Description

Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show nominee Elf Lyons floats to the Fringe with her new horrifying comedy show inspired by Stephen King. Part mad clown comedy spectacle, part Hammer horror. Elf becomes your own personal Pennywise as she merges horror techniques with old school storytelling to make you laugh and shiver in equal measure. Don't be a Misery, get a glass of red rum, bring your pal Tony and laugh with Elf forever and ever. 'Silly, touching and catastrophic' **** (Sunday Times). 'Lyons has genuine funnybones' (Chortle.co.uk). As seen on ITV2, Dave and BBC Three.

The roars and hysterics from the audience affirm it: this swirling anthology of spooks and stand up comedy is the epitome of everything that the Edinburgh Fringe is its very best.

Starburst Magazine (4/5 stars) 38 days ago

This is a bold, ambitious show that clearly has required a lot of skill, time and effort to put together. If you like horror and you like strange but funny shows, then you should seek this out.
