TED HILL’S DEBUT SOLO HOUR: “ALL THE PRESIDENTS MAN"
High-energy multimedia comic and enthusiastic American history geek, Ted Hill, takes a whistle-stop tour of every single US president and how his anxiety-ridden, ADHD mind chose a niche hyperfocus on American History to distract himself enough to recover from mental breakdown.
“A PSYCH WARD OBSESSION WITH AMERICAN HISTORY SAVED MY LIFE
”With silly graphs, absurd slides, an attempt to set a world record by mentioning every US president in at least one joke, ‘All The Presidents Man’ is an emotional, high-energy whirlwind of multimedia mischief.
The show was born in 2018, after several unsuccessful suicide attempts, during a two week stay in St Charles Hospital for Psychological Wellbeing in London. Here, Ted, at the lowest point in his life, picked up a book about U.S. history and began writing jokes.
For a brief moment he felt happy and free, and during that moment he pledged to himself that if he was going to recover, he was going to do so by writing a stand-up show about every single president. Even the boring ones. His obsession with this self-appointed task drove him to break the chains of depression that had landed him in the psych ward and forge ahead into his exceptionally promising career in stand-up comedy.
Ted, 28, from Aylesbury, will be appearing in “All The Presidents Man” at 6.40pm daily from the 4th-28th August (except 15th) at Just The Tonic at the Mash House, The Attic Room (venue 288), at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2022.
