An Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee has lined up three dates in the county.

In turns heart-wrenching and hilarious, Utterly at Odds With the Universe takes Tom on an emotional journey from childhood to adulthood, exploring the poignant and profound relationship with his granddad.

The two frequently taped themselves interviewing each other and it is in these early conversations that Tom comes to fully understand the influence this man has had on his own life and explores the fantasy of being able to make ‘one final interview’.
