Tara Newton-Wordsworth & Simon Caine Edinburgh Fringe Preview

Two Edinburgh Fringe Previews for just 9!

Show 1 - Simon Caine - Every Room Becomes a Panic Room When You Over Think Enough.

Comedian Simon Caine is going to Edinburgh 2019 with a new show. In order to do that, he needs to try out his new jokes on you, YES you.

In this latest show Simon looks at his relationship with happiness and social media and how they don't work together with "Quick one-liners [that] rub shoulders with more involved material that rewards you paying full attention" (The Wee Review) and "[his] eccentric turns of phrase and paranoid persona is immediately entertaining, and his tales of irrational exaggeration are simultaneously relatable"(Broadway Baby).

I've come close to winning 4 national comedy awards (semi-finalist), done over 1,300 gigs and toured the UK three times...if you like hilarious storytelling, witty one-liners and structured narrative-led comedy, this is the show for you.

Quotes from industry / comedians / writers about Simon -

“You’re a more authentic John Oliver” - comedian Doug Stanhope

“That was awesome. I liked it… I don’t know why. But it was great. I’ll have you back” – Mike Manera (Piccadilly Comedy Club)

“What you’re doing is great… the problem is nobody understands it.” – Iain Coyle (Dave TV Comedy Commissioner)

“This is one of the few comedians to make me howl with laughter this year…” – comedian Adam Bloom

 

Show 2 - Tara Newton-Wordsworth - Motherhood: A Comedy

Tara has two children under two (yes they were both planned, thank you for asking...) and is exploiting them for as much comedy material as possible.

Having grown up on a biodynamic farm in Western Australia, she muses on marriage and raising children in the modern UK, versus growing up in the outback and being home schooled by hippies.

From group pelvic floor exercises to googling how to change a nappy, Tara's debut hour delves into the hilarious (often sanity threatening) world of parenthood.

‘Very talented and very of the moment’ (Stephen Fry). ‘Hilarious’ ★★★★★ (Sun). www.taranewtonwordsworth.com
