Local comedy fans are in for a treat this summer as a taste of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival comes to Theatr Clwyd, known for its top-tier comedy nights.

This July, patrons have two opportunities to see burgeoning stars on their journey to the internationally-renowned festival.

On Monday, 17 July, Theatr Clwyd hosts a stellar double bill featuring Brennan Reece and Harry Stachini, both notable fixtures in the comedy circuit.

Reece, a multi-award-winning ‘working-class wordsmith’, has been seen on popular shows such as Live At The Apollo (BBC), Celeb Coach Trip (E4), and Roast Battle (Comedy Central).

His charming and cheeky personality has also been witnessed in The Stand Up Sketch Show (ITV), and Survival Of The Fittest (ITV), earning him over 6 million YouTube hits for his stint on Top Gear (BBC).

Joining Reece is Harry Stachini, who has been hailed as an exciting young comedian. His engaging storytelling and warm stage presence endear him to audiences, his relatable views drawing them into well-constructed scenarios that often leave them in stitches.

Later in the month, the stage will be graced by Ignacio Lopez and Louise Young.

Lopez, a Spanish-Welsh comedian based in Cardiff, has hosted TV shows, headlined top comedy clubs all over the UK and Europe, and even performed for the Wales football squad.

His diverse family background offers a unique spin on his comedic storytelling, akin to “a meeting of the U.N.”

Newcastle native Louise Young, one of the brightest new names in comedy, will also take the stage.

Known for her work with Glee Clubs, Komedia, and The Stand, Young has supported big names like Jason Manford and Alan Carr on their nationwide tours.

In 2020, she was nominated for Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year and followed it up the next year with a nomination for Best Festival Appearance at the Leicester Comedy Festival.

To secure a spot at these promising comedy previews, visit Theatr Clwyd’s website or call directly.

This is a prime opportunity to experience a bit of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival right at home in North Wales.
