In a coup for Grassington Festival we have managed to catch Ed on his way up to preview his new show at Edinburgh Festival. Testing out new material our Festival audience will be the first to get a sneaky peek of what will go on to become his nationwide tour.
In a history of being a test audience for the likes of Lee Evans and Michael Mcintyre, we think you will be in for a brilliant night.

“ranting & raving comic genius” – The Guardian.
David Hadingham keeps audiences hooked right up to the last punchline as he presents his unique and often warped view of everyday life. This gravel-voiced comic combines supremely controlled delivery with inimitable facial contortions as he cracks some of the best handmade gags in the business.
David Hadingham (no middle name and only one ‘d’ in the surname) started in comedy in May ’93 after writing some material for a friend, only to discover that said friend had given up comedy after a spot at Up The Creek on a Sunday night. The said friend (who from now on in shall be known simply as friend) suggested that David perform his own “….damn material..”.
Ex-postman Chris Washington is taking the comedy scene by storm. Nominated for best newcomer in the 2017 lastminute.com Edinburgh Comedy Awards, Washington has also filmed his own special for Live From the BBC, and is a regular guest on Radio 5Live and Absolute Radio.
