The free fringe can occasionally surprise you with a show you would pay good money for, Gags, Songs and Bombs is definitely that!

Described as a "chuckle sandwich" it features three fast rising stand-ups performing a 20 minute set each. Gary Tro kicks off proceedings, a likeable stand up, he does a great line in anecdotal, narrative based stand up including a strong routine based around a doomed game of paintball.

The lovely Kate Lucas, has a fantastic set of comedy songs. Her songs are blackly hysterical and lyrically brilliant as well as incredibly hummable, especially one named "Betty" describing her love affair with a geriatric.

Tez Ilyas is already making a name for himself and was a runner up in the BBC’s new act of the year competition, for good reason. The Hilarious Tez had the crowd in stitches with his rock paper scissors routine, he controls the crowd with the confidence of a well-practiced comic.

Do yourself a favour, see this show so you can tell friends in ten years you saw these guys before they were big.
