Mark Forward - Mark Forward Wins All The Awards

at Gilded Balloon Dining Room

2nd - 27th August 2017 at 8.15pm (no show 14th Aug)

Mark returns to the Edinburgh Festival with a new show filled with everything that will help him win all the awards. Death, bees, death, puppets, death and cows in heaven, (who are dead). The show is odd and fun, but also had those serious moments that are only in the show to help a performer win all the awards. You wouldn’t want to miss it.

"Forward has an infectious dynamic energy" – ★★★★ The List

 

"Stand up of this quality ought to be a hot ticket" – Chortle

MARK FORWARD

"inspired and absurd. Forward has a Kaufman-esque streak, oscillating between both silliness and more pointed material, but he doesn’t get as antagonistic as Kaufman could. Imagine if Zach Galifianakis’s stand-up was less focused on surreal one-liners and more on ridiculous scenarios and characters... Forward pulls off being weird without ever feeling like he’s trying too hard to be weird, which is hard to do." – The Ten Best Comedians at the Just For Laughs Festival, Paste

MARK FORWARD

"Deserves every award he wins.. Bombastic? Unhinged? Unstructured? F-ing insane? Any and all of these would be totally appropriate to describe Mark Forward's show, as long as they were accompanied with so funny you come out feeling physically assaulted" – ★★★★★ Voice Mag

MARK FORWARD

"Mark appears to have as much fun performing this show as the audience do watching it and feeds off their energy, he uses every square of the Dining Room as he parades around the perimeter monologuing and commenting on how the night's entertainment is going, leaving the audience on edge wondering where he’s going to pop up next. Mark might not win all the awards this year but he definitely deserves at least one” – ★★★★★ Black Diamond FM

MARK FORWARD

"a surrealist comedian who constructs bizarre narratives in service of precisely engineered laughs. A fantastic reinterpretation of a classic children's rhyme serves as the perfect way to conclude this glorious hour, before Forward outdoes himself by throwing his all into a barnstorming ending that finally unites the whole room” – ★★★★ The List

MARK FORWARD

"Brilliant hour of pugnacious surreal lunacy. It seems almost miraculous that something different and original can be achieved within the confines of stand-up comedy. It’s just possible that Mark Forward will make you a true believer after a sensational hour of paradoxically beautifully-constructed randomness.” – ★★★★★ The Wee Review

MARK FORWARD - The Voice Pick of the Fringe

"Bombastic? Unhinged? Unstructured? F-ing insane? Any and all of these would be totally appropriate to describe Mark Forward's show, as long as they were accompanied with 'so funny you come out feeling physically assaulted'. He joked about not having a long of time to write the show, and it's hard to know whether or not he was serious. Whether it was meticulously planned lunacy, or truly off-the-cuff unplanned hilarity, Mark Forward exhibited phenomenal skill in the art of comedy, and you absolutely have to see him.." – The Voice
