Brendon Burns: Outside The Box

November

30

Monday

Brendon Burns (Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2007) is dismayed with the live comedy scene in the UK and deep down, he knows you are too. A scene he used to love, that now seems more preoccupied with selling beer and easy laughs than finding a voice or even a point of view not normally heard. 

So he’s decided to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Doug Stanhope and Patton Oswalt in the US and leave the comedy clubs behind, touring absolutely anything but. From zoos to libraries, from old indy music venues to comic book stores, Brendon Burns is breaking out of the box.

This tour is aimed at those with their ears to the ground. Fans that are truly passionate about stand up and are sick to death of having anopportunity to see one of their favourite comedians in their local club ruined because a stag do didn't know when to keep quiet. Fans who are OK with sensitive subject matter and digging a little deeper to read the subtext within.

Burns is not your everyday comic. Older, wiser, calmer (and after being fitted with a hearing aid, infinitely quieter) Brendon’s energy is still enticing. His turn of phrase is coarse yet oddly eloquent, whilst remaining fully accessible and intensely loveable. 

Never pompous and ever self-deprecating he just somehow seems to get away with murder. His influence is ubiquitous throughout the stand up world. Often replicated but never matched, his shows aren’t just extended sets, Burns specialises in creating experiences: forever experimenting with the form and throwing himself new challenges.

Advance tickets are available now.

“The single most jaw-dropping, awkward, yet ultimately rewarding bit of stand up we have ever seen” ****** (An unprecedented six out of six stars) // Time Out, London

“His peers are not other stand ups but more from the literary World. Burns is the William Burroughs and Charles Bukowski of stand up” // William Cook, The Guardian
