Olga Koch: Fight

In 2014, Olga Koch's father got stopped by authorities on the Russian border, which resulted in the most surreal year of her family's life. This year, the Amused Moose National New Comic Award finalist will try to dissect this real-life spy drama with nothing but a projector and 'a naturally comic mind' (Bruce Dessau). As heard on The Now Show.

Sara Barron: For Worse

The ‘reigning queen of New York’s live storytelling scene' (Jon Ronson) and host of the hit US storytelling show, The Moth, delivers her debut stand-up hour. Filthy, funny and incisive, Barron skewers her husband, her child, WhatsApp, herself and, notably, a tweenage sex script she wrote way back in 1992. As heard on The Guilty Feminist and BBC Radio 4 Extra. Contributor to Dave Gorman’s Modern Life is Goodish. 'Darkly humorous... smart... acerbic' (Bust Magazine). 'Rib-tickling' (Chicago Sun-Times). 'When you're not squirming, you're laughing out loud' (LA Times).

Lineup subject to change.
