by Jane Austen in an adaptation by Simon Reade
Comedy (in the room) and foreign policy (in the world) are both about tension levels, so it seems obvious to Ed to combine them into one glorious soup. The show is a proper chance for an anti-comedian to run through the major foreign policy conundrums of our age, in a strictly linear and geographical way whilst also gunning for a light, big laugh comedy atmosphere.
When will China get a Blue Water Navy? And who cares? Can Russia ever get a warm water port and why Ukraine? What about North Korea then? And what can I really do for Britain if it can't do anything for me? Foreign Policy addresses these pressing questions whilst keeping everyone giggling.
Edward Aczel began performing stand up in 2005 at the age of 38. By the end of 2005, he was the runner-up in both prestigious BBC New Comedy Awards and in Jimmy Carr's Comedy Idol.
Ed is now a regular headliner on the comedy circuit, and has performed six solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival. 2007's show was hailed by Jimmy Carr on BBC2's Culture Show as "the funniest thing on the Fringe." And in 2008 Ed won the Malcolm Hardee Award.
