In 2015, Craig marked 16 consecutive years of solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe—with an unprecedented history of selling out his entire season every year. He has also been honoured to act as an ambassador representing all Edinburgh’s festivals (including the Fringe and the International) for gala events in New York and Toronto. He performed at the London Palladium stage in 2008 to a rapturous reception and the same year hosted star-studded, variety show, Forbidden Vaudeville, especially produced for Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber’s prestigious Sydmonton Festival.
Already much-loved as one of the stars of the Sydney International Comedy Festival, Craig’s 2012 smash-hit debut at the Adelaide Fringe and subsequent sold-out season at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival as well as Sydney and Perth International Comedy Festivals saw him returning to repeat these successes in again and again. Other international work includes Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival where he hosted the prestigious Britcom series as well as Bubbling With Laughter and his storming gala performance, recorded alongside an all-alumni line-up, saw him featured on UK TV’s The Best Of Just For Laughs. He has also performed in Toronto, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin, New York, Singapore, Amsterdam, Brussels, Ghent and Athens. He guested on Australian TV’s most popular panel shows Good News Week, Spicks & Specks and has hosted Sydney Comedy Festival’s national television showcase Cracker Night for several years.
Each year, his new Edinburgh Fringe show goes on to successfully tour throughout the UK and internationally, his live tours consistently rank amongst Scotland’s fastest-selling live comedy events, he regularly hosts the Hogmanay street party event in Inverness and is in great demand for corporate events. Craig is firmly and deservedly established as one of the country’s best-loved entertainers.
Flat-out hilarious… I’ve not heard a room laugh so long and hard… There isn’t anyone better at working a crowd… the audience was in absolute paroxysms of laughter… He has a wide appeal and it is genuinely funny.✶✶✶✶✶ Mirror
Hill had everyone in hysterics from go to whoa… This is one highland fling you’ll never forget!✶✶✶✶½ Adelaide Advertiser
Riotously funny… his energy is boundless… He is that rare thing, a naturally funny comedian whose skewed expressions are enough to keep us happy. But he is also a terrific singer… tiny vocal masterpieces alone worth the ticket price.
Class. Risqué, rib-tickling and absolutely screaming from the rafters… Hill actually has to wait until the audience stop laughing before he can start again. It’s absolutely hilarious…His across-the-board appeal to both the young and old is that his humour is—largely—family friendly. Obviously this is why people are wiping tears of laughter from their eyes.
– Evening News, Edinburgh
High-octane… Irresistible… An hour with Hill makes for a cracking show!
– The List
Craig Hill live is a revelation…. The patron saint of camp comedy… His spur-of-the-minute stuff, when he shoots straight from his kilted hip, is priceless… Hill is more of a Loony Toons cartoon character than a flesh and blood comedian… Akin to watching Jim Carrey dance the Highland Fling.
– The Scotsman
It’s hard not to love Craig Hill… the man is funny, and not just a little bit… Riotous!
✶✶✶✶ Herald Sun, Melbourne
An evening of no holds barred fun and wicked japes… Craig is hilariously naughty, an immensely talented mimic and a whirlwind of camp cheekiness who, by the end of the show, had the most reluctant and unrhythmic of his supporters out of their seats clapping and dancing. An absolute delight.
– Liverpool Echo
Camper than a big camp of campers pitching up their pink sparkly tents, but funny as hell.
– Scotland on Sunday
One of the most uplifting and hilarious things I’ve seen at this year’s Fringe… Talented, evanescent and exciting… See this show while you can!
– Three Weeks
He’s a warm and wonderful traditional showbiz star and a master of audience interaction. He blew the roof off the full theatre… wonderfully smooth improvisation interspersed with fast gags.
A show you wish would last forever… If you had to go to the same show every night of the festival, then this would be the one.
