Winner of last year's Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, Daniel Simonsen makes an odd, awkward start in his debut solo show, performing the first five minutes from behind the curtain. But it's this offbeat, deadpan awkwardness that makes this young Norwegian comic stand out. 'Champions' is predominantly made up of observational material – tales of social faux pas, flat-sharing and shit jobs – but Simonsen is refreshingly low-key, with a pokerfaced, nonchalant delivery and 'alienated outsider' perspective, giving each story a quirky angle. Simonsen is a talent to keep an eye on.
