A master of timing and physical comedy, he made me laugh so hard it hurt” – BBC“Energetic, engaging… thought-provoking and funny” – The Stage“Absorbing, intelligent and funny” ★★★★ – Metro“Birdman’s Fringe show is a triumph. He isn’t afraid to push the limits of what society deems appropriate. He has created an hour of thought-provoking, hilarious stand-up" ★★★★★ – Edinburgh Reporter“Delightfully comic. Controversial, personal and wickedly punchy.” ★★★★ The List“Engagingly mixes the silly and the downright wrong.” – ChortleTBAWhoever it is, they'll be funny. You have our word.COLIN OWENS [COMPERE]Our compere and your host for Stand in The Basement, Colin Owens, is an award-winning stand-up comedian, who has worked with Jimmy Carr, the teams behind The Inbetweeners and Mighty Boosh.
