Award-winning children's author Stuart Reid lets rip with a brilliant bout of bums, boogers and big bottom burps, bringing his books to life with mirth, madness and mayhem! His Brighton Fringe show in 2019 was a complete sell-out, so tickets are expected to sell fast... in fact, faster than following through with fantastic flatulence. Warning... this show may contain a video of a monkey scratching its bottom. This show may contain great big piles of elephant poo. And it will definitely contain side-splitting comedy, laughter and entertainment for children of all ages... from 4 years to 94 yea...

After a year away, triple award-winning Irish comedian & scientist, Donal Vaughan, brings his hugely popular science, comedy, magic family show back to Brighton once again with 3 brand new tricks added to the show.

Building a world with words then painting it impossibly vibrant colours, this is blind craft. Tales of Hamlet the mysteriously quiet dog, tales of the blind Hogwarts, tails or head it doesn’t matter what we call we always lose the coin toss because we see the world in a different way. We have blind jokes and stories of sightless travails, but we are so much more than blind comedians, Richard Wheatley is a high energy nerd with a talent for audience chat and Stephen is a neurotic with OCD and a surreal sense of the abstract, and a blind neurotic can get seriously abstract! Two blind st...

An absurd debut show from two of Brighton’s best-loved (hopefully by someone) comics. Ali Macfarlan and Fran Kissling are polar opposites but one thing unites them: They’re INTENSE! This show could change your life. They’re just not sure how. Ali - Fun, engaging, faintly ridiculous, good with animals. Fran - Punctual. Tidy. 2019 Finalist: Bath Comedy Festival, Comedy Launchpad, Get-Up Stand-Up. ...

In his next life, Pete wants to be a greenfinch. Failing that he just wants to be happy. But can he be happy? Of course he can. Join poet and performance artist Pete Strong as he tries to make sense of life and the past, and how we can be shaped as people by the lands and hills we walk across. “His laconic and often surreal poetry was a treat, delivered in a calculated deadpan that highlighted its contemplative nature. An act well worth seeing.” Broadway Baby “Well-judged, walking a fine emotional line with an assured step...cathartically funny.” Chortle “Warped charm” The Argus "Gen...

Award-winning comedian and NHS psychiatrist Benji Waterstones has landed a book deal! Is he sitting on a 'modern classic' or are his publishers as deluded as his patients? Make your minds up together as he shrinks a decade specialising in mental health into a night of comedic (and humane) storytelling. "Perfect and hilarious" (Buzzfeed)...
