Heavyweight sketch maestro and award winning stand-up NAZ OSMANOGLU brings his first solo sketch and character show The Naz Show to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe at Just the Tonic @ The Caves from 3rd to the 25th August.
Already a Fringe veteran with ten festivals under his belt as the loudest third of acclaimed comedy trio WITTANK, NAZ charges back to the Burgh to divert his unrivalled Anglo-Turkish energy into characters grotesque, sketches inspired and laughs aplenty.
A regular face on our screens, NAZ’s TV appearances include critically acclaimed Inside No 9 (BBC 2) and Live at the Electric (BBC Three) both solo and with WitTank. NAZ has also starred in and co-written Flat TV (BBC 2) with co-creator TOM ROSENTHAL. He was a core cast member of Horrible Histories (CBBC), Drunk History (Comedy Central), Plebs (ITV2) and Bull (UKTV Gold).
NAZ’s stand up accolades include being the winner of the Amused Moose Laugh-off Competition, Chortle Award Best Newcomer Nominee (2010), and Runner-up in So You Think You’re Funny.
