WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Jarlath Regan - Award winning comedian, writer and star of the hit Irish panel show, The Panel, Jarlath Regan has gained a reputation with the industry and audiences for his uplifting, inventive and relentlessly funny stand-up, enjoying sell-out runs at the Fringe since 2007. A finalist in both the BBC and Channel 4 New Comedy Awards, Jarlath's first published book How To Break Bad News was an instant best-seller. It gained many celebrity fans including Ardal O'Hanlon who called it "Original, funny and deliciously wrong!" Jarlath's second book Putting A Ring On It - What Not To Do When Attempting To Get Married became a cult hit in his homeland. David Baddiel: Fame: Not the Musical - Fame: our society is obsessed with it ? but who will talk honestly about what it's really like? David Baddiel, in his first full Edinburgh show for fifteen years, does. From accidentally stealing the spotlight at Russell Brand's wedding, to realising Andrew Lloyd Webber cannot tell him apart from Ben Elton, David Baddiel takes aim at himself, and examines his strange relationship with the New Lad/Token Jew/Comedy rock'n'roller/Football singer-songwriter that people see him as. A "very funny and thought-provoking" (Veronica Lee, Daily Telegraph) meditation on a life lived in - and out - of fame.
