With an incredibly endearing stage presence, Essex-boy Edd Hedges has a natural affinity with an audience and since winning So You Think You’re Funny in 2013 his career has skyrocketed. Being a runner-up in subsequent finals of Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year and Piccadilly Comedy Club New Comedian of the Year, Edd went on to feature in Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, Just The Tonic’s Big Value Show (Edinburgh 2014) and the Machynlleth Comedy Festival which also marked his radio debut on Radio 4 Extra’s Comedy Club with Arthur Smith. Edd also recently guest starred in an episdoe of Joe Sutherland and Stephen Bailey’s On The Rocks podcast.
At only 23, Edd appears to be older and wiser than his years and has all the hallmarks of a very promising career.
