My top 5 picks to see at Brighton Fringe 2013 #BrightonFringe @BrightonFringe


The Brighton Fringe 2013 website is now live (how exciting!) and tickets go on sale to the general public from Wednesday 6 March. If you are a friend of the fringe you can buy them online now (because you are posh)  I have had a browse through the brochure and put together a handful of my top 5 favourite recommendations in no particular order. 

Anna Morris :  Dolly Mixture at Laughing Horse at the Caroline of Brunswick on 4, 24 - 25 May

"Acclaimed character comedian and internet sensation due to Georgina the Bride,  Anna Morris, brings her smash-hit Edinburgh, Camden and Glasgow Fringe show to Brighton. A darkly sweet collection of comedy treats and six delightful dolls to charm and surprise you."

Read my review of Dolly Mixture for the Funny Women website from when I went to see Anna  at Leicester Square Theatre.


'Andrew & the Pony' at Laughing Horse at The Quadrant on 4 May and 26 May

The world premiere of Andrew & the Pony will be a eclectic treat of comedy with story telling, video links and much more. Recommended if you want to see something fresh and original.  Mainly just go along and see if there actually will be a pony. 


Beasts will be upstairs at Three and Ten from 18 - 19 May. 
I saw Beasts at Edinburgh last year and thought they were fantastic. They pull you into their surreal world of sketches and will have you laughing from the start. Plus, they are three really nice guys.

"Slick, surreal and wonderfully unique" **** (Broadway Baby), "One of the slickest sketch shows of this year’s fringe" **** (The List), "Side-splittingly funny" **** (Three Weeks)



Luisa Omielan is at Brighton Festival with two shows including the famous sell out show What Would Beyonce Do?! at Komedia Studio on Tuesday 21 May. I have seen Luisa perform at the Comedy Cafe and loved the experience. I even took my 'What would Beyonce do?!' badge to Paris and to the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. (see pic below) I know tickets will sell like hot cakes for this show so I will be buying mine first thing next Wednesday. Her other show is Ladies am I right? A work in progress and will definitely be worth seeing part of Laughing Horse at The Quadrant from 4-6 May .


The Funny Women Heats 2013 @ Komedia Studio on Saturday 25 May
"Come and see some up-and-coming talent taking part in this first-round heat hosted and headlined by 2012 Funny Women Awards finalists Lucy Frederick and Viv Groskop." I will be trying my hand at getting through these first rounds so please keep your fingers crossed for me!

Roll on Wednesday 6 March when I can buy Brighton Fringe tickets!  If you have any recommendations please let me know.

at Laughing Horse @ The Quadrant
'Andrew and the Pony' seeks the truth where others dare not, a bit like Indiana Jones where they end up in a cave drinking elixir but without that scary whip and the Nazis. A force majeure of storytelling, song, accompanying evidence via video links. Future reviews might say "The Pony had a lovely smile" (Equine Weekly)
