JOHN-LUKE ROBERTS: ALL I WANNA DO IS [FX: GUNSHOTS] WITH A [FX: GUN RELOADING] AND A [FX: CASH REGISTER] AND PERFORM SOME COMEDY!
Quick, hide! The Fringe favourite returns with a brand-new hour of extraordinary absurdist character comedy nonsense. Just terrific. Blam blam! 'A show as bafflingly stupid as this should rightly divide an audience down the middle, but through some strange alchemy the crowd absolutely lap it up... a consistently hilarious hour of measured madness' **** (List). 'An hour of joyously daft character comedy' **** (Telegraph). 'This is alternative comedy close to its pinnacle' **** (Chortle.co.uk).
TIM RENKOW TRIES TO PUNCH DOWN
Comedy’s one rule is 'no punching down'. Tim Renkow is a crippled, redneck, Mexican Jew. It’s hard for him to find a group he is not allowed to make fun of, which is insulting. Join Tim as he tries to find a group that is off-limits and prove that he's not the bottom of the social ladder. 'A proper renegade as a comic’ **** (Scotsman). 'Renkow is a smart comedian who also knows how to handle dark, risky material' (Guardian). Star of A Brief History of Tim (BBC), Bobby and Harriet Get Married (VICELAND).
THEA-SKOT THROUGH THE HEART AND YOU'RE TO BLAME
Following her five-star smash-hit It's Thea-Skot in Here (So Take Off All Your Clothes), Alison Thea-Skot brings you a sizzling explosion of chaotic character comedy. A high-octane solo sketch show featuring a lovelorn Oyster card. One of the Observer's Female Millennials Changing Comedy. Telegraph's Best of the Fringe. As heard on BBC Radio 4. ‘Brave, silly, a little bit unhinged and very, very funny’ ***** (FunnyWomen.com). ‘Devious and gleefully naughty characters’ **** (Skinny). ‘An arresting spectacle’ **** (Scotsman). ‘An exhilarating show’ **** (List). ‘An absolute tour de force’ (BBC Comedy).
