Daniel Kitson is to take his first new stand-up show to the Edinburgh Fringe in three years.
He has told subscribers to his mailing list that he is working on a new show called Where Once Was Wonder – which he said was likely to be about ‘change and impossibility and defiance and inevitability all topped off with lashings of arrogance and self doubt’.
His last stand-up show was We Are Gathered Here in 2009 – the same year he launched his storytelling show The Interminable Suicide Of Gregory Church. In 2010 he debuted the similarly theatrical It's Always Right Now, Until It's Later, which he has just taken to New York.
He added that working on the new stand-up show was ‘a really exciting feeling, to find that bit of my head heaving itself back into action’.
He will be doing a series of work on progress shows at The Hob in South London over the next month, before taking it to Australia and Edinburgh. See his profile page on Chortle to buy tickets for the previews, which went on sale at noon today.
Kitson recently rubbed up critics in New York the wrong way by complaining about their note-taking during his show.
