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).

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.
As heard on Josh Howie’s Losing It on BBC Radio 4.
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)

New show from me, Adam Hess, who is a very cool comedian from Brighton who then moved to London because they have more Pret A Mangers there.
I have been on Tonight at the Palladium (ITV), Rob Delaney’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and there have been four requests for me to appear on Mock The Week but they’ve said no each time (lol little joke there).
