CRAIG CAMPBELL THRILLING MIC HUNT EXTENDED INTO AUTUMN 2014

crop

Following a sold out Edin-ormous Edinburgh Fringe run and over 50 tour dates Craig Campbell’s Thrilling Mic Hunt extends into Autumn 2014 to a further 15 venues. Our merry moose returns with more gut-pullingly, rib-tickling stories of life as a perpetually fun seeking middle aged man-child. Tickets are on general sale now so it’s time to grab an adventurous date, launch your laughter canoe and ride Campbell’s comedy creek while it’s in full flood!

A formidable stand up and one of the most charismatic and inventive performers around CRAIG has supported FRANKIE BOYLE on two sell-out national tours and has performed on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC One), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three), was responsible for easing the contractions of an expectant mother who laughed so hard at his performance on Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave) – which detailed an encounter with a badger – that her waters broke and most recently was a hit on ALAN DAVIES’ As Yet Untitled (Dave). In 2013, CRAIG recorded a digital-only release of his Channel 4 DVD Craig Campbell Live at the prestigious London Bloomsbury Theatre.

In October 2015 CRAIG is set to perform as part of the world’s highest comedy gig Stand Up on Everest at Mount Everest Base Camp at 5365m above sea level. STEWART FRANCIS, GLENN WOOL, TERRY ALDERTON, SIMON EVANS and a Special Guest will be joined by up to fifty eager fans on a gruelling nine day trek high into the Nepal Himalaya in aid of the charity Save the Children.

CRAIG was the host of Canada’s legendary Ed’s Night Party, and headline guest on numerous Canadian TV shows including Jim Carrey Live, The Dennis Miller Show and Just for Laughs. He is a firm fringe favourite having made his Edinburgh debut alongside TONY LAW and DAN ANTOPOLSKI as part of comedy trio The Dinks which achieved great critical and box office success, leading to an invitation to perform in the Best Of Edinburgh programme in New York. He has supported RICH HALL on his international tour and has had two successful solo shows in Edinburgh. In 2012, and after a 15 year break, CRAIG and his fellow Canadian comedians STEWART FRANCIS and GLENN WOOL took the Edinburgh Fringe by storm with the reprisal of their critically acclaimed show, Return of the Lumberjacks.
