Tamsyn Kelly: Petroc
Growing up on an estate near Lands End with a dangerous father and a disabled mother, Tamsyn dreamed of one day moving to London to become a total badass with enough money to buy fancy food and drink espresso martinis. Ten years after leaving home, has she succeeded? 'Hilarious' (Independent). As seen/heard on: BBC Three, All 4 and BBC Radio 1.
Will Rowland: Cocoon
Highly anticipated debut hour from a uniquely silly and cerebral stand-up. He has been a finalist in five comedy competitions, including Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year 2017. As seen on BBC Three. 'Twisted the conventions of comedy' (Chortle.co.uk).
Harriet Braine - Les Admirables
In this historical feminist coming-of-age musical comedy show, Harriet brings forth a team of rebellious women from the history of science to help her wage battle against ignorance, patriarchy and her inner demons. She also looks back over her career as a performer, from school plays to now, presenting her achievements alongside those of renowned inventors, healers and technological pioneers. Bold move, idiot. Funny Women Award winner and So You Think You're Funny? finalist, 2016. Buxton Fringe Comedy Award winner 2017. 'Marvellous' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Her lyrics were truly inspired' (Bruce Dessau). 'Fairly niche' (Stylist).
Alice Fraser: Mythos
Alice Fraser has been lying to herself. But aren't we all? In Mythos, she takes on the stories and lies that we tell ourselves about ourselves and each other. In this clever and very funny show Alice (co-host of The Bugle) asks: Is beauty truth? Is truth beautiful? What are flat earth conspiracists? Does Australia actually exist? What does anything even mean anymore? Let Alice tell you. ***** (EdinburghGuide.com). **** (List). 'Intelligent and thoughtful, Fraser can write a cracking joke' (Chortle.co.uk). The Trilogy: #1 Australian podcast, 2018.
Rob Auton: The Time Show
The Time Show is a comedy/theatre/spoken word show about time. It is suitable for people who know of time. Following on from his shows about the colour yellow, the sky, faces, water, sleep, hair and talking, award-winning writer and performer Rob Auton turns his attention to time. 'A genuine original. Poetical, philosophical, humane, and funny to boot' (The Guardian). 'We need him' (Scotsman). 'Charming, eccentric and uplifting, Auton is a talent to watch' (Independent). 'Funny, baffling and deeply moving' (Telegraph). 'Just sad' (Vanessa Feltz).
Privates: A Sperm Odyssey
Attention all sperm! This is a military operation in procreation. Join three fun guys who fertilise in an adventure as big as life itself. Imagine Saving Private Ryan meets the sex education you wish you had, and they don't wear adequate protection. Nine months later this show pops out. Don't be ejacu-late, but don't come early. The most physical comedy you could wish for, from the pr*cks behind the total sell-out Planet Earth III, Luke Rollason, Christian Brighty and Tom Curzon. ***** (EdFestMag.com). **** (VoiceMag.uk). 'Made me cry with laughter' **** (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Hugely entertaining' (Chortle.co.uk).
