Gilded Balloon: The Turret – 2nd – 27th August
2013’s So You Think You’re Funny winner Edd Hedges returns to the scene of his victory with his debut show Wonderland at the Gilded Balloon.
Edd wants to tell you a story because last year, something happened in his village that changed everything. It’s a show about growing up, masculinity and the night he remembered to lock the door…
With an incredibly endearing stage presence, Essex-boy Edd Hedges has a natural affinity with an audience and since winning So You Think You’re Funny in 2013 his career has skyrocketed. Being a runner-up in subsequent finals of Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year and Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of the Year, Edd went on to feature in Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, Just The Tonic’s Big Value Show and the Machynlleth Comedy Festival. He has featured on BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club with Arthur Smith as well as guest starred in Sofie Hagen’s Made of Human podcast.
Edd is also an in-demand regular of the UK circuit takinng his unique style of ridiculous anecdotes to various comedy clubs such as Glee, The 99 Club, Banana Cabaret, Jongleurs, Komedia and the family-friendly show, Comedy Club 4 Kids. Most recently, he has been performing as Sofie Hagen’s tour support.
