Welcome to Plankton-On-Sea, your classic British seaside town; donkeys, deckchairs and a deadly monster terrorising the shore. Written and performed by award-winning double act Dirty White Boys (Best New Act, London SketchFest 2016) and the incredible character comedian Alice Marshall (as featured on Comedy Central and BBC Radio 4).
Grab a bag of cockles and try to avoid bloodshed on the beach for this silly sinister sketch show. Think League of Gentlemen meets Jaws by way of Summer Holiday! “Spectacularly and compellingly funny” (The List).

Join Fiona Sagar and Vanessa Hammick for this double bill of new comedy:
Fiona Sagar (Funny Women Best Show nominee 2016 and 2017, The Groundlings Comedy Theatre, LA) returns to Brighton Fringe with a new work in progress character comedy show.
“A talented impressionist, completely morphs into an array of hilariously self-indulgent characters” **** (Fringebiscuit)
“Brilliant. I loved the ad lib. Still makes me laugh. Very memorable.” (Zara Janjua, STV)
“Naturally funny.” (Bryony Kimmings)
“Her range is really impressive… a very good hour in the company of an excellent performer” (Wee Review)
Vanessa Hammick (comedian and cycling instructor) was 9 when her Dad taught her to cycle.. On a cliff. He nearly got her killed three times on his wildly planned misadventures- but as a sedentary lifestyle can greatly shorten life expectancy, is staying on the brink of danger the best way to keep alive? Join her as she explores cycling, life, death, pollution and her Dad on my quest to discover The Golden Path.
Directed by Cariad Lloyd.
“Vanessa is the most fascinating, funny person I know” Lou Sanders.

A brand new hour of comedy from hilarious stand up Adele Cliff.
‘Dave’s Funniest Jokes of the Fringe’ 2018, 2017 and 2016.
“No doubt, she’s a nifty writer” (Chortle)
“It’s rare to see a female comedian who specialises in one-liners and Adele does this with great accomplishment. The skill of joke writing coupled with her likeable stage persona, mean that Adele is a very promising comic talent. Her material is consistently intelligent, witty and, most importantly, very funny.” (Lynne Parker, Founder of ‘Funny Women’).

Stand-up Canadian Comic David Tsonos has been auditioning for acting roles for twenty years. From adverts, TV series, and feature films, he has auditioned in Vancouver, Toronto, L.A. and London. He has auditioned for such major TV shows as X-Files and Battlestar Galactica, he has auditioned for movies you have never heard of and Hollywood blockbusters.
Through the bad and the more bad, David shows what the out of work actors life is really like. He shows you just what it takes to not make it in the acting business, to some this will be educational, to others shocking, but to all a good laugh.
• Every Tue in May @ 8:15pm •
Brand new stand-up from one of the most inventive comic voices in Britain. Caroline Mabey’s husband/boyfriend/partner (whatever!) just quit his accounting job to train as a dog groomer. Time for a life audit.

Writer on The News Quiz.
“No-one has made us laugh as much at this Fringe” (The Skinny)
“Mabey is thoroughly enjoyable company… the slightly deranged offspring of a menage a trois between Vic Reeves, Harry Hill and Floella Benjamin.” (Evening Standard)
“Hilarious… Funny and touching and brilliant” (The Guardian)
