Luisa Omielan & James Phelan announced for EdFringe 2019!
16th May 2019
We told you once, we told you twice, we told you THREE TIMES that we weren’t done with the EdFringe announcements. So here we, back once again for the renegade master(s)! Get yourselves ready for the incredible return of the one and only LUISA OMIELAN, and the Edinburgh Fringe debut of JAMES PHELAN!
LUISA OMIELAN: POLITICS FOR BITCHES (EXTENDED CUT)
She’s fierce, fiery, and fucking over this bullshit. Luisa makes her triumphant return to the Edinburgh Fringe! One year after her BBC1 and BBC 3 series ‘Politics For Bitches’ earned her a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit title.
Luisa is famous for tackling the important issues facing the younger generations; like politics, mental health and women. And even those issues that not all of us completely understand like the depth of our collective love for Beyoncé.
So Luisa returns with her groundbreaking live show ‘Politics For Bitches: Extended Cut’. Perhaps you saw the one hour show in 2018? Well strap in and get ready for the full blown experience. Prepare for 2 hours of uncut, unedited and unfuckingbelieveable stand-up from one of the UK’s leading comedians.
You can find Luisa at the EdFringe performing in the Gilded Balloon – Teviot House’s Debating Hall. She’s on at 9pm for three nights only: 23rd, 24th and 25th August 2019.
JAMES PHELAN: TROUBLEMAKER
It’s not that often we get a fringe debut of this calibre. But there’s definitely reason to celebrate! James Phelan is the nephew of the great Paul Daniels & Debbie Mcgee, so magic clearly flows through his veins. This mischief-maker will be bringing an hour of perfectly orchestrated magical mayhem to the EdFringe. So, what scale are we talking? Well, you can check out this video of him accidentally dropping someone phone in the Thames.
Even though you may not know his face, you might have heard him before. James is the UK’s only radio magician! Unbelievably, over the soundwaves of BBC Radio he’s predicted the lottery, read peoples minds and managed to get people to FORGET HOW TO READ.
Catch James at the EdFringe with his show TROUBLEMAKER at the Gilded Balloon – Teviot House, Dining room at 6:45pm. He’s on every day from the 31st July to August 26th (but not 14th).
