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:
Micky Overman: Role Model (Work in Progress)
Rising star Micky Overman presents her highly anticipated debut show. Being a nanny and raising a teenage girl, Micky figures out how to set an example when she herself has made some pretty questionable choices. She'll try and discover the best path to become a cool and collected human woman. Expect devastating honesty, a hint of silliness, a ton of good advice and some absolute filth. Nominee: Chortle Best Newcomer 2018. Finalist: Funny Women and Leicester Square New Comedian 2016. 'A keen comic mind' (Steve Bennett, Chortle.co.uk). 'Brutal and dark' (Bruce Dessau, BeyondTheJoke.co.uk).
Jamali Maddix: Vape Lord (Work in Progress)
Critically acclaimed comedian and host of Viceland’s Hate Thy Neighbour, Jamali Maddix is previewing his new show before heading up to Edinburgh. He’ll be bringing brutally honest and unflinching material on the state of society along with personal tales from his travels around the world of hate and moral confrontation. As seen on Live at the Apollo (BBC Two), The John Bishop Show (BBC One), 8 Out of 10 Cats (More4). ‘Something to offend everyone’ **** (Sunday Times). 'If you are easily offended stay away. If you think you’re not, prepare to be challenged' ***** (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine).
