Socially Awkward Penguin

Have you ever found yourself in an awkward social situation? Ever wished there was a guide to help you navigate your way through life's trickier interactions? Do you want a penguin? Then join Emmy Fyles (Comedy Central, BBC Three) in a multimedia extravaganza as she endeavours to solve these problems for you (apart from the one about wanting a penguin, obviously. You’re on your own there).

‘Superb comic timing, clever, original writing – one to watch!' **** (FunnyWomen.com).

One of the Guardian's Best Shows of the Fringe 2018.

EMMY FYLES is “like a female Mr Bean”, wearing her onesie and holding nothing back as her show surrounds one central theme – social awkwardness.

What’s interesting about Emmy is that she is not a stereotypical stand-up comedian, she herself is socially awkward! Hence why for her being a comedian is fantastic because the conversation is “one-way”.

Emmy covers a vast range of topics from the lap dancing bars of Edinburgh, international leaders, her mother, weddings, Hollywood, social media, blind dates and many, many more.

She does this through a combination of her own witty humour and using a screen to display images and videos, the majority which she has self-produced.

Much of what she discusses is very relatable for young people, especially those who may not be the most confident in the world and who are prone to having socially awkward moments.

She comes across as a very down to Earth human being and warmed audience members with her humour.

Despite life’s difficulties, she chooses to be her best self and is bringing great joy to her guests at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Click Here For Review
