CANCELLED Edinburgh Previews: Naz Osmanoglu & Matt Winning

From the management agency that brought you acts such as Frank Skinner, Russell Howard and Al Murray, Avalon Promotions presents a run of Edinburgh Previews from some of the hottest talent heading to the Edinburgh Fringe this year. Each night will feature two acts trying out some brand new ideas before taking their shows up to the festival in August.

WitTank are well-known Edinburgh Fringe veterans with 10 shows under their belt.

Matt Winning

Winner of the Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year 2011, Matt Winning is one of the most exciting, unique and imaginative new stand-up and character comedians in the UK.

The Scottish comic’s eccentric and idiosyncratic act is a whirlwind of ideas, combining an original approach to one-liners, acute observations and shouting loudly. Matt was a finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards 2012. He was also finalist in the Chortle Student Comedy Awards in 2010 as himself and again in 2011 as the character Steph E Graph. 2017 saw Matt received huge critical success with a completely sold out run of his 3rd Edinburgh hour, the “funny yet educational” show Filibuster. Matt is a co-creator of the Bearpit Podcast Podcast which is a “Cultish” ( The Independent) character-improv show. In 2016, he became one of the first comedians to appear on the new subscription video-on-demand site Next Up Comedy.
