“We premiered this at last year’s Camden Fringe, refined it for Brighton Fringe, then refined the shit out of it for Edinburgh.”
WHO: Jon Levene & Nathan Lang, Performers/producers
WHAT: “Fresh from a sell-out Brighton Fringe run, a mischievous new sketch comedy show from best friends who can’t stand each other – Jon Levene and Nathan Lang. Action-packed sketch, crackling satire, outrageous impressions and hardcore physical comedy – including the hottest (and possibly only) Jehovah’s Witness act in town. It’s time to learn how Jon and Nath Like to Party!”
WHERE: Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters (Venue 272)
WHEN: 13:30 (55 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is our first Ed Fringe together as Jon & Nath, although we have been up before individually. So for the purposes of this question, yes… and no. We can’t wait for the full festival experience, which includes Jon slapping Nath really hard onstage approximately 50 times. We’ll be sharing a tiny room with our Techie DJ Henry, and possibly a single bed (the description was confusing). It’s been a long road – literally – as we’ve planned this since meeting at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Tell us about your show.
We are the writers, performers, producers (mainly Nath as Jon can’t spell) and special effects designers (which is obvious when you see our robot sketch). After relocating from Australia to the UK we spent a lot of time producing video sketches for our YouTube channel before writing our first live show in years.
We premiered this at last year’s Camden Fringe, refined it for Brighton Fringe, then refined the shit out of it for Edinburgh. After Edinburgh we’ll book more UK festivals before translating it into French to hit the continent and all French-speaking countries in Africa.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
We recommend you come back for Nath’s solo show The Stuntman (16-27 Aug, 1.30pm @ The Free Sisters) – it’s a surreal physical comedy show about a complete idiot (Nath used Jon for inspiration) told through clowning, characters, physical comedy and real onstage stunts.
