COMEDIAN LUKE CHILTON DEBUTS ‘NETFLIX & CHILTON’ AT EDINBURGH FRINGE

Netflix & Chilton is the debut Ed Fringe show from South London-based comedian Luke Chilton. Venue: Just The Tonic at Cabaret Voltaire (Liberty Room) from 1st August – 25th August at 8.00pm (exc 12th)

A rising star on the UK comedy scene with accolades including BBC New Comedy Award finalist, NATYS Finalist (2022), and shortlisted for British Comedian of the Year 2022 and 2023, Luke has swiftly become a favourite with both audiences and his peers. His off-beat and chaotically loveable stand-up debut is set to be an unmissable show at this year’s Fringe. 

Expect topics including sexual exploration, coming-of-age shenanigans, and hilarious dissections of a complete medically approved psychotic breakdown as he shares his regret at taking the (now banned) malaria drug Larium, battles with intrusive thoughts and tries to figure out denial. Luke Chilton summarises the wild anecdotes guaranteed to get you and your pals talking. 

Luke says, “My show is about gay sex and going mad, which is weird because I’m not gay, and I hate talking about mental health. Psychosis is rarely discussed through a comedic lens, and I want to change that because I know from personal experience that so much of it can be objectively hilarious”.  

Luke Chilton has provided tour support for Vittorio Angelone and Bobby Mair and is a fixture at London’s top comedy venues like Up the Creek, Kings Head, Angel Comedy, and Vauxhall Comedy Club; he is the resident MC every Wednesday at Big Belly Comedy Club, London. Luke is also the co-host of the podcast Habibi & Ivory with fellow comedian Omar Badawy, an epic crusade of Middle East meets West chin waggery, pondering cultural differences & whatever has been tickling their brains. 

Luke comments on making his Ed Fringe debut: “My baseline emotion is always confusion, but aside from that, I feel very creatively turned on to be performing at Fringe”. 

**Disclaimer: Watching this show will not make your partner want to sleep with you; however, it may make you want to sleep with Luke Chilton. 

Netflix & Chilton is the debut Ed Fringe show from the unique, endearing, and unhinged South London-based comedian Luke Chilton. Venue: Just The Tonic at Cabaret Voltaire (Liberty Room) 36-38 Blair Street, Edinburgh EH1 1QR 1st August – 25th August at 8.00pm (exc 12th)
