Gremlin Head

Gremlin Head is a stand up comedy show about intrusive thoughts, OCD, and the unbearable guilt associated with them. Whether it is observing a cake, being asked how your Christmas was or having sexual intercourse, intrusive thoughts can ruin both the most innocent and indecent of moments. This show will explore the ramifications of having a foul-mouthed little gremlin living in your mind, constantly telling you to say bizarre and inappropriate things, and making you feel like a walking piece of s***.

The show is the life's work of London-born comedian Andy Casper. He is based in Barcelona and is the creator and host of many shows including: Imprfcto Comedy, Uranus Comedy, The Sadness Cabaret, and What Would You Do If That Was You? His style is observational with a touch of the alternative. His inspirations include but are not limited to: The Flight of the Conchords, Guns n Roses, Chris Rock, Phil Ellis, Ross Noble, Vernon Chatman, and Albert Camus. Andy is an experienced act having taken part in 4 Edinburgh Fringe festivals. Last year, Andy took a split-hour show entitled ''Brexico'' to the Fringe alongside Mexican comedian Hector Ayala. In 2022, He won an award for ''Most Dedicated to Nonsense'' at the annual ''Comedy Clubhouse Clubbies''.

Andy Casper is a delight in his debut hour, which has consistently wowed audiences throughout the Fringe. Through hilariously weird bits, Andy depicts what it's like to deal with intrusive thoughts and OCD in a way that's both relatable and unexpected. He does what comedians do best—by playing with the audience's expectations, he's able to say the scary thoughts we've had out loud and make us all feel a little less alone. Andy is easily one of the best rising talents who can't be missed. Click Here For Review
