Press coverage

Full press release

The war has ended. No one has told Pat. Isolated in an underground bunker, Pat Cahill keeps busy with tales of the wilderness and reworkings of wartime tunes, in this gloriously imaginative hour of neo-music hall nonsense.

Pat Cahill returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with Panjandrum a collection of stories and songs inspired by the ludicrously silly and the unpretentiously absurd. From his underground bunker, Pat talks about his life above ground, including how his quest to find solitude in London led him to a primitive existence on an out of service tube train, as well as his first foray into comedy as a four-year-old novice entertainer. As the days pass, he delights the troops (audience) with inspired music hall performances and physical comedy. Pat Cahill's gloriously imaginative style has placed him among comedy's best-loved eccentrics, and after scooping up comedy awards aplenty, his return to the festival is not to be missed.
