A comedy sketch writer from Hemel is excited to be taking his group’s debut show to the Edinbury Fringe in August.

Sketch group This Glorious Monster comprises performers Daniel Hoffmann-Gill, Adam Loxley and Martin Collins, with scripts by Martin and Hemel man Alex Finch.

Born and bred in Hemel, Alex, aged 40, attended Hemel Hempstead School.

This Glorious Monster are not the average Edinburgh Fringe debut act. After posting their own comedy sketches online, they were quickly signed to United Agents.

They have a core fanbase on the London comedy circuit and have received interest from the BBC, as well as being piloted for a Radio 4 sitcom.

Their film Coming Out Clown won Sketch of the Year at both the Cofilmic Comedy Awards and Sketchfest.

The group first started working together about four years ago.

Alex said:“It started through music.

“We were in bands together and then I think we got a bit old and podgy for music and we decided comedy might be a better route for overweight, balding people.”

This Glorious Monster are taking their show, Wrong ’Uns, to The Pleasance theatre at the Edinburgh Fringe.

From a depraved driving instructor to the world’s most sadistic HR ladies, Wrong ’Uns is a universe inhabited by the gloriously monstrous characters that surround us every day. See This Glorious Monster in action at http://bit.ly/1OjZf
