MNT CHARITY SHOWCASE
Feb 22 @ 7:30pm – 11:00pm

Medical News Today, a part of Healthline UK, presents a charity gig showcasing a plethora of local talent, a veritable cornucopia of creativity from our lovely city, featuring musicians, singers, a rapper, a spoken word artist, and more.

This gig will be raising money for RISE, the Brighton-based charity supporting people affected by domestic abuse and violence.

Entry £5 (pay on the door)

Acts include:

FELMAN
Felman is a rapper, beatmaker, and multi-instrumentalist from Brighton. Fresh off a rap battle in New York City and last year’s release of his album, Tidings, he’ll be mucking in with live production, keyboards, storytelling, humour, and lyricism. If you like your kicks wonky and your metaphors obtuse, you’re going to want to catch this one.

TIM “HOLY MOTHERS” NEWMAN
Variously referred to as dark, intricate, melancholy, and atmospheric, Tim’s acoustic offerings are soothingly maudlin. His songs have a depth of emotion fostered by a long line of failed musical projects spanning two decades and a swarm of genres: Tim’s musical pedigree is as varied as it is unsuccessful. Although each of his musical endeavours has exploded in turn, his solo acoustic efforts have meandered along in the background, gently wheezing as they stalk through the half light. On a good day, Tim’s music is a cross between an incredibly poor man’s Jeff Buckley and Dave Gahan during the heroin years.

TIM HUZAR
Tim has been playing music with friends for many years. Sometimes he plays music on his own. He is inspired by Nobuo Uematsu, the BBC Radio 4 Adaptation of Lord of the Rings, and the first half of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of the Worlds, although he doesn’t sound much like any of them.

MARIA COHUT
Poet Maria Cohut — lovingly known as “Coco Death” and “Morbid Maria” among her colleagues at MNT — hails from Romania, the fabled land of vampires, where there are over 40 different ways of saying, “I’m drunk”. A lover of dramatic weirdness, Maria often collaborates with her typewriter soulmate, Matilda, to put together lyrical tales of love and heartache. If you like to listen to poetry with a dark twist, that prods fresh bruises and asks one too many personal questions, then you will definitely enjoy this mettlesome act.

THE OMBUDSMAN
James McIntosh plays in bands mostly, such as Supermarket and the Red Diamond Dragon Club, but alone he is The Ombudsman! Despite his many shortcomings in guitar playing and singing, he’s not afraid to tackle the big issues. Love, loss, alienation, the longing to be a penguin rather than a human — it’s all covered. Be prepared.

ADELE CLIFF + MATT HOSS
Mar 10 @ 7:30pm – 10:00pm

On the 10th March, Matt Hoss and Adele Cliff will be trying out their brand new Edinburgh Shows. This will be a Work-in-Progress show, meaning that you get to see their shows in the early stages. This means, raw jokes and amazing gems.
Because it is a preview show it is ridiculously cheap! For two hours of comedy it is only £3 or £1.50 for students!

Here is some praise about the acts:

Praise for Adele Cliff
Dave’s Funniest Jokes of the Fringe 2017 & 2016
Huffington Post’s Ten Must See New Acts Edinburgh Fringe 2016
Finalist Nottingham Comedy Festival New Act of the Year 2016
Finalist Bath Comedy Festival New Act of the Year 2016
Semi Finalist New Comedian of the Year 2016
Semi Finalist Laughing Horse New Act of the Year 2015

“ Consistently intelligent, witty and, most importantly, very funny.” – Lynne Parker, Founder, Funny Women.
“I find her really annoying to watch, as I’m constantly kicking myself for not having thought of those gags first.” – Gary Delaney

Praise & Blurb for Matt’s Show HERE COMES YOUR MAN

Matt Hoss is a hopeless romantic, (with “hopeless” being the operative word). This upbeat stand-up comedy hour looks positively at Matt’s failed attempts at dating. For Matt, romance is a minefield and love is worry.

He hilariously discusses awkward sexual encounters, racist girlfriends and seducing ladies with poetry. Matt analyses the heart of break-ups, why they hurt and why it’s good to go through them. Come along and see Matt’s heart-warming tales about rejection & acceptance.

“Really funny” **** – Broadway Baby

SMUT SLAM: MELT
Mar 13 @ 8:00pm – 10:30pm

SMUT SLAM: a sure cure for your deep freeze!

Yep, it’s that time, when we are all more than ready to wear short sleeves again, or no sleeves at all, so we’re bringing the heat and hopefully hastening the process. Brighton’s only dirty storytelling open mic–based on real life, real lust, real sex–returns on Wednesday, March 13, to the Caroline of Brunswick (39 Ditching Rd, Brighton) with the theme “MELT.” We want your stories of heat, release, and/or the drip-drip-drip of long-held something finally slipping away.

ADV TICKETS: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4093307

Created and hosted by professional perv Cameryn Moore, the Smut Slam features real-life, first-person sex stories, guest stories from our panel of celebrity judges, and also THE FUCKBUCKET, a convenient receptacle for all your anonymous questions and confessions!

CELEBRITY JUDGE PANEL TBA!

**** FUCKBUCKET PRIZE PROVIDED BY Njoy, long-time sponsor of Smut Slams and other Cameryn Moore events
**** Storytelling prizes provided by the ever-generous She Said boutique

SMUT SLAMMERS sign up on the night to tell a 5-minute dirty story, based on their real lives, and a lucky eight to ten names will be drawn at random.

RULES: – no notes (this is storytelling) – no costumes or props (this is not theatre) – only five minutes (with a one-minute grace period) AND – the story must be real and have happened to you. Stories often are funny and/or epic win, but we want to encourage people to consider sharing their sad, disturbing, poignant, serious, simple and/or “fail” experiences, too.

IMPORTANT: Smut Slam is queer-friendly, kink- AND vanilla-friendly, fat-friendly, sex worker-friendly, virgin-friendly, polyamory-friendly, we’re really, really friendly. We welcome people with all types and amounts of sexual experiences. We DO NOT welcome stories involving racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia or any other kind of discrimination, objectification, or fetishization. All stories must be CONSENSUAL!

NOT A SMUT SLAMMER? Don’t worry. The audience is in for a good time at SMUT SLAM! Sit back and enjoy. All we ask is: – No interrupting. – No heckling. – No necking. Doors open at 7:15pm–come in early to get a drink and grab some grub!–and the smut starts slamming at 8. Admission is £6/advance and £8/door, 18 and over please!

**** Remember to bring your Frequent Filth card! If you don’t have one yet, ask for it at the door!

SMUT SLAM is CREATED by Cameryn Moore, an award-winning playwright/performer, sex activist and educator, and former phone sex operator. When not performing, riding the train, or actually having sex herself, Cameryn writes Sidewalk Smut: custom type-written erotica as street performance and literary art.

OFF THE CUFF’S CHAOTIC BIOPIC
Apr 2 @ 8:00pm – 9:30pm

Following three sell-out Fringe runs with hit show ‘Crime and Funishment’ and more than a decade of acclaimed and raucously funny performances, Brighton’s improvised comedy revolutionaries return with a brand new show for 2019!

Join them as they delve into the secret lives of celebrities, creating a unique biopic documentary each night on stage, all based on your suggestions. What did David Bowie do before Ziggy? Was Marilyn Monroe really an alien? What’s Her Majesty’s hidden hobby? They’ll reveal all, with a heap of laughter and anarchy thrown in for good measure!
