Adam Hess: My Grandad Has A Fringe

As seen on Tonight at the Palladium (ITV), Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and Live from the BBC, Adam Hess is one of the UK’s hottest comedy talents.

Prepare to laugh for an hour and not think once as Hess brings to you his award-winning show (Theatre Weekly’s Best Edinburgh Fringe Comedy Show) and see the comedian who critics regularly describe as having ‘more laughs per minute than any other act’ (Skinny). One of his jokes is about the face you pull when the person opposite you on the train accidentally touches your leg. Great stuff.

 ‘Adam Hess is one of those comedians you feel like could just walk on stage completely unprepared and absolutely kill for the whole hour’

Theatre Weekly

'For high quality gags per minute there is no better comedian on the Fringe'

Independent

'A breathless race through some of the Fringe's strongest punchlines’

Skinny

‘Relentlessly entertaining, full of beautiful imagery’

Time Out

‘One of the most out and out hilarious shows on the Fringe’

Chortle

‘I’ve seen few shows that are funnier’
