Kieran Hodgson: French Exchange (Mon 5 & Thu 8 Aug)
‘The Tales of Kieran Hodgson: Part One’
In 2003 a US-led coalition went to war with Iraq and Kieran Hodgson spent 10 days living with a very nice French family. Triple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Kieran Hodgson returns to the Fringe with his smash-hit show from 2014, a sweet and hilarious coming-of-age tale about the unforgettable school trip where he truly learnt the meaning of ‘croissants’, which is ‘crescents’. It’s the French one.
★★★★ ‘Elegant and impressive… really funny.’ - Fest

 Kieran Hodgson: Lance (Tue 6 & Fri 9 Aug)
‘The Tales of Kieran Hodgson: Part Two’
In 2003 Lance Armstrong won his 5th Tour de France title, and a young boy in West Yorkshire believed in him. Now a character comedian, he (the boy) returns to the Fringe with this heartfelt and hilarious 2015 story of growing up, betrayal by professional athletes, and redemption. It’s the cycling one.
★★★★★ ‘He’s a delight to watch, and every line of his script is wired for laughter.’ - Guardian

Kieran Hodgson: Maestro (Wed 7 & Sat 10 Aug)
‘The Tales of Kieran Hodgson: Part Three’
In 2003 Kieran Hodgson heard the music of Gustav Mahler and decided to write a symphony. Sixteen years later he returned to the Fringe 2016 with this character comedy epic about falling in love and attempting something far beyond your abilities. Plus a violin. It’s the classical music one.
★★★★★ ‘Wonderfully – indeed, symphonically – funny.’ - Telegraph

Kieran Hodgson: ’75 (Mon 29 Jul – Sat 3 Aug)
‘The Tales of Kieran Hodgson: Part Four’
Passion. Betrayal. Harold Wilson. Character comedian Kieran Hodgson returns with the epic and surprising tale of how Britain joined Europe in the first place. On a deeply personal quest for understanding, Kieran perfects a series of obsolete impressions and discovers that the 70s were about more than just Tiswas, the colour brown and words ‘let’s go on strike again’.
★★★★ ‘Ravishingly entertaining, informative, full of insight and plenty of laughs.’ - Times
