Daniel Cainer: Gefilte Fish & Chips

Fresh from multiple sell out shows at Edinburgh Fringe 2017 and winner of the 2017 Galway Fringe Award for Excellence, join Daniel Cainer for his much anticipated Live At Zedel debut.

Smart, funny, timely and only slightly irreverent, Cainer's deeply moving tales about his family and observational comedy are a joy.

Brilliant rhyming and wordplay, great musicianship and haunting tunes you won't forget. His songs and his music are for anyone who has ever wrestled with their home, their heritage and their heart and is partial to bagels.

Expect tall tales of family and folklore, of growing up, of growing old, of love, of loss and of celebration. You'll be laughing and crying in a heartbeat as this superb songwriter and charming entertainer brings the characters in his family tree to life.

Winner of Three Weeks Edinburgh Award 2013
