Big Boys and Friends is a silly lil' mixed-bill comedy-cabaret from Channel 4's critically acclaimed Big Boys, comedian Jack Rooke and character comic Jon Pointing. For the final week of the Fringe, we've gathered our good pals from the worlds of comedy, cabaret and Costa Coffee (Waverley Station branch) and some brilliant comics from the series, all to perform a late-night, chilled, fun hour just for you, then we'll all go get a crepe after. Jack Rooke is 'effortlessly charming comedy' **** (Guardian). Jon Pointing is a 'deliciously daft character-comic' **** (Guardian).
