The Noise Next Door’s Comedy Lock In: Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh, 2015
Return of The Craic Online Comedy Club: Online: 2021
Edinburgh Comedy All Stars: Edinburgh Fringe 2023, Underbelly George Square, Edinburgh, 2023
Canadian comedian John Hastings was a guest at The Noise Next Door’s Comedy Lock-In for the Edinburgh Fringe that I saw in 2015. He delivered a twitchy, nervy yet confident and reassured set about his growing up in another country which was both delightful and endearing to the late-night crowd.
Hastings appeared at Return of The Craic Online Comedy Club that I saw in January 2021. Recovering from a terrible motor-cycle accident with his arm in a sling, Hastings still managed to be funny describing the incident in detail.
In 2023, the comedian was a guest for the Edinburgh Comedy All Stars showcase that I watched at the Edinburgh Fringe 2023. The anarchic comedian told weird off the wall stories as he darted around the stage entertaining the Friday night crowd.
