Malcolm Hardee Award nominee and Best Show Winner Buxton Fringe 2014, in the first of a trilogy of new solo shows for 2015. After a chance encounter with Doctor Emmett Brown, Nathan realises there is only one thing that has really changed over the last 30 years. It isn't flying cars. And it's about to ruin all of our lives. 'Cassidy creates great energy on the stage, building an immediate rapport with the audience. Cassidy hits it on the nose ... a must see show' **** (CoolAsLeicester.co.uk, 2015). 'A great comedian' **** (BroadwayBaby.com).

The unavoidable Lewis Schaffer & the African President

Yesterday, I was talking to critic Kate Copstick and I think we came to the conclusion that, this year at the Edinburgh Fringe, there is no one 'hot' act whom everyone is talking about.

Fringe: some shows, bridge dangling and romance

My yesterday at the Edinburgh Fringe started with a Danish man playing the bagpipes and ended with a policeman.

I'm doing three shows about Back To The Future

I'm doing three brand new solo shows this year - Back to the Future I, II and III - to coincide with the year that they went into the future to in the second film, which people have said is impressive. It's only really impressive though if they're good though, right?

Nathan Cassidy - Back to the Future baby!

Malcolm Hardee Award nominee Nathan Cassidy returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with no less than three shows. If your life had a sequel, would it be better, or would you waste that second chance on a story with no soul? Martin Walker accesses his inner geek to discuss the Back to the Future trilogy.

More details

2015 is the year they went into the future to in Back to the Future II, so award-winning comedian Nathan Cassidy (Malcolm Hardee Award Nominee and Best Show Winner Buxton Fringe 2014) uses this year as a chance to look back 30 years to his childhood, and forward 30 years to his demise as he brings three brand new solo shows to one Fringe!

In the first show, he looks forward 30 years and tries to eradicate the one thing that is set to ruin all of our lives, in the second show he goes back to before he was born as he explores reincarnation, sequels and second chances, and in the third he goes back 30 years to his Birmingham school days to explain the driving force behind all of these shows as he tries to change the past and secure a brighter future.

Nathan Cassidy is an award-winning comedian known for his innovation in solo shows; he has spent the last three years paying his audience to watch him(!), has sold out for the last five years on the Edinburgh Fringe and became the Ladbrokes favourite for the Edinburgh Comedy Award in 2013 after giving away bets on him winning. He also hosts Edinburgh and London sell-out hit The Rat Pack Stand-up Comedy.

Back To The Future I: After a chance encounter with Dr Emmett Brown, Nathan realises that only one thing has really changed over the last 30 years - it isn't flying cars, and it's about to ruin all of our lives. But maybe if we all come together we can stop it, with a little something Nathan has invented - time travel! Travel with Nathan 30 years into the past, and then into the future as he attempts to save us all.
