Nathan Roberts! Siblings! David McIver! Previews!
Sunday 14 July
An Objectively Funny Afternoon
Nathan Roberts: Glowed Up
Glowed Up is an anecdotal anti-romcom from stand-up comedian Nathan Roberts. This is a show for anyone who’s ever fallen in love with the wrong person. Or fallen in love with the right person. Or simply met another human being. (If you’ve never met another human being you’re still welcome, but please sit near the back). Nathan Roberts has written for BBC Radio 4's The Now Show, The News Quiz and Newsjack, and is the 2018 winner of the BBC's prestigious The Felix Dexter bursary.
Siblings: The Siblinginging
Following last year's sell-out show, character comedians and IRL sisters Maddy and Marina are back and bigger than ever (at least physically). This August will see them squeeze their genes (and jeans) into the auld heffer. Expect Gaulier-trained clowning from Maddy, intensely serious acting from Marina and a whole closet full of family secrets. Don't forget to bring a box of tissues! (Material is suitable for anyone who has, or has seen a sister). 'Totally absurd' ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Outrageous ridiculous character comedy' **** (ScotsGay.co.uk). 'Rising Stars of British Comedy' (Mail on Sunday).
David McIver: Teleport
Come! Escape into the Realms of Warquest, where you can level up, complete quests, defeat monsters and watch a cheeky little man do some stupid character comedy. That's right my friends, it's another bit of fun from David McIver, all about escapism, loneliness and role-playing games. 'Had his audience in fits of laughter' ***** (LondonTheatre.co.uk). 'Uniquely inventive in its approach to comedy' ****½ (ShortCom.com). **** (BroadwayBaby.com). **** (FringeGuru.com). **** (MumbleComedy.net). Appearances on BBC Radio 1, Radio 4 Extra, BBC Three and iPlayer. Directed by Jordan Brookes.
Produced by Objectively Funny, 'the art form's cutting edge' (Guardian).
