Milo Edwards Pindos (United Kingdom)

Crowded and Enter Closer present

Milo Edwards Pindos (UK)

Winner ScotsGay Comedy Award 2019 Edinburgh Fringe

What's it like to have 15 minutes of fame in the largest country on Earth? 

Pindos is the debut stand-up hour from former Cambridge Footlight, Milo Edwards, about how he became the first British stand-up comic to become a Russian TV star, got arrested in deepest Russia and discovered what happens when a country is run by a shirtless man on a horse. It comes fresh from an award-winning five-star run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019.

Pindos – (Russian for ‘The American’) - is an honest, extraordinary and hilarious hour of stand-up examining the fleeting nature of celebrity, traversing cultures and languages, global politics and sending dogs into space in the name of Communism.

Previous praise for Pindos:

‘We need comedians like Milo Edwards. ★★★★★' ScotsGay Magazine

'An intelligent, thought provoking hour. ★★★★'  Broadway Baby (UK)

‘Keeps you hooked throughout… a sharp wit. ★★★★'  Beyond the Joke (UK) 


Suitable for audiences 16+
