From the quote attributed to Mark Twain, humour is defined as Tragedy Plus Time. Come and join Ed as he tests that formula by mining the most tragic event in his life for laughs.

Edinburgh Fringe 2023 was a bumper 5 star review year for Ed. They came in thick and fast alongside outstanding critical acclaim for this exceptionally funny, ‘Best Reviewed Stand Up Show at Edinburgh 2023’ (British Comedy Guide).

In the UK Ed has Hosted Live At The Apollo, and is a QI and Mock The Week regular (all BBC) in Australia Ed has been seen on Australia’s Hey, Hey It’s Saturday (9Network), Melbourne Comedy Gala (ABC) and in New Zealand on 7 Days (TV3) as well as Hosting the New Zealand Comedy Fest TV Gala (NZTV).
