Tap-dancing, stand-up (not for long, I'm 67), and shot-drinking. And false teeth. Gerry Carroll-When I was Alive is a silly and profound look at where I've been. It's a great lunchtime show, you can have a nap afterwards. Actually I'm 68, but last year doesn't count, right?...

Joe has been a support act for Frankie Boyle and Alexie Sayle and has written for Have I Got News For You, so if anyone can write funny stuff about politics it should be him. But he can’t! Boris is too awful, Trump is too ridiculous, and if he has to write one more joke about Brexit then he’s going to scream. Joe’s starting to wonder why he chose to be a satirist in the first place.   But the exploration of why he loved the angry outsider status of being a political comedian isn’t straightforward. It brings with it some reflections on the labels we give to one another and some revelations ab...

Robert Inston battles with labels, types and even psychological profiles. He, I, her are not from that discipline but have remained alive long enough to still share the insights and joie de vivre of now and then on this very dark matter. The suspects like crime itself are numberless so this selection are not exactly "favourites" but those that illuminates digression from what is considered normal behaviour. Robert Inston becomes Commisioner Warren; Duke of Clarence; George Chapman; John Piser, Leather Apron; and Aaron Kosminski... ...

This show will be a marriage of material from the show I wrote for 2020 festivals and new material developed over this year. I will be previewing it as much as possible both online and (hopefully) in person at festivals, online shows and my own online WIPs as well as Covid safe venues I can personally organise with. I believe the show will be all the stronger for the extended development period and I have been working on it with my director for a long time already. I have had a great with Laughing Horse at previous Brighton Fringes and I'd love to come back again. UK Pun Champion 2020....

Leslie Ewing-Burgesse knows what she's doing. She always knows what she's doing. She just seems like she doesn't. But she's bored of talking about insecurity. Come see her attempt to figure out how to do a show that's purely silly, without getting weighed down by existentialism*! "She is flamboyant, loveable and we all want to be her best mate. Funny and insightful, she is one to keep an eye on as she inevitably rises through the comedy scene." (The Only Culture Vulture) * she has a habit of getting weighed down by existentialism...
