Blizzard Comedy presents Previews by Hannah Platt and Josh Jones

Please note this is an 18+ Event

Fringe season is well underway and we are pumped to have another pair of incredible performers heading to our stage to showcase their all new work-in-progress shows.

Join us at Gullivers on Monday 3rd June for some of the most exciting new shows the fringe is likely to see this year, featuring…

Hannah Platt
“Voice of a generation” (The Skinny) Hannah Platt is an honest, frank and distinctive new comic with an unflinching outlook on the world and, after a diagnosis of body dysmorphia, how the world looks back at her.

Often acerbic and never shying away from sensitive topics, Hannah asks why we keep people at arm’s length, what’s so humiliating about being sincere, and are you really a people pleaser if no one is pleased?

Nominated Best debut show, Leicester Comedy Festival
BBC New Comedy Awards Finalist
As seen on BBC Three and BBC Radio 4
Tour support for Fern Brady, Lou Sanders and Kiri Pritchard-McLean

and Josh Jones
After his hilarious debut TV appearances on E4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats and ITV’s Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club, Josh has gone on to host BBC Three’s Fast Food Face-Off and make guest appearances on Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, ITV2’s Iain Stirling’s CelebAbility, E4’s Reality News, Sky Max’s Dating No Filter, Dave’s Late Night Mash, and Comedy Central’s Undeniable, Guessable, Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains and Comedy Central Live. Josh recently made his debut appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show.

Josh co-hosts the Dave original podcast series Hard Sell with Darren Harriott. He also hosts his own historical gossip podcast Dead Drama, and the Chatting with Cherubs podcast with Morgan Rees.

In 2022 Josh was nominated for Best Newcomer at Dave’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards for his critically acclaimed sell-out show Waste of Space. He was previously a finalist for the prestigious BBC New Comedy Award, which he subsequently went on to judge on BBC Three. Josh was also nominated for Outstanding On-Screen Talent Featured in a Production at the 2022 Royal Television Society Northern Ireland Awards for hosting Fast Food Face-Off for BBC Three.

“Josh is purely about entertaining and making his audience laugh for an hour” – One4Review

“His material is hilarious, as is the delivery, and his stage presence is so upbeat and bright that you can’t help but hang on his every word” – Entertainment Now

“Full of confidence, Josh has a presence on stage that’s rare to find in a comedian so early on in their career and has the audience hanging on his every word, and crucially, laughing very loudly along with what he has to say” – I Talk Telly

As always, our tickets are free to book at point of sale, although we will be taking donations by both cash and card on the door, which will be entirely split between performers.
