Desiree's Coming Early! @ Edinburgh Fringe Festival

  • The Hive 15-17 Niddry Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH1 United Kingdom (map)

Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Heroes @ The Hive

Featuring Desiree Burch
She was born late, bloomed late and always missed the bus. But a compelling shift has the fresh-faced/world-weary comedian (Netflix’s Flinch, The Mash Report, Live at the Apollo) mischievously changing up the tempo. Also seen on Have I Got News For You, QI, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order and 8 Out of 10 Cats.

Desiree’s Coming Early!

Have you ever been caught in a loop?

OMG, seriously this is getting boring. Like, how many times do we have to fix this trash only to have to fix it again? When is stuff just, like, ever going to change? Does every revision require, like, a friggin revolution or something? Or does pushing too hard just wind up sending you right back to the beginning? And what if everything really is just the same thing forever? 


Have you ever been caught in a loop?


Comedian and storyteller Desiree Burch (Netflix, Live at the Apollo, Radio 4) was born late, bloomed late, and generally has difficulty with the present moment. At a moment in recent history where decades of societal progress swung right back around to authoritarianism and disintegration, Desiree embarks on a spiritual journey of mythically ridiculous proportions into the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, to figure out how she, and all of us, have gotten here, and maybe, possibly, hopefully fix the suckiness for us all.

OMG, seriously.
