Let’s get Katerina Vrana back on stage

Many of you remember our very own Katerina Vrana, we’re sure, for her fabulous MC-ing at Angel, her extraordinary hair, and her boundless energy. 

In December 2016 Katerina was a finalist in a “funniest person in the world” competition and as she made the top 3 she was invited out to Malaysia to perform. Whilst there, she came down with what she thought was food poisoning — but it was much more serious than that.  

Katerina suffered an intestinal perforation which led to septicaemia (blood poisoning) and sceptic shock. She was in a critical condition and spent 2 months in the intensive care unit in Malaysia. 
You can hear her story in her own (very funny) words here.

Katerina was paralysed from the neck down and went blind. However, her great sense of humour and her ridiculously amazing hair remained unaffected. There were three separate occasions in which she nearly lost her life.

The following year Katerina also developed problems with her speech, which has made it difficult for her to speak clearly. Hair update: still fab.

The doctors cannot believe that she is alive and making such good progress. 

After two years in and out of hospitals and clinics in the UK, Switzerland and her native Greece, Katerina can now stand and walk with assistance. Her sight and speech are getting stronger every day. She now needs full time care and intensive daily physio. Unfortunately, her medical insurance does not cover long term rehabilitation.

This woman is the future of comedy and a phenomenal inspiration to anyone who has wanted to follow the career they love. She put blood, sweat and tears into comedy (quite literally) and it was just starting to pay off. So… if you’ve seen her perform… or perhaps you’re a performer yourself and remember her as fondly as we do… then whatever you can afford…

Let’s help get her back to where she belongs. On stage, killing it. She nearly died!! 3 times!!

Berk’s Nest: All Day Preview Festival at The Bill Murray!

A full day of previews from Berk’s Nest! 

You can buy tickets for individual shows for £5 or pay £10 to see all the shows!

Featuring:

2-3 pm Arabella Weir – Does My Mum Loom Big In This? 

The mother of all confessional shows from the bestselling author and star of The Fast Show and Two Doors Down. Does My Mum Loom Big In This? is for everyone who’s had a mother or been a mother, featuring hair-raising hilarious true stories from Arabella’s dysfunctional childhood, her perilous career and her life as a single working mother. Devastatingly funny, excruciatingly honest and definitely embarrassing for all of Arabella’s relatives, not to mention herself, this is a helter-skelter tour of appalling – and appallingly funny – maternal behaviour.

3:30-4:30 pm Chris Parker: Camp Binch 

New Zealand’s beloved sissy Chris Parker (as seen in Netflix’s The Breaker Upperers) is mincing his way over to Edinburgh with his award-winning Camp Binch. Winner of Best Show at NZ International Comedy Fest 2018, Camp Binch delivers a hilarious and cathartic retelling of growing up gay in conservative New Zealand. ‘He’s the one to watch that you’re probably already watching!’ (GayExpress.co.nz). ‘Leaves you inspired to make a difference’ (New Zealand Herald). Writer and star of New Zealand’s 7 Days, Jono and Ben, and Funny Girls.

5-6 pm Guy Montgomery: I Was Part Of The Problem Before We Were Talking About It 

Best Male Comedian winner, New Zealand Comedy Guild awards 2017. Best Show nominee, NZ International Comedy Festival 2017. Best Newcomer nominee, Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2016. It’s hard to believe, but Guy Montgomery hasn’t always been perfect. Embrace this rare opportunity to hear from someone unlearning the various blind spots that made him part of the problem before we were talking about it. ★★★★★ (KeepingUpWithNZ.com). ‘Intoxicating, enveloping and absurdly entertaining’ (NZ Herald). ‘A supremely gifted comic’ (Ruminator.co.nz).

6:30-7:30 pm Alice Snedden: Absolute Monster 

Who are we? What are we doing here? Do you like me? And what are you saying behind my back? Let’s all get together and definitively find out if I’m the best or worst person you know. Those are the only options. Step into my existential crisis and get ready to laugh as I try and answer the eternal question: who am I?. After a sell-out ‘barnstorming debut’ (Fest) in 2018, New Zealand’s Alice Snedden returns to Edinburgh. ‘Alice Snedden should be listed as one of New Zealand’s top outputs’ ★★★★★ (EdFestMag). 
Directed by Rose Matafeo.

8-9 pm Jack Barry: Alien 

Your best friend (and acclaimed stand-up) Jack Barry is worried about you. The world’s turned to shit and you haven’t been laughing enough. He’s going to roughly slap you around the face with his jokes and tell you to get a hold of yourself. Don’t worry – everything is going to be okay. As seen on The Russell Howard Hour and in Catastrophe, Cuckoo and Netflix’s Turn Up Charlie. Writer for Mock the Week. ‘The finest of British comedy… effortlessly endearing’ ★★★★★ (EdFestMag.com). ★★★★ (Sunday Times). ★★★★ (List). ★★★★ (Skinny).

9:30-10:30 SNORT 

New Zealand’s favourite comedy improv show Snort makes its way to Edinburgh for the first time! Cheeky, topical, and relentlessly silly, Snort sees NZ’s best young comedians (including Rose Matafeo, Guy Montgomery, Alice Snedden, Chris Parker) build an intricate hour of far-fetched, high-stakes comedy, entirely made up on the spot. ‘New Zealand’s coolest comedy improv group… the stuff of dreams’ (TheSpinoff.co.nz). ‘These are some New Zealanders we would be happy to claim as our own’ (SquirrelComedy.com).
