Price:
£10 ADV

This month we have another superb Edinburgh Fringe Special preview show for you, this time from one of the most exciting and funniest acts currently on the circuit with his brand new show.... 

 

Troy Hawke

'Tiles of the Unexpected!'

 

Troy Hawke is an erudite home schooled 1930's throwback...the Errol Flynn of the high street. 

Educated, sophisticated, but utterly clueless. He tackles modern issues head on in his uniquely untimely manner.

 

Following a sellout run in 2018 in which he exposed Bingo as the deadliest sport in the country, the empty marxist promise of Poundland’s false advertising and Aldi being responsible for Princess Diana, 1930’s throwback comedic investigator Troy Hawke returns, applying his scrabble mentalism to Kanye West, xenophobia and the ugly truth of Ikea’s link to the CIA
