Will Duggan: Class Two
Pleasance Courtyard (Bunker Three)
31st July – 26th August (not 12th)
Stand-up comedian Will Duggan (Funz and Gamez) returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with his third, and best, solo show.
Middle class midlander Will Duggan, has been sure since birth that he was destined to become an icon and he’s absolutely livid that hasn’t happened. During an odd and turbulent time in very recent history, he found himself questioning every poor decision he has ever made (which turned out to be pretty much everything he has ever said or done). He decided to talk things through with his four oldest friends and try to figure out where it all went wrong. The problem is that Will hasn’t spoken to these friends for 25 years. And also they are entirely fictional.
Best known to fringe audiences for titting about in a dog costume in 2014’s Fosters Panel Prize winner Funz and Gamez and follow-up Funz and Gamez Tooz, Will has also appeared on The Russel Howard Hour, Sam Delaney’s News Thing, BBC Radio 4’s Fresh from the Fringe and BBC Three’s Comedy Feeds. His debut hour of stand up A Man Gathering Fish garnered an array of glowing reviews and saw him featured in Dave’s Top Ten Funniest Jokes of the Fringe 2016 as well as top jokes lists in the Telegraph, i and Wow247.
Will had previously performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe as part The Lunchtime Special and the Big Value Comedy Show and has provided tour support for Hal Cruttenden, Gary Delaney and Justin Moorhouse. Will has been nominated for the Best MC award at the Nottingham Comedy Festival as well as reaching the final of the Frog and Bucket World Series, Birmingham Comedian of the Year, Preston Comedian of the Year and Hull Comedian of the Year.
