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)

Once again we are inviting back a host of Bitter Sour favorites and some fresh faces for a pride party like no other. Count Addiction and Cherry Fakewell set out to find the best of alternative drag and house them in a grotesque melting pot of camp, punk, queer, cabaret debauchery to delight your senses. After two sell out Pride shows this year we once again aim to bring you a bigger and better show then before: Join Count Addiction and Cherry fakewell as we take you into our 1940’s Berlin cabaret club for a tale of celebration, love, danger, tragedy, and hope.
