MAY 8 at 12:00 (45 min) - FREE

Let’s face it, we’re all nuts. When you’re a middle-aged, blind obsessive compulsive, though, life can be particularly odd, not to mention confusing and more than a little rude. Having previously traipsed around Edinburgh, Hove and Plymouth, London’s gentlest comedian, Stephen Portlock, accompanied by his impeccably well behaved dog Hamlet, and bringing a cuddly Minion in tow, returns once again to Brighton to leave residents and visitors bewildered, befuddled and bemused as he delivers a very ramshackle guide through the highways and byways of life’s weirdness.

This powerful, colourful lady head-of-state finally reveals her “all” to her people - her undying love for her dogs, the men in her life, her single-handed success at forging peace processes, her secret passion for motorbikes, coming out at 96 as a song-&-dance gal. You are regally commanded to...

So, come along and let him get you into position to have a laugh. And the great thing is that the show is over in time for Gerry to go for a nap. He's 69, after all. ...
