As well as MC, Ed has also provided national tour support for Greg Davies, Russell Kane and Chris Addison.

Ed is a Edinburgh favourite having performed several shows. His debut solo show in 2014 titled Gambletron 5000 was described as “plain funny in the best possible way” (Beyond the Joke) and went on to play at London’s Soho Theatre. In 2015 Lawman played to sold-out audiences and has been described as “pure comedy gold” by Time Out. Ed returned to the Fringe in 2016 with his new show Stampede, which is currently touring around the UK.
