'Funny as hell' (Scotland on Sunday). 'Absolutely hilarious... An hour with Hill makes for a cracking show. He has the rare ability to make any audience feel like part of an intimate gathering. Magical!' (List).

Full press release

Scotland's favourite comic whirlwind hurtles back to the stage of the Underbelly Cowbarn this year for an hour of whip-crackingly exuberant and deliciously wicked comedy.

With his cheeky, irreverent and, of course, wonderfully camp blend of incisive stand-up, razor-sharp improvisation and fabulous musical characterisations, he has become one of Scotland's best-loved exports. His boundless energy, pitch-perfect stagecraft and superb audience rapport are perfectly matched to make each and every one of his live shows a joyously entertaining experience.

Craig has firmly established himself as one of the UK's best-loved entertainers with five BBC TV series to his name and many more guest appearances besides. He has sold out all his previous Edinburgh Festival Fringe seasons, each year's show subsequently going on to tour successfully throughout the UK and internationally. In 2008 he starred in the UK tour of the hit show (and Eurovision Song Contest satire) Eurobeat - almost Eurovision. He also performed a 35 minute extended solo set at The London Palladium (where he received a massive ovation) and was invited by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber to present a specially created alternative variety show, Craig Hill's Forbidden Vaudeville.

After his 2012 debut at the Adelaide Fringe where he had a hugely successful season, he went on to sell out his subsequent run at the 2012 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and performed another highly successful season in Sydney being hailed as one of the stars of the Sydney International Comedy Festival as well as starring in Australia's prestigious Cracker Night Comedy show. He was also recently seen on TV's The Best Of Just For Laughs, a storming performance recorded in Montreal alongside other alumni, thereby truly cementing his reputation as one of the 'must see' performers whenever he visits anywhere in the world.
