Beverley Hills Pancake BitchAs a kid, Cormac was told the world was his oyster. As an adult, Cormac lives in ex-council Leeds housing and cannot afford an oyster. Come hear how an encounter with a waitress on LA’s Rodeo Drive caused him to reassess his life, lower his expectations and cry like a sissy.
Rob Mulholland and Monty Burns
Two of the fastest rising comics in the North of England and bring their debut Edinburgh appearance to the Free Festival this year. An anarchic onslaught of belly laughs from a Scottish drunk and a Yorkshire stoner as they tear apart their personal failings, shambolic lives and each other. A show packed full of laughter, wit and unexpected surprises!cheers lads
Monty is an anarchic, manic presence, bringing rapid-fire wit in a high-energy, punchline heavy style.
Rob is a very tall Yorkshireman with an odd mind. His style is a mixture of verbally dextrous polemic, intimate confession and dumb jokes about olives.
