Pleasance London presents:

Edinburgh Preview Season 2013

Pleasance London is excited to announce its 2013 Edinburgh Preview Season. This year’s line up is our biggest ever with over 50 shows featuring some of the biggest names in comedy alongside fresh young talent. Ticket prices start from just £5.

Pleasance London is once again delivering the cutting edge in comedy with brand new shows from established comedians Russell Kane, Alex Horne, Nick Helm and David Baddiel.  Fringe favourites topping the bill include Terry Alderton (Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow), Carl Donnelly (Russell Howard’s Good News), sketch comedy group The Beta Males and Edinburgh Comedy Award winners Max and Ivan.

After taking a break from the festival Colin Hoult (Being Human, BBC3) Tom Wrigglesworth (2011 Sony Radio Award winner) and Brett Goldstein (2013 Dave / Leicester Comedy Festival – Best New Show) all make a welcome return this year alongside sell-out sketch duo The Pin and 2012 Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer Daniel Simonsen and Nominee David Trent.

Acts to watch out for, before they become household names include Pat Cahill (2012 Chortle Comedy Awards Best Newcomer), Pleasance Comedy Reserve star Suzy Bennett and Chortle Student Comedian of the Year Phil Wang.

There is also plenty of fun for all the family with BBC1 The Magicans star Pete Firman (“The UK’s leading comedy Magican” – Time Out) who will be opening a new box of magic tricks and fasten your seatbelts for riotous circus troupe Slighty Fat Features hilarious new show billed half Monty Python and half Cirque de Soliel.
