Conor Drum to Return to Edinburgh Fringe with ALL MY FRIENDS ARE DEAD

In the last year Conor has lost a girlfriend, two stone in weight and sadly had to say goodbye to his best friend. Now he's on his own...

Following a very successful run at last year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Conor Drum returns to The Fringe with a new full-hour version of his show All My Friends Are Dead, having had to turn away people every night for last year's 40 minute version.

A regular on the UK and Ireland circuit, Irish comic and actor Conor Drum has appeared on both the RTÉ and the BBC's New Comedy Awards and has performed all over the world, from Barcelona to Los Angeles. In 2014 he went to New York as the star of Irish comedy Scratch, which was named one of the Top 12 Short Films of the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. Conor has been performing at the Edinburgh Fringe regularly since 2012.

All My Friends Are Dead is a show from an excellent stand-up, whose easy-going charm means he immediately brings the audience into his world and then takes them along for the ride.

It's all about being the only remaining singleton in a world full of weddings, mortgages, children, security and a lack thereof, and it came to life following the marriage of Conor's last single friend from home.

For Conor, having a disciplined diet is a very real concern, weddings are more of a source of anxiety than a celebration, making new friends is a lot harder than it used to be, and new music sucks. The milestones of life, like finding the one, buying a home, settling down and having kids seem further away than ever. There are benefits; disposable income ('cause what's the point in saving?) stag parties, city breaks and baby storms (a kind of stag night for expectant dads) have become the norm. And with the confidence that age brings coupled with dating apps, sex is easier to have but then of course real intimacy is harder to find.

Will Conor get it together? Who knows? But he knows needs to stay sure of one thing. He'll be fine. Everything will be okay.
