“If you like your comedy to be intelligent, inventive, thought-provoking and delivered with a passion, urgency and enthusiasm that makes an hour feel like a fantastic ten minutes, then you’re going to love Nish Kumar’s show. If you don’t like your comedy like that, then probably just go somewhere else, but you’ll be missing out on a corker.” – TimeOut

“Steel is lightning fast and knows his crowd. We end up sharing in his sense of overwhelming incredulity but also seeing the humour – and buying into his love of this pluralist, multi-cultural and overwhelmingly tolerant country. ” – Oxford Times

THE BLEEDING OBVIOUS presents RAINBOW HEART
Jul 22 @ 5:00pm – 8:00pm

“Life is never quite as straight as it seems…”

What happens when you tumble out of the closet and find yourself trying to work out exactly where you are on the gender and sexuality spectrum?

Rainbow Heart, the new musical show from The Bleeding Obvious endeavours to describe the experience through songs and tales of joy, grief, happiness, loss and defiance.

Touring again in 2018, it’s been referred to as “hilarious”, “thoughtful” and “astounding”. Featuring tracks from her debut album as well as new tunes, let The Bleeding Obvious take you on a rollercoaster rainbow ride…

With support.

Entry by donation for Childrens’ transgender charity MERMAIDS UK.

“The queer Victoria Wood” – Yorkshire Evening Post
“A masterpiece” – Gay Yorkshire
“Groundbreaking” – Warlock Asylum

JUSTIN MOORHOUSE + ANDY FIELD
Jul 24 @ 7:30pm – 10:30pm

A double-bill of Edinburgh comedy previews, from one of Manchester’s top stand-ups, Justin Moorhouse, and BBC New Comedy Award 2017 finalist Andy Field.

“Here was not a moment without laughter. [Justin] smashed the hour out of the park, jammed with vivid characters and great comic ‘Northernisms’, really consolidating Moorhouse’s position as top ‘Northern bloke’ comic.” – Chortle

“Field’s short and disjointed sketches are hilariously entertaining. His show might be indulgent, but it is one that will make you laugh until it hurts nonetheless. You’re likely to find yourself still laughing long after it’s over as little flashbacks of his genius pop back into your mind. For an hour of hilarious escapism, look no further.” – Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

SEANN WALSH + JAKE LAMBERT
Jul 31 @ 7:30pm – 10:30pm

A double-bill of Edinburgh comedy previews, from Brighton boy done good, Seann Walsh, and up-and-coming youngster Jake Lambert.

“Seann Walsh is a brilliant observational comic, with an ability to tease out the comicality of even the most mundane, everyday occurrence. His commentary has the audience in hysterics.” – BroadwayBaby

“As his Twitter feed will attest [Jake Lambert’s] got gags to burn, and can weave them seamlessly into his routines. He’s also quite a palatable, mainstream proposition as a comic so the audience took to him pretty swiftly. Some of his jokes even have the whiff of old-school Tommy Cooper cheese about them, which isn’t a criticism.” – Chortle

BCOM presents #BATTLEROYALE
Aug 1 @ 7:30pm – 10:30pm

We here at BCOM like to be the show of firsts, which is why we feel it only appropriate to continue in our age old traditions of bringing Brighton the best new and interactive comedy ideas, with our uniquely themed monthly comedy events!

So this August, we bring to you Brighton’s first ever Comedy Roast Battle competition –
#BattleRoyale!

Eight comedy wordsmiths will do battle against one another in competing heats, with 5 slams or put downs each, and a 5-minute time limit per match.

The two winners of each heat (section of the show) will do battle to crown semi-finalists, and both semi-finalists will do battle later on in the show to crown our #BattleRoyale Champion! And each match will be decided by YOU! (Our lovely audience!)

The losers of each heat will have an opportunity at redemption, by teaming up in our Tag Team Turmoil Match!

The newly crowned champion doesn’t just reap the glory, but they also receive the honour of headlining the gig with a 15 minute set to close the show!

All MCed by our maestro of mischief and mayhem, Ant McEwan!

Acts announced so far:
Ade Foiadelli
Elle Bert
Samuel CH Zernig
Kuan-Wen Huang
Bim

This show won’t be for the faint of heart, as our comedy acts will be throwing down their top bombs and put downs on each other! But it will be a madcapped Wednesday night of summer entertainment, you won’t want to miss!

Entry £5/£4 (pay on the door)
