Description

In 1998, Sam Nicoresti was abducted by aliens. Now he's ready to reveal the beans and spill the truth in his debut show about space, alienation and dimensional string theory. Given the state of the world (ie very good), it’s natural for humanity to be content with knowing in space there is no one to hear our screams. But are we truly alone? A smuggled tape, mysterious light and charred manuscript on interdimensional filing cabinets reveal the truth. Free buffet. No government agents. Half of Sam & Tom (Sketch Off! Finalists 2018). 'Dangerously deranged' ***** (MumbleComedy.net).

One of the best shows I've seen this year. Brummy comedian, dressed as an astronaut. I laughed so hard my face still hurts. If you want to catch a rising star in a small venue, go and see Nicoresti now, while you still can- you won't regret it.

Weird in a good way. Sam tells us all about space. He's very good at commanding an audience and it's the perfect for the Spiegelyurt venue. I think this show will get better and better as it's polished.

Sam Nicoresti is a great storyteller, but he takes it to another level here by weaving in a fun little metanarrative about being a keynote speaker at a ufo convention he's accidentally organized at the same time as the Edinburgh fringe. It's very funny, but there's lots of other fun things going on with this show too. He's very charming.

One of the very best things about the Fringe experience is stumbling across someone dressed as an astronaut down in the SpiegelYurt near midnight, and it turning out to be a thoroughly enjoyable act, rather than just some really annoying dude, wandering about. True, Sam Nicoresti does seem fairly adamant...

The Skinny (3/5 stars) 89 days ago

Space travelling ping-pong balls, water bottle astronaut suits and smuggled voice recordings of a drug dealer’s holiday plans; you are unlikely to forget Sam Nicoresti's debut solo show UFO in a hurry.  We first meet Nicoresti as he moon hops on to the main stage of a UFO convention. This...
