Jordan Brookes: Work in Progress

  • Sunday18/02/2018
    5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

A fourth hour on the trot from Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best show nominee 2017 Jordan Brookes. Here, over 2 nights, he presents an experimental work-in-progress of intricately ambitious stand-up. Expect the usual silly faces and unnecessary confessions, mixing the philosophical and the physical, the observational and the absurd.

In last year’s show Body of Work, Brookes told a joke that caused a ripple of upset in his personal life. In this new show he explores our crippling epidemic of self-absorption and the frustrations in our failure to get our story straight, no matter how many times we run through it in our heads.
