The Duke of Comedy - Edinburgh Fringe Preview Show (May)

Thu 2nd May 2019
The Duke of Edinburgh, Cumbria, LA14 5QR

Edinburgh Fringe preview comedy night in Barrow-in-Furness @ The Duke of Edinburgh

Thursday 2nd May 2019

Josh Pugh will be doing an hour long preview of his Edinburgh Fringe show.


Hot off winning the Midland New Act of the Year in 2014 and 2015, Josh Pugh rapidly shot to the upper echelons of UK stand-up, winning English Comedian of the Year 2016, only two years after playing his first gig. He also won the Funhouse Gong Show as well as the Best New Act prizes at both the 2015 Birmingham and Nottingham Comedy Festivals. Josh’s clever, original, and (most importantly) very funny writing and performing continues to bring in plaudits, from Chortle to the Londonist to the London Evening Standard, and he undoubtedly has a blindingly bright future.

Winner English Comedian of the Year 2016

"Offbeat ideas, strong imagery and dry observational asides, he finds laughs in unusual places. A promising voice" - Chortle

"Pleasingly off the beaten track"- The Londonist

"A keen comic mind" - London Evening Standard

The support act for the night will be Pete Phillipson.

Originally from Lincolnshire, Manchester based Pete has been building a name for himself on the circuit as a fantastically funny act over the last few years, mixing fast paced observations and routines with wonderful characterisations.

"Great act with a big future" - Laughing Stock Comedy
