Comedy 42 at a The Spirit Works is back with award winning comedy and incredible cocktails. This month is our Edinburgh Fringe Festival special with two fantastic comedians previewing their full length shows before taking them up to the Edinburgh Fringe in August. Joining us are Gràinne Maguire and Edd Hedges plus your host, GQ's 100 best jokes in the world, Chris Purchase
Gráinne Maguire is an award winning stand up comedian and comedy writer.
She has appeared on Dave's UnSpun with Matt Forde, Comedy Central's Alternative Comedy Experience, RTE’s Cutting Edge and can be heard on Radio 4's The Now Show, More Money Than Sense, An Idiot’s Guide, Breaking The News and Radio 2's What If?
She has performed at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Galway Comedy Festival, The Aarhus Comedy Festival and The Kilkenny Cats Laugh.
She was nominated for Best Show at the 2016 Leicester Comedy Festival and Best Show by Broadway World at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
With an incredibly endearing stage presence, Essex-boy, Edd Hedges, has a natural affinity with an audience and since winning So You Think You’re Funny in 2013 his career has skyrocketed. Being a runner-up in subsequent finals of Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year and Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of the Year, Edd went on to feature in Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, Just The Tonic’s Big Value Show (Edinburgh 2014) and the Machynlleth Comedy Festival which also marked his radio debut on Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club with Arthur Smith.
Taking the UK circuit by storm, Edd can also be seen performing his unique style of ridiculous anecdotes in various comedy clubs such as The 99 Club, Jongleurs, Komedia and the family-friendly show, Comedy Club 4 Kids. At only 22, Edd appears to be older and wiser than his years and has all the hallmarks of a very promising career.
