The Deli Comedy Festival is a month-long season of previews of some of the best comedy that will be appearing at this year’s Edinburgh Festival and beyond. Whether it is the latest material from those names we know and love, or discovering the new generation of comics breaking through, this exciting new festival will bring an explosive burst of cutting edge comedy to audiences across London.
Tonight, the Deli Comedy Festival Presents:
Felicity Ward: Busting a Nut (Work in Progress)
Australian comic & actor, Felicity Ward has taken the British Comedy scene by storm - having headlined ‘Live From the BBC’ for BBC Two and appearing on ‘Mock The Week’ (BBC Two), ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’ (BBC3), ‘Alan Davies’ As Yet Untitled’ (Dave), BBC3’s ‘Red Button Comedy’, ‘The John Bishop Show’ (BBC1). In 2015 Felicity stormed the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with solo show, ‘What if There is No Toilet?’, earning the 3rd highest reviewed show of the festival and went on to win the award for Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival the following year. Back again on UK soil, Felicity took her hotly anticipated follow-up solo show, ‘50% More Likely to Die’, to the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, she looks forwards to returning this summer with her brand new show
Sheeps: Live and Loud Selfie Sex Harry Potter (Work in Progress)
Everything is going well in the wider world. No crises on the horizon. Seeing that the coast is finally clear, the Sheeps three are reuniting, despite never having broken up. It will be lots of new sketches and no old sketches. So if you mainly like our older stuff then this one’s not for you. But if you want to see new (wiser) sketches from some old masters (Time Out’s ‘Ones To Watch, 2011') then see it. ‘Clever, arch and multi-layered… hilarious’ (Guardian). ‘The future of British comedy’ (Skinny).
