Roll up, Roll up for the 5th Penny Gaff... Alternative Cabaret with a spoken word spine hosted by the delightful Jonny Fluffypunk, stand-up poet, sit-up storyteller, give-up guitarist. Mr Fluffypunk's Penny Gaff proudly welcomes Edward Aczel, Britain's greatest living anti-comedian. The king of the awkward silence and the feeble flip-chart graph. The foremost exponent of stumbling, mumbling, fumbling and getting it painfully wrong. An absurdist clown for the 21st Century. Winner of the 2008 Malcolm Hardee award for originality in comedy; Runner up (2005) in both BBC New Comedy Awards and Jimmy Carr's Comedy Idol, Edward Aczel has performed six sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival, including 'Trust Me,There Is No Hope', 'Ever Tried? Ever Failed? No Matter. Try Again. Fail Again. Fail Better.' and 'Edward Aczel: Lives In A Meaningless Shed'. 'There is no one quite like Edward Aczel. If the world is waiting for the ultimate anti-stand-up the wait is over. Quite how someone can be so hilarious without any actual jokes is nothing short of sheer genius.' Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
George Chopping -'Customer focused, hard working, honest and flexible' oddball Oxford-based bard. An Edinburgh veteran and regular on the national circuit, George is a firm favourite of John Hegley and Simon Munnery, which is as ringing an endorsement as you'll get round these parts without actually involving bells. “Had the audience in hysterics”- Sunday Times
Also where would we be without Bill Jones? Who's a ray of bloody sunshine, eh? DJs Harvey & Ollie will be spinning choons til late! Plus Films, Competitions and Prizes!
