Yurt Salon - Comedy Edinburgh Fringe Preview

On Wednesday 5th July, comedy comes back to the Precinct with a special Edinburgh Fringe preview with Abandoman with support from Stefano Paolini, Sam Deards, Jo Romero and MC Sion James.

Doors will open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

The Comedians

Abandoman's Rob Broderick – The Musical in My Mind (Edfringe Preview/Extended Set/Work In Progress )Rob Broderick is a man with a dream – to write the world's biggest hip hop musical. Join him for a beautiful combination of hip hop, comedy and animation, in a show that's two parts Drake, one part Disney. With poetic flourish, Rob dances between playing the part of introspective rapper, pop culture commentator and all-out musical surrealist. ‘Flight of the Conchords meets 8 Mile’ (Chortle.co.uk).
