Here are two COMEDY shows for you to see in Edinburgh!

1. Healing +

This show is a mix of stand-up, theatre, storytelling, and improv. Come help comedian Mike Lemme move out of his apartment. We don't want to give too much away, but you'll definitely enjoy the show if you ever had to deal with roommates and gatekeepers. No heavy lifting required.

  • Perfect if you like storytelling comedians like Mike Birbiglia, Hasan Minhaj, and Neal Brennan (you can check them out on Netflix! Hopefully, I’ll be there soon!)

  • Can’t decide between seeing stand-up or theatre? This show is a mix of both! It’s stand-up, storytelling, improv, and theatre all in one show. Something for everybody, as long as they’re 18+. Adult humor mixed with heartfelt storytelling.

  • Relatable themes: trying to achieve goals, balancing work and personal life, annoying flatmates (roommates in the US!), performance anxiety, being 30 and not owning anything besides a bed, being 30 and proud you at least own a bed

2. Bathroom of a Bar on Bleecker:

Emil Ferzola stars in this new tragedy/dark comedy about the final episode of America's #1 comedy podcast. Written and directed by Mike Lemme.

  • Perfect if you like absurd independent theatre/satire, dark comedies, Christopher Nolan movies, love or hate podcasts, enjoy walking into something you think is one thing and being happily surprised it’s completely different

  • I wrote the show with Denzel Washington in mind, but Emil Ferzola got the part instead 😉. 

  • Relatable themes: conspiracy theories, false prophets, mental health, the dangers of podcasting and social media, the emotional and physical stress that comes from needing to find a toilet immediately

Broadway World

“It is wonderful when a show can be funny, contemplative, and raw all at the same time, and Lemme has captured all of the above perfectly.”

"Lemme turns his personal experiences — the struggle of dating in your 20’s, New York City apartment living and mental illness — into warm, lighthearted comedy. The show weaves multiple stories into a cohesive narrative, addressing difficult and occasionally dark topics with sincerity and hope."

"When a comedian can not only make you laugh but touch you deeply with his honesty and pain, you know you're watching someone very special. Highest recommendation to Mike Lemme."

"Mike Lemme finds wry humor in his dysfunctional family and his struggles in New York City, soliciting much laughter from the audience and proving himself to be a comedian of significant talent."
