Edfringe Preview Nights at The Anglers: Ross Smith & Joe Sutherland





Event Type


We have two weekends of specially handpicked Edinburgh previews with some of the brightest breakthrough & established acts on the circuit to tickle your funny bones. Hosted in the beautifully, refurbished air-conditioned Reel room upstairs at the Anglers.

Boys don’t cry – but should they? Ross Smith can’t remember the last time he did & is unsure if he still can. In Crying/Shame, Smith asks why it’s good to cry, for emotional well-being & comedy awards.
And why he is nowhere near reaching either. Hopefully it will all end in tears. Crying/Shame is the eagerly anticipated sophomore hour from emerging talent Ross Smith.
‘One of my favourite new acts’ – Joel Dommett.’Hilarious & original – unlike this quote’ – Nish Kumar. ‘Laugh-out-loud gags cleverly set up – go & see Ross Smith’ Bruce Dessau,BeyondTheJoke.co.uk).
