Thor and Freya: Norse As F***

Ya ya ding dong. Two of the UK’s most exciting new comedians present an hour of standup. Freya Mallard (BBC Radio 4) is a Leicester Square New Comedian finalist. She has been described by Josie Long as, “a wonderful and exciting new voice: silly, warm and super smart!”. Thor Stenhaug (British Comedian of the Year shortlist) finished sold out runs of his past two Edinburgh shows. ‘Heart-warming and hilariously self-aware stand up****’ (EdFringe Review). ‘The crowd loved him. The gem of the Free Fringe’ (North West End).

Last little joke about why they should come.

News and Reviews for this Show

SUDDENLY, I feel very old. Not only because I’m about to qualify to do stand-up at “Ageing Folks Telling Jokes: The Best Comics over 40” (Ageing? Forty!) but because I’ve glimpsed the future – and that future is the young and talented Thor Stenhaug and Freya Mallard.

Buried beneath The City Café in the Old Town, Thor and Freya are packing two dozen people into a karaoke booth for an hour of jokes each night during the Free Fringe. Their talent more than fills the room, and these two rising stars deserve a much bigger audience for their gags.

Forget any suggestions of gimmicky cashing-in on the popularity of Thor in the Marvel comic book films or Netflix’s Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, with its weird transportation of the Hydro from Glasgae to Embra. Instead, this is good, solid, off-fashioned stand-up, delivered by a pair of young comedians on their way up.
