Make Me Look Fit On The Poster: Comedian Amy Gledhill Brings Her New Edinburgh Festival Fringe Show To The Old Market In Hove

National Comedy Award and triple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Amy Gledhill returns to this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe with a brand new show – Make Me Look Fit On The Poster.

Make Me Look Fit On The Poster is about self-confidence, romance and bin bags. Amy is known for her unique mix of intelligent everyday observations, confessional anecdotes and off-beat tangents.

A three time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, Amy is the only act ever to be nominated twice in one year; both for Best Newcomer (solo show) and Best Show, as one half of the critically acclaimed sketch duo The Delightful Sausage

Amy's authentic, comic voice is heard when she co-hosts the comedy podcast Northern News - which is set to embark on its first ever live tour later this year. 

Amy Gledhill said: 

"I'm thrilled to be heading back to the Fringe. The last time I went feels like a wild fever dream... but in a good way? 

"Now I feel like a better comic and a better writer but (somehow) with worse and more embarrassing stories so I have high hopes for the show. 

"I've always had such a great time on stage in Edinburgh and can't wait to do it again.

"Straight after I'll be jetting off on tour. I had such a blast the first time around. It blows my mind that a room full of people have shown up to see me, specifically. (Where were they on my 14th birthday?!) 

"And I feel super grateful that the people who attend have been wall to wall legends. What. A. Treat."

Amy Gledhill brings her new show – Make Me Look Fit On The Poster - to The Old Market, Hove, on 11th October 2024. For tickets CLICK HERE.
