2018 dating is a disaster so it’s time to let the crazy out! MTV presenter, comedian and co-host of the UK’s leading LGBTQ+ award-nominated podcast ‘A Gay and a NonGay’, James Barr unleashes a hilariously desperate attempt to finally meet ‘the one’, and you’re all invited!

Join James as he dishes the dirt on his brutally honest and hilarious dating life and Tinder-style swipes of the audience to find his way up-the-aisle. A 60 minute make-out session, also featuring a host of stories from his awkward Z-List celebrity thirst. With massive apologies to Justin Bieber…

BITTER SOUR: DIVAS
Jun 9 @ 8:00pm – 10:30pm

Well you wanted a twist? Bitter Sour is back once again and this time we’re channeling our inner Divas! Who will reign supreme? will it be the power pop ballads of Britney and Christina? The madness within the minds on the Bush or Bjork? Or the darn right ludicrous behavior of Havisham or Cruella! we shall be exploring all aspects of Diva and what it means to our performers…

Cherry Fakewell! The queen diva of Bitter Sour, she’ll do anything for a twix- one finger not two, Cherry knows a thing or two about being an “it” girl, but where will her Diva inspiration lead her?

Guest co-host for the evening Hans (Head Shoulders Knees and Toes) (Knees and Toes) Euff. Addiction will be busy being a Diva so is handing over for this one to the capable hands of… Hans! but where will his diva side lead him?

Plus special guests…

Daphne the 10 year old! This Queen is taking Brighton by storm. After winning Lip Sync For your Life and performing alongside such talents as Sasha Valour we’re sure shes picked up a thing or two on how to be a diva.

Dick Day! We can’t wait for this one. Prepare to be taken on a journey of the strange and bizarre! They will leave you gagging for more!

And…. Clare Successfully! Clare Successfully is living up to her name, successfully gliding and twirling her way through the Scottish drag scene… and will be making her England debut here with Bitter Sour! Come catch her putting the D in Diva with us.

PAUL SINHA + LUCY FREDERICK
Jun 26 @ 7:30pm – 10:30pm

A double-bill of Edinburgh comedy previews, from TV quizzer, stand-up and former doctor Paul Sinha and “writer, actor and fat model” (her words) Lucy Frederick.

“Comedy gold – be it his dealings in his day job as ‘The Sinnerman’ on ITV’s The Chase and the Z-list celebrity shenanigans that inevitably brings, and his navigation up the quiz league table of London’s various pub quizzes. Personal but not overbearing, Sinha lets you in enough to see what makes him tick but never where he’s going next, a skill that makes every punchline feel fresh.” – The Skinny

“Frederick produces a strong and diverse show, with just a hint of non consensual audience participation. Wonderfully light hearted and enjoyable” – ThreeWeeks

Advance tickets £7+b.f. / £10 on the door.

ZOE LYONS + SARAH CALLAGHAN
Jul 10 @ 7:30pm – 10:30pm

A double-bill of Edinburgh comedy previews, from Mock the Week regular Zoe Lyons and rising star Sarah Callaghan.

“Always fizzling with indignation and throwing out a hugely enjoyable mix of brutal putdowns and richly funny stories, Lyons has what it takes to delight any crowd.” – The Guardian

“Armed with bags of attitude, [Callaghan]’s a refreshing working-class comedy voice…reminiscent of a young Kathy Burke.” – The Herald

Advance tickets £7+b.f. / £10 on the door.

PITY LAUGHS: A TALE OF TWO GAYS (FREE!)
Jul 12 @ 7:30pm – 9:00pm

MORE PERVERTED, MORE DEPRESSED, MORE JOKES…THE GAYS ARE BACK!

“The first true gem of the 2017 Fringe.” (Broadway Baby ★★★★★)

Mark’s parents are dead. That’s not a joke, though it is really funny. He and Will are also gay – in the modern sense of course; they’re certainly not ‘happy’. Mark’s stand-up about being a gay orphan meets explicit parody gay literotica from Will (think 50 SHADES OF GAY). Two gays, one orphan, absolutely no limits.

“Very well written…horrifyingly funny” EdFringe Review ★★★★

“Hysterical…some of the most depraved, disgusting filth I’ve ever heard in my life” Three Weeks

FREE ENTRY!
