“one of our most compelling young comics… a first show that was worth waiting for.”
Brian Logan, The Guardian ★★★★
“She is confident, laid-back, casual – and very funny.”

Steve Bennett, Chortle
“inexhaustibly funny mind”
One of the most exciting new acts on the comedy circuit, rising star Chloe Petts (Hypothetical, Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club and The Stand-Up Sketch Show) presents her debut show at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe with Transience at Pleasance, Upstairs from 3rd – 28th August at 6.00pm, fresh off the back from supporting Ed Gamble on his Electric 2022 UK tour. A brilliantly sharp live performer, in this debut hour Petts uses her trademark cerebral “laddishness” to examine her desperate attempts at living in the moment, the darts and her (strictly non-romantic) love for men who watch it.
