From the quote attributed to Mark Twain, humour is defined as Tragedy Plus Time. Ed returns with his hit show, having sold out here on 15 September 2023, to test Twain’s 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).  

As seen as hosting Live At The Apollo and regular appearances on QI and Mock The Week (BBC).
