Looking for

  • *** LOOKING FOR A TECHNICIAN FOR EDINBURGH FRINGE FULL RUN ***
  • My stand-up show "Best Dad Ever" is hitting the fringe this summer! You may have caught it in it's very early preview at the ADC over a year ago, but now is your chance to be involved in the full month Fringe run.
  • Show blurb:
  • Dave Joke of the Fringe Winner, Cambridge mathematics dropout and professional poker player Ken Cheng returns this year with his second stand-up hour. Born to Chinese immigrants in the UK, Ken never had the most normal upbringing. Best Dad Ever is a tale of his unique childhood, exploring his obsession with toy lambs and his complicated relationship with his parents. Ken is the writer and star of his own BBC Radio 4 series. 'Smart, impressive and brilliantly funny tour-de-comedy' (Chortle.co.uk). 'A fiercely accomplished talent' (Scotsman).
  • -
  • I'm looking for someone to op the show and it's a pretty straightforward job - nothing fancy just the usual requirements for a stand-up gig: lights up at the start, lights down at the end, forced laughter throughout.
  • Dates are August 1st-26th (not 15th), 3:30pm at Bedlam Theatre.
  • If you are interested please e-mail me at kenkecheng@gmail.com

Contact: kenkecheng@gmail.com
Deadline for applications: Friday 15th June
