About Sunil Patel: Titan

Either a winner or a finalist in most of the new act competitions to date, Sunil Patel brings his second hour of nihilistic gags to the Edinburgh Fringe this August.

Highly overlooked last year, Sunil is back in full force, Titan-like, as he looks at how, in an increasingly depressing world, he is actually doing OK. In a life not too dissimilar to Jay-Z’s, he can afford to mess about a bit: he has no kids, no responsibilities, he’s moved into a tax bracket and he’s taken up badminton. Still, there’s always room for self-improvement. Oh, and a chance that robots might take over the world.

A naturally unperturbed person, Sunil can find laughs in the bleakest of topics. His calm, considered stand-up and his deviously sharp writing has seen him reach and/or win the finals of numerous competitions. He stars in Channel 5’s mockumentary series, Borderline, about ropey airport border control officers (the second series is due to TX this summer) as well as an online advert for nasal spray. This alone has caused him to become overbearingly arrogant. Couple that with his podcast with Harriet Kemsley, Why Is Harriet Crying?, and he already has the persona of a mega-star in the making.

As Sunil himself puts it: ‘“It seems worthwhile being blind in this sun”. That’s a quote from Our Man in Havana. I think it’s about avoiding everything when it’s all a bit too much. Also I think people bang on a lot about how the world should be and how people should behave while they ignore their own glaring flaws and have literally nothing to offer. “Waste no more time asking what a good man should be. Be one.” That one is Marcus Aurelius from the film Gladiator. Does that help?’

Venue: Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, The Attic, 38 West Nicholson Street, EH8 9DD
