18 & 19 Oct - 8pm - Phil Kay (UK)
“One of the greatest comedic odysseys ever witnessed - ☆☆☆☆☆”
“It’s easy to get lost in Kay-world”
“So much humour it’s hard to breathe.”
Striding across the stage with an affable charm and absurdity that leaves
audiences on the edge of their seats, Phil Kay is Scottish, hairy, and known to bathe
crowds in a waterfall of comic positivity. Spanning close to three decades, Phil’s
career began when he won ‘So You Think You’re Funny’, the Edinburgh Fringe
Festival’s newcomers competition in 1989. Not looking back since, Phil has taken the
comedy world by storm, with a Perrier Award nomination soon after, a BBC’s ‘Best British Stand-up’ Award, and more recently, a ‘Best Comedy Show’ nomination at the
2017 World Fringe.
From regular appearances on BBC1’s The Standup Show, Phil hosted his
very own comedy series titled Phil Kay Feels on Channel 4. Other television work
includes Next Stop, Phil Kay (Channel 4), Edinburgh Nights (BBC1), and The
Montreal Festival of Fun (Channel 5). Phil has also worked with the likes of Eddie
Izzard, Harry Hill, Ardal O’Hanlon, Jonathan Ross, and has featured on BBC’s QI
and Russell Howard’s Good News.
Besides regular appearances at the Fringe and other comedy festivals across
the world, namely the Adelaide and Melbourne Comedy Festivals, Phil is a tour de
force of eclecticism that is bound to leave you begging for more!
