After the success of last year's season, Comedy at the Con is delighted to present three nights (Thursday 5th, 12th and 19th) of warm up shows for the Edinburgh Festival with some of the biggest names in comedy, doing 50 plus minutes of their brand new show! For 19/07 we present ZOE LYONS and JIM TAVARE --

ZOE LYONS took her first steps down the comedy path in 2003 after training as an actress at the Poor School in London. She went on to win the Funny Women Competition in 2004 and her debut Edinburgh show was nominated for the if.comedy newcomer award. In 2008 she won the Dave, Funniest Joke of The Fringe Award. The rest, as they say, is geography.

“Always fizzling with indignation and throwing out a hugely enjoyable mix of brutal putdowns and richly funny stories, Lyons has what it takes to delight any crowd.” THE GUARDIAN

“Her routine was a fireproof parade of quick fire observational gags delivered with utter conviction and unfailing professionalism. The audience didn’t really have a chance.” CHORTLE

“Lyons has personality and real skill” BRIAN LOGAN 4 STAR GUARDIAN REVIEW

JIM TAVARE-FROM DEADPAN TO BEDPAN  In 2017 comedian Jim Tavaré (BAFTA-award winner, Harry Potter actor & double bassist) was involved in a near fatal head-on automobile collision in Los Angeles. Returning to the Edinburgh Fringe for the first time in 20 years, he tells the story of how a quick trip to the shops changed his life forever. Don’t worry, it’s a comedy show. Directed by Henry Normal

“One of the funniest and most original performers around.” (The Independent)

“The iconic deadpan master with timing to die for” (Al Murray)
