Fringe for their fourth consecutive year, and it was a big one. In today's climate of runaway commercialism and a constant barrage of advertising, Loud Poets asked: what's the role of poetry? And what exactly are poets selling you? Drawing on their diverse backgrounds in theatre, dance, music and more, the poets performed a variety of original solo and multi-voice pieces showcasing the best spoken word has to offer. The poets were accompanied by live music from Scottish band Ekobirds, plus short films which were produced in-house.
