Tuesday 2 August Event Type: Comedy Show Title: Edinburgh Preview: Eric Lampaert and Pat Cahill

Show Information: Doors 7pm Show 7:30pm/ Price £8/ 16+

Eric Lampaer is a Franco-British nomad with an American green card and knows no borders; both with his neurotic oft taboo approach to comedy and literally, by sporadically gigging all over the World in various languages. He belongs nowhere. He is an alien. Maybe it’s time for him to leave this planet.

D.O.T.T is the slick new floorshow from neo music hall twit Pat Cahill. Watch him get it seriously right and hold on firmly to his sugar lumps, whilst taking you on a trip to the better times! **** Timeout
