With time being precious during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe we challenged this year’s acts to deliver a 50-word elevator pitch for their show. This time it’s the turn of… Daniel Audritt: Better Man.
|Your pitch:||Better Man is a punchline-heavy stand-up show about modern masculinity, love and relationships.
I will explore what it means to be a better man in 2019 – looking at everything from toxic masculinity, to the aggressive language on my moisturiser as I try my hardest to be better.
|What other show shouldn’t we miss?||Stand Up with Janine Harouni (Please Remain Seated) Janine is a seriously good stand up and was part of the cast of Modern Horror Stories, my Comedy Central show.
Northern Power Blouse – Touching Cloth – A silly, over the top sketch show. Also my writing partner is in it, and she’s the funniest person I know.
Emmy Blotnick: Party Nights – Great stand up from the US. I heard this album a few weeks back and it was great, I’m really looking forward to seeing it live.
Anna Drezen: Okay Get Home Safe!! – another US comic and writer. She used to write loads of the Reductress’s best articles, now she writes a lot of SNL’s best sketches. I’m looking forward to that one.
|Name of your show:||Daniel Audritt: Better Man|
