Last year's hit show, Voices in Your Head, created by Deborah Frances-White and featuring a changing cast of some of the fringe's best comedy performers, returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Thursday - Saturday's only, from 1st - 24th August at The Pleasance Courtyard. Plus this year, a very special new show has spun from the original production. The Phill Jupitus Experiment sees Deborah's creation take on just one unsuspecting comedian and regular 'Voices' guest ... Phill Jupitus. This new show will see Phill face The Voice alone at The Pleasance Dome from 31st July - 26th August.
Voices in Your Head takes the UK's best stand up, sketch and character comedians and puts their brilliant minds in overdrive and challenges them to reveal more than ever before. They have no idea what they're doing until 'The Voice' inspires, cajoles and interrogates them. Catch these fantastic comics perform as you've never seen them before: uncensored, out of control and funnier than ever. Previous guests have included Hannibal Buress, Russell Tovey, Miles Jupp, Thom Tuck, Humphrey Ker, Sara Pascoe, Mike McShane, Pippa Evans, Andre Vincent, Felicity Ward and Kerry Howard.
