WHAT: “As seen on the BBC and Channel 4. Anglo-Iranian, English Comedian of the Year finalist 2017, Darius Davies returns with ‘one of the funniest, most thought-provoking stand-up shows this Fringe’ ***** (FringeFeed.com.au).

A show so explosive the powers that be don’t want you to see it. ‘Brilliant, hilarious, outstanding’ ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). ‘A knockout sensation!’ **** (BroadwayWorld.com). ‘Full of verve… style and energy’ (Chortle.co.uk).”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
No this will be my seventh Edinburgh Festival and my first show with Just The Tonic. I am excited, raring to go, and yet still a bit nervous!
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’18?
The biggest thing to have happened since last fringe was that I have moved back from New York to London. I loved New York but surprisingly in terms of comedy and career development I feel personally for me the UK was the right place to be. That being said my time in New York has certainly added another dimension to my comedy.
Tell us about your show.
This year’s show is called Persian Of Interest, which I wrote and directed, although I am also working with Carey Marx who’s just giving me some outside input and a fresh pair of eyes. I have previewed this show up and down the country and cannot wait to debut it at Edinburgh. After Edinburgh, I would like to tour it in the UK, and I am currently discussing getting it recorded for a streaming service so fingers crossed!
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
For a great late night show audience should check out Hate N Live 10.30pm Just The Tonic Big Cave. Four comedians “hate on” topics suggested by the audience over a variety of fast-paced rounds. This is high-energy, rock n roll comedy show!
I am also looking forward to seeing Leo Kearse: Transgressive, Ollie Horn: Pig in Japan and Mat Ewins (?) I think that’s his name I gigged with him once and he was really funny so I want to check his show out too!
