Two top comedians give you a sneak peek of their 2020 Fringe shows:

Elliot Steel

Following impressive performances and wowing audiences at the Latitude, V and Reading festivals and being nominated for Best Debut at the Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival 2015, Elliot Steel is a must-see comic name to watch out for.

Elliot’s hilarious and honest routines are gritty real-life tales of growing up on a South London council estate – all delivered in his refreshingly individual style with a confidence and stage presence beyond his years.
