Press coverage

Full press release

Following appearances on Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC Two) and Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy (E4), charming surrealist and alternative comedy's best kept secret, Joey Page brings his breakthrough show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, performing for the first time in the prestigious Pleasance Courtyard.

Join Joey Page, the one and only 'unobservational comedian (TM)', for an hour packed full of homemade technology, Joey's characteristic plays, readings from his dog's diary and guaranteed prizes in a shambolic new quiz.

Joey Page bristles with technicolour imagery, scatterbrain flights of fancy, delightfully abstract whimsy and offbeat charm. Growing up on a cultural diet of Vic and Bob, Ian Dury and WWF wrestling, Joey's influences as a young lad fuelled his flamboyant metamorphosis from cockney chav into charming oddball, which is very evident in the dreamlike escapist world he creates on stage. His humour is an antidote to the mainstream and Reality Is Outside, Paradise Is In Your Brain provides everything you need to escape the ordinary.

Joey Page's TV credits include Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Never Mind the Buzzcocks Christmas Special (BBC Two), BBC Comedy Marathon (BBC Three), Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy (E4) and Coachtrip (Channel 4). Joey is also developing a number of ideas for TV and radio, regularly performs at leading comedy nights including Up the Creek and Knock2Bag and will, this summer, perform at Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and End of the Road festivals.
