Rollup, roll up! Everybody's 18th-favourite absurd comedian, Joey Page (Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Luxury Comedy, and BBC3's Comedy presents) comes roaring back to Edinburgh with a silly, irreverent technicoloured extravaganza to make you forget about rising house prices or that row you had with your lover over dinner.

Joey has spent the last few years bouncing around the comedy circuit, supporting the likes of Josie Long and Noel Fielding and appearing on shows such as BBC3's Comedy Marathon, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy.

Like all good comics Joey has his vices, But unlike the glamourous addictions of fast cars and women, Joey has become addicted to game shows, He feasts himself on the fantasy that he has been on them all from stellar shows like Strike it Lucky to never before seen 'Kerry Katona's: Buffet island' winning nothing but an ornament cabinet and a years supply of Iceland finger foods!

So what does a man do when he's run out of fantasy Quizzes to appear on? He creates his own! But with his obsession for quizmastery having cost him his girlfriend and job along the way we join a desperate man who needs the show to be a glorious triumph. Will everything go smoothly? Of course not, where is the comedy in that?

Watch Joey unravel as he plays out the debut outing of his very own quiz show.

This Is Not A Circus with a roster of eccentric rounds and zany tasks to truly bamboozle his contestants. Get ready for 'Nest café', 'Whipsnade and I', 'Fact or False' and Barry Manilow Knows His Onions and other nonsense...

Joey has is one of comedy's most likeable and excitable personalities and his breed of offbeat, quirky whimsical humour has been doing wonders for the reputation of silliness since he started out in 2009.
