Hot on the heels of his totally sold-out Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2023 season, which saw him add 2000 extra seats to what was only his second-ever Edinburgh Fringe, Scottish comedian Connor Burns is set to embark on a debut national tour with his critically acclaimed show Vertigo.

Vertigo is a punchline-packed show featuring relationships, submarines, and the inevitable family drama. Hilarious, relatable and a bit rude in places, Connor's quick wit entwined with his sharp material has seen him become one of Scotland's fastest rising comedy stars.

From his highly controversial shocking suggestions for coping with the cost-of-living crisis if you have a big family, to his side-splitting fascination with accents and their effect when away from home, and his hilarious aversion to drinking with Millennials, Burns makes the most of his exceptional wit to provide caustic observations on everything and anything, from the mundane quotidian to the meaning of life.

His modest stage presence combined with outstanding comic timing sees him effortlessly land punchline after punchline, all perfectly timed, as quips fly at the audience at lightning-fast frequency. Burns is fearless when it comes to close-to-the bone humour, and nothing and no one is spared. But his comedy is expertly composed and delicately pitched; meaning no matter how shocking the material, there is no punching down.

Connor Burns: Vertigo is the first-ever UK tour by an exciting and fresh artist, who is universally expected to go all the way to the top.
