Dr Barnardo's Fringe Season - The Water Poet - 2017

Come and see the best of the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe without leaving London! 

Courtesy of Dr Barnardo's and the good people at The Water Poet.

The good doctor has compiled a season of special Edinburgh Previews showcasing the best of this year's Festival hosted from Shoreditch.

From Thursday June 22nd, every Thursday til July 20th.

Each night being a double-bill of two brilliant comedy one hour shows. 

So one price gets you two shows.

Unlike other charity events, all the money (100%) goes to Dr Barnardo's so no greedy middle men.


Thursday, July 20 (Night #5) is...

8pm- Darius Davis (2016 4 star show) - Road to Wrestlmania (in HD)

The true story of following your dreams and having them crushed... along with your bones! At 18, weighing a mere ten stone and possessing absolutely no athletic ability, Darius Davies decided a career in pro-wrestling was his dream. Shortly after coming to this conclusion, he suffered a life-changing injury. Road to Wrestlemania is a humorous, nostalgic tale featuring the lows and lows of aspiring to a pro-wrestling career. See actual x-rays and an audition video for Tough Enough, which is so bad you'll wince. A must-see comedy for fans and non-fans alike!


9:30pm - Sofie Hagen (2016 5 star show) - Dead Baby Frog

Sofie Hagen is back with her third show. The confidence of this girl is appalling.

This show is about anger and a funeral

★★★★ '... few comedians... make a room as warm as she does" - THE TIMES

★★★★★ “A warm, confident show…Hagen is hilarious”
