The big fat running show

By Andrea Edwards & Nicola Burgess

A comedy show for runners, wannabe runners,
non-runners and anyone who’s ever
done a brisk walk.

I like the sound of it – how do I book the show at my event?


We are able to bring The Big Fat Running Show to a huge variety of venues, big or small. As a company we are experienced in rural touring; So, if you can provide a venue e.g. village hall, theatre, marquee, pub, shop, your living room, covered space, open air space (weather dependent) we can bring you the show!  

What we do

  • Provide the comedy show
  • Provide the PA Equipment
  • Provide the Lighting
  • Provide Posters and Flyers

What you do

  • Provide a venue
  • Put up posters and give out flyers
  • Sell lots of tickets! 
  • Provide a bar and food & drink, if you like.  

The Money?

We agree on a practical minimum fee and a split of the ticket sales – creating an opportunity to raise money for your club, hall or venue and for us. Any money made from raffles, bar or food is all yours.

Are we any good?

We know that most promotors and organisers want to see and act live before considering a booking.  Here’s a video clip that was filmed when we performed at Andy & Adams café in Corris, Mid Wales. 



Ok...that looks good, but we still want a solid recommendation

Here’s what promotors, event organisers and audience members have said about the show so far this year...

Machynlleth Comedy Festival, 2017.

“We saw several shows over the Machynlleth Comedy festival weekend and the bar had been set. Went along the the Big Fat Running Show to support local talent. We were blown away by the hilarious script and the professionalism. The whole room (packed) laughed from start to finish. Highly recommended.”
– Paul Cross, audience member.

Salomon Trail Marathon Wales – Coed Y Brenin, Snowdonia.

“We booked Nicky and Andrea for the Salomon Trail Marathon Wales Welcome Party in June. 50 nervous runners, waiting to be entertained and to have something to take their mind off the race the next day, no pressure then! 
The Big Fat Running Show is like no other sporting comedy show I have to say – multiple costume changes, spoofs, gags and songs galore. The dynamic duo shift effortlessly from Park Run to runners with the runs and somehow manage to amalgamate religion, chafing and women’s issues for one zany hour of belly laughs. Highly recommend.”

– Matt Ward, Race Director, Salomon Trail Marathon Wales.

Andy & Adam's café, Corris 2017

“Thanks you for a great evening last night!  The pasta was delicious!! Nicola Burgess and Andrea Edwards THE BIG FAT RUNNING SHOW was hilarious! Fabulous fun.”
– Annie Craggs, audience member  

“Had a hilarious evening watching this at Andy & Adam’s. A rib-ticklingly funny and informative show. I have no idea how you managed to pull it off in such a small (though delightful) space, but you did!
Inge Thornton, audience member
