19th June 2011 – EDINBURGH PREVIEW: Carey Marx & Andrew O’Neill

Sadly, Phil Nichol has had to cancel this Preview date due to the filming schedule for a  new BBC drama about Monty Python. We are lining up a replacement to be announced shortly, so you can still expect a fantastic night of comedy, but if you have bought tickets to see Phil and would prefer a refund, please contact Ticketweb or the box office at the City Screen.

Carey Marx has been a circuit favourite for years mixing his own blend of dark humour with his mischeivious and gleeful delivery.  His willful disregard for the controversial and delicate is tempered beautifully by his ability to find joy in the most unexpected places.  This  hilarious mix of edgy topics and playful gagsmithery can be seen at all the top clubs across the country with Marx regularly playing Jongleurs, Komedia and The Comedy Store and annually compering Reading, Leeds and Glastonbury Festivals.

Carey regularly comperes the best clubs in the country and plays at the most prestigious festivals.  His first solo show to appear at the Leicester Comedy Festival won a nomination for Best Show.
Carey has performed all over the world including a run in the Middle East and he performed at the New Zealand Comedy Festival for the first time last year scooping the award for Best International Show.

Funny comedy show by longhaired man (includes short play about gravy). All styles of comedy covered, guaranteed (some twice). **** (Chortle.co.uk), **** (List), **** (Metro). ‘Andrew O’Neill is like comedy ball-lightning. Fast, electrifying and even funnier than the misfortunes of others’ (Alan Moore: Watchmen, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), ‘One of the most distinctive, imaginative comedians emerging today … approaching the top of his craft’ (Scotsman), ‘Always a delight’ (Time Out).
