Philipp Kostelecky: Daddy's Home
International comedian and favourite child* Philipp Kostelecky is fresh from a sold-out European tour and is bringing his show to Bristol. With a unique brand of comedy that combines whimsical observations and a high-energy performance style, Philipp creates imaginative stand-up that absorbs the audience into his performances examining the mundane and dark aspects of culture and the human condition.
Philipp is an Austrian, American, and Slovenian comedian who’s one of the most exciting young comedians to emerge from the UK and European comedy scenes. Philipp has headlined shows across Europe and won the Brutal King Gong competition at the Comedy Store, and Best New Comedian at the 2021 Southend Comedy Festival. Philipp was a finalist at the Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year 2022 and was selected for the prestigious AAA Comedy Showcase for the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Philipp's writing has been featured on the BBC and he's supported Russell Kane on tour. Daddy's Home is a hilarious hour of stand-up comedy about living away from home, wearing a lizard skin, and pursuing your dreams. There's also a great joke about pancakes at the start.
