CRAIG DEELEY

CRAIG DEELEY is a stand up comedian, actor, improviser and tweeter extraordinaire! Not only does he leave live audiences delighted but he also has the knack of crafting the perfect twitter gag - often gaining thousands of likes and retweets.

EDFRINGE EXTRAS: BONUS 11. JOHNNY WHITE REALLY REALLY

8/21/2019
More
JOHNNY WHITE REALLY- REALLY is difficult to describe, even in his own words. A knot of low self-esteem, self doubt and worry collided with an at times beautifully creative introspection and dreamlike honesty. The laughs at times are in the nuances and sit in the places that laughter should not sit, but it just makes it all the more fascinating. All of this combines for a unique performance and as Chortle put it ‘Quite possibly the most underrated act at this years Edinburgh Fringe’. I am...
