Fast becoming semi-regular MC is the delightful Troy Hawke. Homeschooled by an overly nostalgic mother, Troy confronts the 21st century as if waking from a 1930′s time capsule with insightful and hilarious consequences. Alongside TV appearances on Blue Go Mad in Ibiza (ITV2), Live at the Electric (BBC Three) and Benidorm (ITV1), Milo McCabe (Troy’s creator) is an established character comedian with several successful Edinburgh runs under his belt, twice nominated for Best Show at The Amused Moose Laughter awards and listed as one of GQ magazine’s Top 10 shows of the Fringe.
