Overview

Britain on film logo

Stephen Mangan and Chris O’Dowd star in this Edinburgh ensemble piece, perhaps best encapsulated as ‘Nashville on the Fringe’.

Three ambitious comedians and the star of a one-woman show arrive in Edinburgh hoping to leave their mark on the world’s most famous comedy festival. Annie Griffin’s multi-person narrative follows each of them as their emerging insecurities and delusions rise to the fore... Marshalling an enormous cast, Griffin (best known for her Channel 4 series The Book Group) impressively captures the mind-boggling multifariousness of Edinburgh Festival in this deliciously dark and ingeniously structured comedy.
