'A poignant and wonderful Fringe debut from an archetypal outsider' The List


Another highly acclaimed, successful  Edinburgh Fringe show comes to The Swan - . We'll let Brennan introduce himself...




I'm the English Comedian of the Year and 'EVERGLOW' is my debut show.

In Australia and at The Edinburgh Fringe it sold out – I know that sounds like bragging, but I don't know another way to explain that people liked it.

I've also appeared on BBC, ITV, E4 and supported Joe Lycett on tour. 

Still bragging. I just really like doing comedy and if you come and see me, I reckon you'll like it too."
