My top comedy picks for Brighton Fringe 2017 #Brighton #Brightonfringe @BrightonFringe @LambComedy

Here it is! My favourite time of year and my annual list of comedy picks who you should consider seeing over the Brighton Fringe. I could highlight all your brochures as usual, but to be honest it takes me too long! So here you are... Match these up with the comedy section of the actual brochure or search the shows/names on the Brighton Fringe website.

Firstly, let's start with Lamb Comedy Productions and yes, I'm bias as I'll be with them once again this May/June at the Nowhere Man Cafe in Brighton

My show, 'The House' is a mix of new characters and some ‘Made in Cumbria’ favourites such as Joy Hope. Page 40 of the brochure. The show is set on Derwent House on a secluded Derwent Island in Cumbria. The audience all come to visit and see what goes on behind closed doors. You'll also be able to purchase a original Joy Hope book so don't miss out. Get your tickets in advance by clicking here as last year my show completely sold out.

There is a brilliant line up at Lamb and you should definitely grab yourself a brochure listing all the shows. 

Here are my top favourites at Lamb Comedy all at The Nowhere Man Cafe

Gould & McCarthy: Death, Goths, Kittens & other cute things

Cheekykita: Somewhere in the Ether
(Surrealism and dance at it's best. You will cry laughing I promise)

Donal Coonan: Mr Grebe is taking your class today

I am sure I've missed some great shows out, but for now these ones are on my hit list for the fringe. Make sure you try something new, support local talent and if you like something make sure you tell your friends. 

It's not in the comedy section, but I'm also taking part in two of the Smut Slam shows throughout the fringe. Smutty story telling and a variety of performances. 

See all the comedy shows and other categories at https://www.brightonfringe.org/

When I'm not at Lamb Comedy you will no doubt find me with food and a green tea hanging out at The Warren.  Hope to see you at a Brighton Fringe show very soon!
