Ray Badran – Everybody Loves Ray, Man
Australian comedian Ray Badran recently moved to the UK and is performing his debut Fringe show. A show about the big issues plaguing us all such as pockets, Subway sandwiches, fridges and more. Come and see why everybody loves Ray, man. Winner of the Best International Guest by the New Zealand Comedy Guild 2017, and as seen on Comedy Central in his series No Experience Necessary

‘His style definitely struck the right chord for the night, getting the entire crowd in hysterics’ (ArtsReview.com.au)
Flo & Joan: Before the Screaming Starts
In January, musical comedy sisters Flo & Joan watched the Bros documentary and saw a glimpse into their future; a lot of dog portraits and male pattern baldness. Anyway, following a sell-out run in 2018, they have a new hour of their dark and waggish songs to parade about the place.

‘Musical comedy hasn’t been in such safe hands for years’ (List). ***** (Sunday Post). ***** (ThreeWeeks). **** (Sunday Times). **** (Telegraph).
Annie McGrath: Shepherd
Deadpan comic Annie McGrath returns with her third stand-up show. Dark and charmingly offbeat, Annie tackles issues of male toxicity, consent and sheep herding. The big three! Dry jokes, silly anecdotes and some potentially serious underlying themes from a young(ish) comedian cynical beyond her years. Directed by Steve Hall (We Are Klang, The Russell Howard Hour). As seen on ITV2, BBC Three, Channel 4 and Sky Sports.
‘Smart and smutty’ (London Evening Standard). ‘Hilarious’ ***** (EdFringeReview.com). ‘Spot on comic timing… Delightfully dark’ **** (ThreeWeeks). ‘Ridiculously funny’ **** (TheEdinburghReporter.co.uk). Funny Women Awards finalist 2018.
