Simon Feilder: All things I’m Not
If his stand-up manages to live up to his YouTube channel (KidCapricorn), Simon Feilder will make for a very entertaining show. He juggles witty observational humour—low key and subdued—with the occasional offensive hammer, while sticking to his feel good roots. He’d previously been doing the Camden Fringe as a duo with Simon Sy Thomas, but this will be his first solo.

Four Femmes on the Thames
Life, love, sex: popular territories traversed by comedians since the dawn of the microphone. But the Four Femmes on the Thames, clad in vintage, silk dresses, offer their spin on time’s oldest conundrums in the form of song. They’ve been called ”faultless, well-polished, and funny with perfect harmonies”. Their melodious rifts of jazz, swing and contemporary music accompany their visceral view of the world.

Combining stand-up, improv, storytelling, and a good deal of magic, Danny Buckler is making a name for himself in the UK comedy circuit. His audience participation skills and keen impersonations have made him a favourite for cruise lines and theatres all over Europe. He’s a zany performer, and Mr Buckler can stir a crowd quick.

Probably the only Malawi-born comic coming to the Fringe, Daliso Chaponda has travelled the world (after being deported from Canada) offering funny insights on what divides different cultures. For instance, his home country is so conservative women only wear long skirts, but in Amsterdam they have porno movie theatres. Poking fun at his own displacement anxieties, he’s perfect for London’s international scene.

A comedian, illustrator and artist, Iszi Lawrence brings something of an artful air to her stand-up. With spiked white hair, black-framed glasses, and often sporting a suit and tie, she has tremendous punk ‘watchability’ and stage presence. This multi-talented performer is a living rebuttal to the “women aren’t funny” brigade, and she’s more than comfortable in her anecdotal, aside style of humour.
