With an incredibly endearing stage presence, Essex-boy, Edd Hedges, has a natural affinity with an audience and since winning So You Think You’re Funny in 2013 his career has skyrocketed. Being a runner-up in subsequent finals of Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year and Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of the Year, Edd went on to feature in Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, Just The Tonic’s Big Value Show (Edinburgh 2014) and the Machynlleth Comedy Festival which also marked his radio debut on Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club with Arthur Smith.
Taking the UK circuit by storm, Edd can also be seen performing his unique style of ridiculous anecdotes in various comedy clubs such as The 99 Club, Jongleurs, Komedia and the family-friendly show, Comedy Club 4 Kids.
At only 22, Edd appears to be older and wiser than his years and has all the hallmarks of a very promising career.
