Hidden Gems Festival 2016: Joanna Neary + Tom Crosbie
The finest alternative acts from Fringe 2016
Head on down to the Prince Of Wales to see some genuine comic talent from this year's Fringe. Reacting to political turmoil, class struggles and bothersome intrusive thoughts, Joanna Neary’s show is a standup splendour. Be sure to expect ludicrous impressions, ill-advised dancing, celebrations of art, education and lamps. (As a baby, Joanna was dropped on her head and stolen from outside Coventry Library. She started work aged 12 picking moss on Bodmin Moor. She avoided getting beaten up by pretending to be French and dislikes the fashion for bags that look like bums. At polytechnic, Joanna paid by cheque for a Pot Noodle.) Meanwhile Tom Crosbie presents an entertaining combo of maths, memory, and Rubik's cubes. Dubbed the most talented nerd in the world, you can join Tom on the scenic route to his own self-improvement as he masters talents nobody knew he needed. You know you're in safe hands with these two. Lineup: - 7.30pm: Joanna Neary Does Animals And Men - 9:00pm: Tom Crosbie – Nerd Do Well Over 18s only. Valid ID required.
"Hilarious, off-kilter talent."
