COMING UP: Comedy duo Daniel Simonson and Alfie Brown, Epstein Theatre, 19 Jan 2013

Prepare for a fantastic evening of comic campers as a double bill of smash-hit shows will be arriving this spring at The Epstein Theatre. Comedians Daniel Simonsen and Alfie Brown will be bringing their critically acclaimed, and uniquely individual, shows to the stage on January 19th for one hilarious night only.

Norway’s finest export, 2012’s Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award winner for Best Newcomer and described as “compelling” by The Guardian, Daniel Simonsen is destined for greatness. With appearances on Russell Howard’s Good News, the Simon Amstell tour and a mainstay at the benefits office in Bethnal Green, this brilliantly offbeat and distinctive comedian has been nominated, and won, awards both in the UK and his native Norway including Chortle Best Newcomer, Best Comedian at Comedy Fight Club and the So You Think You’re Funny competition. As a prime example of social awkwardness, public faux pas’ and with a pessimistic and surreal view of modern life, Daniel unique brand of subtle, but hilarious humour will light up the Epstein like never before.

An observational comedian at his finest, Alfie Brown converses (and occasionally screams) about modern culture and its many contradictions – the hypocritical standards of censorship in popular music, the irresponsibility of producing bad art and the unscrupulous homogenisation of comedy, all whilst making audiences laugh. As a keen observer of a world where greed comes before truth and how the heavyweights of the culture industries keep us addicted for profit Alfie is a comedian like you’ve never seen before. His sell-out Edinburgh Fringe 2012 show was both critically acclaimed and critically-berated making Alfie Brown the most incisive and divisive comic of our generation.
