In preparation for the Edinburgh Festival, Sunil Patel
(pampered, sullen oaf) and Richard Todd (ex-fruit & veg salesman) prospect once more for gold in the river of comedy; expect grit, funny shaped pebbles and 3 carat nuggets. And metaphors.
Come! Marvel at their gold! Feel their pebbles! Admire their grit!
“A clearly gifted comedian with a comfy and approachable style, he is as self-aware and structurally subversive as any of the Fringe’s great alternative comedians, without fitting directly into that bracket. It’s material that could work anywhere and appeal to most, whilst being subtle and clever” – Edfestmag, Edinburgh 2016
“Sunil Patel oozes funny like a jammy doughnut running down a diner’s chin. Sometimes looking at his expressionless facade, I wonder whether he even realises how funny he is” – Broadway Baby, Edinburgh 2016
“…he might be a psychopath” – The Scotsman, Edinburgh 2016
Chortle Best Newcomer Nominee 2013
BBC New Comedy Award Finalist 2012
‘Constructing complex, bewilderingly intricate sentences from the far reaches of a vast vocabulary, he occasionally calls to mind a persecuted Daniel Kitson, or an intelligent Russell Brand. Ultimately though, Todd emerges as a talent entirely of his own. The left-field subject matter he tackles is rooted in the everyday, and we identify with him for all his wildly eccentric thoughts and behaviour.’ Lewis Porteous, Fest
‘Flashes of brilliance with complex, imaginative surrealism and an endearingly chaotic style’ – *The Skinny*
‘Richard Todd is a funny funny man. A Properly talented comic.’ – *Kate Copstick, The Scotsman*
‘… An inventive comic thinker,with surrealism that creates weird imagery with robust, if unlikely, internal logic. He delivers with the passion of an insane preacher, and there’s a keen off-the-wall wit throughout…’ – *Steve Bennet, Chortle*
