Have you ever thought: who am I? Is it all just a dream? Is time constant or variable? Is it only possible to imagine the infinite? No, me neither.
Anyway, we live in uncertain times and Ed’s house is built on shifting sand. So it calls for some navel-gazing. It’ll probably be fine – it might even work… there’ll definitely be jokes. And more stars than you can shake a stick at (ideally).
Edward Aczel began performing stand up in 2005 at the age of 38. By the end of 2005, he was the runner-up in both prestigious BBC New Comedy Awards and in Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol (which was filmed for the extras on Jimmy Carr’s 2005 live DVD).
Ed is now a regular headliner on the comedy circuit, and has performed six solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival. 2007’s show was hailed by Jimmy Carr on BBC2’s Culture Show as “the funniest thing on the Fringe.”
In 2008 Ed won the Malcolm Hardee Award and received many five and four star reviews. More recently he has had a fantastic Edinburgh Fringe 2015, with an extremely well received solo show ‘The Random Flapping of a Butterfly’s Wings’ whilst also acting in award winning ‘Waiting For Gaddot’.
Ed has toured the UK widely including performing at the Soho Theatre annually since 2010. He has also contributed to several radio shows including BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, 28 Acts In 28 Minutes, Pick Of The Week and Happy Mondays. Ed’s television work includes recent pilot, “Grass Roots” (London Live), “Call the Midwife” (BBC), Drunk Histories” (Dave) and “Common Ground” for Sky.
