Comedians Charlie George & Victoria Olsi – both winners LGTBQ+ Comedian of the Year 2019 & 2022 respectively, announced they are taking the show Clandestina Queer Comedy Triple Bill to Edinburgh Fringe 2022.

Clandestina is a queer women, trans and non-binary led comedy show – which has been featured by The Guardian and Non-Chalant Magazine. It was founded by comedian Victoria Olsi and Jess Pellizari (Queer Culture Club). It’s aim is to elevate the voices of marginalised groups within comedy and properly support queer creatives. It has been running in London since July 2021, going from strength to strength, consistently pulling in sell-out audiences and securing top-quality acts each month. Notable performers include Sarah Keyworth, Olga Koch, Shelf, Jen Ives, Chloe Petts, Heidi Regan, etc.

This special Clandestina Edinburgh show will feature comedians Charlie George & Victoria Olsi. Joining them will be a special “Wildcard” act every night also doing a set. This act will range from other up-and-coming stand-up comedians hot from the circuit, to burlesque, drag or musical/variety acts with comedy at their heart. Resulting in an unforgettable triple bill evening of queer comedy.
