Old Hill comic hoping for rip-roaring fringe success
11:32am Tuesday 24th July 2012 in News
FUNNY man Rob Jackson, from Old Hill , is part of a trio hoping for a roaring success at this year’s world famous Edinburgh Fringe.
He is one third of the Black Country Cider Lions who will be performing their stand-up routines as part of the festival’s Laughing Horse Free Fringe next month.
Joining Rob on stage will be Leon Clifford, from Tipton, and Rob Kemp, from Darlaston, in an hour-long show at Bar 50 in the city’s famous Blackfriars Street, from August 3 to 26, with the comedians working on a rotating basis so never the same show twice in a row.
Rob describes their routine as being “crammed with lots of insightful observations on the minutiae of being an ethical, sexual, whimsical, responsible thirty-something - and wordplay. There will definitely be wordplay.”
He added: "Edinburgh is going to be amazing. It’s a hot-bed of innovation and invention, bringing together so many exciting performers.”
