The Delightful Sausage: Regeneration Game
Surreal comedy from Yorkshire’s finest, meat-themed double act. Join Chris and Amy in a gag-packed mission to crown their town the City of Culture. Find out what culture is, who’s been secreting it and why that stain won’t wash. A multimedia adventure for fans of economic recession, blue top milk and Bigfoot. The follow-up to the duo’s debut show which was recorded for NextUp and transferred to the Soho Theatre. 'One of the best adverts for modern alternative comedy' (EdFestMag.com). 'Inventive and increasingly hysterical' (Skinny). 'Brims with ideas and creativity' **** (ThreeWeeks).
David McIver is a Nice Little Man
Look, it’s David McIver, the nicest little man in town giving it a good go with his debut hour of riffs, bits and skits. Come gather round and stare greedily with those hungry, sparkling eyes, mouth hung agape, chin glazed with drool, at his silly comedy characters. 'A refreshing breath of air in every sense' (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Unique, silly... a fascinating blend of high nonsense' (MumbleComedy.net). Selected for the BBC New Comedy Award 2017. As heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra and seen on BBC Three.
Ali Brice's Lemonade Stand
You are cordially invited to the grand reopening of Ali Brice's Lemonade Stand. Expect silly characters, daft voices and bizarre audience interaction. Brice has quickly become a master of his own hilarious style of character comedy. Combined with his lightning-fast wit, this makes for a truly unique show from a one-of-a-kind performer. Come and celebrate the silliness! 'A twinkle-eyed comedy natural' (ShortCom.co.uk). 'Eric Meat is a side-splittingly comical entity' (TheUpcoming.co.uk). 'Joyously bonkers... the perfect level of exaggerated oddness' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Tear-inducingly hysterical' (Skinny).
Elf Lyons: ChiffChaff
The Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee (Best Show 2017) presents her one-woman musical about the economy. You read that right. Let’s get fiscal. The queen of clown is back and she’s making the dismal science fun with a whole orchestra and an Invisible Hand. BBC New Talent Hotlist 2017. Fringe World Best Comedy Show 2018 nominee. British Vogue's '20 Names of Now'. 'A fast talking, smart-thinking stand-up for whom the adjective 'kooky' could have been invented for' (Guardian). 'Hysterical tour de force' ** (ThreeWeeks). 'A fantastic comedic success' (Fest). *** (Scotsman).
Rob Auton: The Talk Show
This is a comedy/theatre/spoken word show about talking. Following on from previous shows about hair, sleep, water, faces, the sky and yellow, Rob now turns his attention to talking because he is ready to talk. 'A genuine original. Poetical, philosophical, humane, completely charming and funny to boot' (Guardian). 'His delicate turn of phrase is a delight to hear and he has a truly unique voice, which, among the hundreds of acts at the Fringe, is no mean feat' (BritishComedyGuide.info). 'One of my absolute favourites' (Daniel Kitson) 'Just sad' (Vanessa Feltz).
Short & Curly: Young at Start
Curly is convinced that appearing youthful is the answer to success and he will do whatever is necessary to get 'youth'. Cut a long story short. Short ruins it. If you thought pink custard was good you'll crap your pants over this! 'It's completely hilarious and amazing' (BroadwayBaby.com). 'An exhilarating experience' (ShortCom.co.uk). 'Quick changes and even quicker wit' (ThreeWeeks). 'Teases the crazy side we are encouraged to mask' * (Define Arts).
Lineup subject to change.
