Edinburgh debut for the cult satirical American comic and singer-songwriter.

“Absolutely brilliant” ***** Uncut

"Genius is a rare commodity -
but here it is in a one-man folk-punk band."
**** New York Post

“Like a machete-wielding man wearing a clown's nose, Hamell takes a few well-chosen targets behind the woodshed for a hefty dose of derision.” Rolling Stone

“Genuinely funny guy with a loud mouth. The trial is over, the verdict is in: Ed Hamell is the real deal.” Billboard

"For those unfamiliar, Hamell is Bill Hicks, Hunter S. Thompson and Joe Strummer all rolled into one sweaty, snarling, pugnacious pitbull of a man. Someone who, more impressively, achieves the hitherto impossible feat of making one guy with an acoustic guitar seem like the last word in total rock ’n’ roll. Oh, and he’s scabrously, filthily, twistedly funny." Philadelphia Weekly
