Christian Reilly and PBH’s Free Fringe present…
Christian Reilly: Rock’n’LOL
In a world where all the musical heroes are dying and Coldplay refuse to, a man with a dual mission (music and comedy) has the answer. To Rock. And LOL.
“WTF? Why isn’t he a ginormous star?” – KATE COPSTICK, THE SCOTSMAN
For the last four years, multi award-winning musical comedian Christian Reilly has been enjoying acclaimed, full-house runs at the Edinburgh Festival. This year, he returns with a new hour of songs, stories and observations, channelled through the voices of various rock stars – many of whom will probably be dead by the time you read this.
“Seriously cool, seriously funny” RICHARD HERRING
This year, Christian gives you:
- Shane McGowan on halāl meat
- Sleaford Mods on hosting the perfect dinner party
- NWA on the ephemeral nature of erotic love versus the enduring nature of fraternal love
- Elton John on paddling pools
- A love song for Noam Chomsky to sing
***BONUS MATERIAL – GLOBAL MEDIA EXCLUSIVE***
This show will also feature the catchiest song ever written*.

About Christian Reilly:
WINNER: Stand Up For Labour Act Of The Year
WINNER: Mervyn Stutter’s Spirit Of The Fringe
Christian started playing in bands at the age of 15, but his first comedy gig was in the Perrier award-winning ‘Rich Hall is Otis Lee Crenshaw’. He has used his accomplished musicianship, extensive vocal range and love of music to establish himself as a global comedy circuit headliner; appearing at international festivals, on BBC radio and TV, and on the Chortle award-winning ‘Richard Herring: As It Occurs To Me’. Last summer, BBC Radio 4 followed Christian on the road to the Edinburgh Fringe for ‘Lives In a Landscape’. 2016 saw Christian taking his comedy to Australia as part of Perth’s Fringeworld festival and will see him appearing in a new season of ‘Richard Herring: As It Occurs To Me’ in autumn.
