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...

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. ...

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...

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....
