“Comedy, music and more…”
Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun
A special Christmas comedy show for Sussex Beacon staff, featuring:
PAUL F TAYLOR
Doors 7:00pm / Show 7:30pm
As any morally upstanding member of our community knows, the secret to a perfect Christmas party is in the preparation of the meat.
As such, the beast has been (in strictly this order) plucked, stuffed, roasted, and eventually killed.
The only remaining step…
…is for her to put on a show!
Indeed, Fuchsia Von Steel would really like to give you one for Christmas. It’s time for Sleep Paralysis: Volume XMAS! (We finally ran out of capitalisation allowance for roman numerals! For those who are interested, it’s our 28th show!)
Our first guest of the evening is the dreamy GEM DIVINE! A small brown clown who fell to this earth from a distant solitary planet. With a hat full of rhinestones and pockets full of balloons, Gem is on the search of emotional understanding. With her silly antics and glittery grin this whimsical weirdo will show you clowns do in fact need love too…
Also joining the lineup is the incomparable OEDIPUSSI REX! A Beardy drag Barbarian, with acts as inconsistent as the Gods themselves! Epic or Tragic? You decide!
And your charming hostess for the evening; the subject of beloved Christmas song “Grandma Got Ran Over By a Reindeer”, FUCHSIA VON STEEL!
Doors open at 7, show starts at 8
£6.50 // students £5 // carers FREE!
Also, we have a tipping system in place so make sure you bring plenty of change for your Fuchsia Farthings!
To really enter into the cabaret spirit, dressing up is highly encouraged for audience members! The winner of our runway competition receives a very special prize! Festive looks encouraged!
Our SECOND Cabaret Lab Xmas Burlesque Special!!!
Welcome to XMAS 2: Electric Boogaloo!
Celebrating some of our favourite performers from Cabaret Lab’s sexier side, and ringing in the season with some classic, some modern, some silly, some sweet, some naughty, some nice but all sensual and sexy burlesque!
Come to the Caroline of Brunswick for about 7:30 on Dec 18th to join the fun, but try to arrive early to get a seat, as we will fill up quick!!
Free entry, but donations are gratefully accepted and hugely appreciated!

We hand pick our acts from the best up and coming acts in the UK comedy scene, guaranteeing a brilliant line up. Watch this space for line-ups!
Friday 20th December
Ho ho ho! Come and celebrate Christmas and host Dave Fensome’s birthday because he was selfish enough to be born on Christmas Eve! As is the norm there will be a stellar line up awaiting you, including headliner Sara Barron:
“These days, the market is pretty well saturated when it comes to memoir. Which means it has to be good; it has to be different. Sara Barron’s essays… are, dare we say it, as funny as David Sedaris’. When you aren’t squirming, you’re laughing out loud.”
– Los Angeles Times
“Sara Barron is the reigning queen of New York’s live storytelling scene.”
– Jon Ronson, author of The Psychopath Test
As always we have a great supporting line up of comedians including Joe Foster and Lenny Sherman. Hosting will be the birthday boy himself Dave Fensome. There may even be free cake and mince pies……
An open mic night of epic proportions!
Are you funny? Can you dance? Do you burlesque? Have a hidden talent?
Come join us in the Laboratory, where pros and noobs alike can test new material in front of a friendly audience.
Singers, dancers, comedians, clowns, jugglers, burlesque, variety acts and more!
First Sunday of every month. Mail Jack Kristiansen to book a slot!
BCOM provide an inclusive environment for ALL forms of comedy and for ALL audience members! So you can sit back and enjoy the best sketch, character, improv, music, poetry and stand up from around the country, and we can welcome a unique and diverse line up of performances every single month!
For acts interested in a 7 minute spot, please drop us a message on www.facebook.com/BrightonCOM, with a brief description of your act and where possible a short video! Thanks!
