ANDREW MAXWELL: BARE MAXIMUM (Edinburgh Fringe Preview)
The double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and one of the UK Comedy Circuit’s favourite storytellers is coming back home to Ireland to do what he does best – finding the funny in everything going on in this crazy world today and, let’s be fair, being damned good at it. Often referred to in his score of first-rate reviews as one of the most skilful comics of his generation, Maxwell has long been at the top of his game.
His expertise in finding the perfect balance between humour and insight in any given situation, his lightning quick wit and his fierce intellect have ensured that he remains the King of Comedy long after he was crowned. His TV credentials over the last 20 plus years since winning Channel 4’s King of Comedy has seen Maxwell engage in a battle of wits on Mock The Week to a battle with cockroaches in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here. He’s appeared on Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, QI, Richard Osman’s House of Games, Pointless Celebrities and Live at the Apollo and is the recognisable voice behind MTV’s hit show Ex On The Beach.
He has even won Celebrity Mastermind which, for anyone who has been in a room with him for more than 5 minutes, will come as no surprise. Along with fellow comedian Glenn Wool, he has recently released a weekly podcast EEJITS of the World and played to over 100,000 people last year as support for Jim Jefferies. He’s sold-out endless runs at Edinburgh, performed at The Amnesty / Channel Four’s Secret Policeman’s Ball (alongside Eddie Izzard, Chevy Chase and Dylan Moran), Glastonbury, Galway Comedy Festival, The HBO US Comedy Arts Festival in Las Vegas (alongside Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock) and has appeared several times at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival. He is a founder member of ALTITUDE, the fantastic comedy festival staged in the Austrian Alps, and has released three comedy specials.
