This is going to be a Sleep Paralysis like none before! This month it falls on the weekend of Trans* Pride in Brighton, and to celebrate, we’re going to have the largest cast for any show we’ve done before and exclusively featuring Trans and Non Binary performers! Including:

Daphne: LSFYL champion, international performer, and professional Janet Street Porter impersonator, this is one queen who just doesn’t know when to stop! And for this night only will be the first person to co-host Sleep Paralysis!

Sammy Silver: the cutest bear on the Brighton scene! Amazing dancer and general good time chap!

Vlad Von Kitsch: the most glamour infused cryptid to grace any stage ever! Expect an immaculate look and an awe inspiring performance!

Ruby Porcelain: with her own unique take on all the classic rock greats, what will she bring this time?

And of course, Fuchsia Von Steel will be there to officiate over it all with her effortlessly graceful charm and wit, failing that she might have to cover herself in the nearest liquid and scream at people!

Doors are at 7, show starts at 8, £6.50 standard £5 students, carers come free, tipping system in action, so bring extra cash!

EDWARD ACZEL + STUART LAWS
Jul 23 @ 7:30pm – 10:00pm

A double bill of Edinburgh comedy previews.

NB: The previously-billed Tony Law has to spend some time in Canada for family reasons, so will not be appearing at the Caroline. In his place we have the award-winning hero of “anti-comedy”, Edward Aczel.

EDWARD ACZEL: Artificial Intellect
Ed promises to come up with a big idea to hang the whole thing on – but probably it’ll be based on a loose set of unconnected themes with no real purpose. There’ll be a demonstration of Ed’s acting skills, the odd political impression and the apocalypse included in the standard package. An unsatisfying experience to both perform and watch. But then… all things must pass. **** ‘A master of his genre’ (Kate Copstick, Scotsman). **** ‘Deliberate and expertly done’ (Claire Smith, Scotsman). **** ‘Deadpan dynamo’ (Mirror).
.

STUART LAWS is All In
Acclaimed stand-up (and the UK’s foremost gilet apologist) Stuart Laws reflects on the day his life changed forever when he risked everything in a Vegas poker tournament. A show about making difficult decisions, choosing different paths and gettin’ jiggy wit’ it. Stuart has appeared on BBC Radio 4, produced James Acaster’s Netflix specials and his live reporting of a dirty plates war became one of the most talked about Twitter threads of the year. ‘You’ll struggle to find a comedian with a better jokes per minute rate… A one-man episode of Arrested Development’ **** (Fest).

TOM ROSENTHAL: Manhood
Let the beaky boy from Friday Night Dinner (Channel 4) and Plebs (ITV2) tell you the story of how he spent his life trying to avenge the theft of his foreskin. Previous winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year and nominated for Best Breakthrough Artist at the British Comedy Awards. ‘High energy, impressive and precociously smart’ (Guardian). ‘Like a young Mark Watson, he packs in a very high degree of laughs per minute’ (List). ‘I don’t know whether you want to sell it as a whole show about your circumcision’ (Tim Key).

MAISIE ADAM: Hang Fire
2018 Best Newcomer nominee and Amused Moose National New Comic 2018 winner Maisie Adam returns to Edinburgh with her second hour, working out who is to blame and for what. As seen on ITV2’s The Stand Up Sketch Show. Winner of So You Think You’re Funny 2017. ‘Mightily impressive’ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Effortlessly charming’ (Skinny). ‘Go see Maisie now and have bragging rights for years to come’ (Herald). ‘Maisie Adam is phenomenal’ (Scotsman).

LUCY FREDERICK + AMY HOWERSKA
Jul 26 @ 8:00pm – 10:30pm

AMY HOWERSKA: Serious Face

Non-TV famous, non-award-winning comic Amy Howerska returns with a brand new show because she has not yet learnt her lesson.

Through a series of errors (love), Howerska has accidentally found herself Californian. As her friends beg her “not to get all American”, Howerska knows that she will never be that confident. But she’s made some loltastic stories out of it; you know, “Americans are like this and Brits are like ‘ello Governor” sort of comedy, but not rubbish.

A BBC Writers Room writer.
As heard on BBC Radio 4 and in your local shop buying Wotsits.

“Sardonic, charismatic and teasing” – The Scotsman

LUCY FREDERICK: Famtastic

Three years ago comedian Lucy Frederick – ‘Delightful’ (BroadwayBaby.com) – was picking herself up from the floor and ordering a gin and tonic; now she is picking up dirty socks and ordering fish fingers and peas.

From disaster queen to model stepmum – this is a stand-up show about Lucy’s journey towards becoming part of a modern blended family, avoiding its wicked pitfalls and navigating the alarming world of parenting.

‘A genuinely gifted performer’ **** (Scotsman)
‘Strong and diverse’ **** (ThreeWeeks)
‘Like catching up with a best friend’ **** (TheWeeReview.com)
