New tours for Sophie Duker and Jazz Emu

Comics hit the road post-Fringe

Sophie Duker and Jazz Emu have both announced new tours today.

Duker’s But Daddy I Love Her tour –  including a two week run at London’s Soho Theatre – will follow the launch of the show at the Edinburgh Fringe.

The show sees the Taskmaster champion championing delusion, arguing that we should all ‘choose hot wet fantasies over cold, bleak reality’.

According to the blurb ‘the aspiring hot girl takes swings at capitalism and romance, laments her Catholic mother’s holy water habit and shares the crushing failure of her attempt to score a sugar daddy’.

At Edinburgh, Duker will be running a ‘Sugar Daddy’ scheme, with reduced price tickets for Black, Asian and other global majority fans, as well as unemployed or low-income festival-goers.

Meanwhile, Jazz Emu has announced 12 dates for his new show Knight Fever for early 2025.

Currently playing at the Soho Theatre before its Edinburgh run in August, the show features a fill live band, The Cosmique Perfectión.

The premise is that they are paying the headline slot at The Royal Variety Show, with the frontman hoping to use the performance  to secure a long-coveted knighthood. 

Archie Henderson, the man behind Jazz, came up with  his character as a side project when he used to work at a small record label, Abubilla Music, helping to write songs for their artists.

His alter-ego has now amassed more than 70million views and 430,000 followers on YouTube – with similar success on other platforms.
