Show in Google Maps



A brand new stand-up show from the Fringe favourite. As heard on Radio 4's The News Quiz and The Now Show. TV appearances include Would I Lie to You, QI and Live at the Apollo. Wake-Up Call is a show about revelations, realisations and epiphanies - both large and small. Subjects covered include: bin collection schedules, the novels of Jean Rhys, cats, school-fair booze tombolas, the Scottish Enlightenment, pressure washers and Huel. It's an exuberant, silly show with some wisdom sprinkled on top. 'Impeccably punch-lined anecdotes... genuinely delightful' (Telegraph).

The Fringe may often focus on the bright new things - but there are also stalwarts who return time and again to present a new show to an attentive audience. We've dug out our dog-eared - and notably thin - 2002 Edinburgh Fringe programme to spotlight some comics still here 20 years on.

Lucy Porter interview

To be perfectly honest, I chose the title Wake-Up Call because I wanted to do the photoshoot for the poster in my pyjamas - I've found returning to proper clothes a bit of a challenge after lockdown.
