The Comedy Cow with Dane Baptiste Friday, 17 May 2019
It has been a few years since Dane last performed at Red Dot, but we are excited to have him with us again in 2019.
Original, provocative and exceptionally prolific – Baptiste is already being hailed as one of the most exciting acts to break in years. The London born stand up made comedy history in 2014 as the first black British act to be nominated for a Comedy Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.Read more … about Dane Baptiste
He had incredible success with his debut stand up show Citizen Dane, completing two sold out runs at London’s Soho Theatre (with additional dates added due to phenomenal demand). He has since written and starred in his own BBC sitcom series and made numerous other TV and radio appearances. His second stand up show Reasonable Doubts was met with sold out audiences and huge critical acclaim at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe, with his first nationwide solo tour following in 2016. In 2017, he presented his third stand up hour G.O.D. (Gold. Oil. Drugs.) about our worldwide pursuit of wealth, power and pleasure which achieved another total sell out run.
Credits include hosting Live at the Apollo (BBC Two), Tonight at the London Palladium (ITV1), Mock the Week (BBC Two), Live from the BBC (BBC Two), 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4) and his own BBC sitcom, Sunny D.
Edd is by far a Comedy Cow virgin and has been wripping up the comedy circuit for many year. Edd was last with us in 2017 our Milton Keynes Comedy Cow Festival.
WINNER of So You Think You're Funny award and star of BBC's Edinburgh Presents, Edd Hedges, has an incredibly likeable stage presence. He's a fantastic story teller, "the controlled yarn spinning of Sarah Kendall." (Skinny) he's performed across Europe as well as at Montreal's Just For Laughs Comedy Festival and the Adelaide Fringe.
He now makes his Leicester Comedy Festival debut with his brand-new show.Read more … about Edd Hedges
