James Barr: Straight Jokes
3 - 29 August
Underbelly Bristo Square
People keep telling James he's "too gay". Straight Jokes is his fabulous reply.
An out-of-control hour of jokes from the utterly hilarious, nearly national treasure. James exposes his employers and navigates the utterly exhausting admin of pretending to be woke for "fame". The gay half of hit comedy podcast A Gay and A NonGay, which has had over 5 million listens, and co-host of The Hits Radio Breakfast Show. The award-winning ginger returns to Edinburgh after his five-star 2019 debut, Thirst Trap.

Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer for children and adults under 40 and increased funding for research is desperately needed.
