Aaaaaaaaaaaand My Favourite Album is, the Best of the Fringe

A compilation show of several of the comedy circuit’s best up and coming acts, hosted by award-winning Sachin Kumarendran; Comedy Writer for the Labour Party 2017 General Election Campaign, and star of BBC One's This is My House, Sachin was a Finalist in the national competitions Manford's New Act and Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year, and was shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Award. He is a regular at the UK’s top comedy clubs and the Edinburgh Fringe, as well as other national comedy festivals, with sell-out shows at Leicester, Birmingham and Nottingham Comedy festivals. His solo show, The Slightly Dark Knight Criticises was awarded Runner up in the Late Stage Comedy Best Show Award at Nottingham comedy Festival 2022.

In this compilation show, you can see a selection of the strongest acts from the Edinburgh Fringe - distinguished performers whom Sachin watched with concern, realising that the comedy circuit is a lot more competitive and awash with talent than he’d hoped, before he realised that he too could profit from their talent by having them perform on a shared bill, which he would host and take credit for. The featured performers will bring their best material, eager to attract you to attend their solo shows ahead of the thousands of competing shows. With four acts performing every night, there’s something for every Fringe-goer.

Sachin’s credentials are below, with other acts being similarly decorated:

Winner University of Birmingham’s Got Talent

Finalist Manfords New Act of the Year

Finalist Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year
