Show details

Stand-up starring Sam Gore and Max Dickins that was performed at Espionage at 7:15pm for 1 hour, on the following days in August 2010.


Two rising stars share a bill in an hour of stand-up that's guaranteed to be one of the safest bets at the Festival. With six new act of the year' awards between them, this pair are two of the hottest newcomers on the circuit, with Sam holding the coveted Laughing Horse title and Max hosting his own Sony Award-nominated show on Absolute Radio. Edinburgh is about taking risks, whether with suspect 3am takeaways or choosing which shows to catch but 'A Calculated Risk' is the most sensible gamble you can take in 2010.
