What's On

If you are looking for things that are 'off', such as:

  • The way certain classmates of Will Dalrymple were with him after he flew out of the closet.
  • A punnet of mushrooms nestled in Mark Bittlestone's disgusting fridge.
  • The lights in Will Penswick's flat because he can barely afford the rent and so will save money where you can.

Then you have come to the wrong place. This is a page on which you can learn more about the fruits (comedy shows, not apples) of our labours (boo Corbyn! (and Theresa May)) and book tickets to them.

Edinburgh Fringe

Space Doctor: Gilded Balloon, Wine Bar, 12.15pm

What's On

Prescription: space justice. Dosage: lethal! Time travel, space ships, scary monsters, evil aliens, sexy assistants, demented fans. It must be Space Doctor! After 40 years out in the wilderness, Britain's favourite TV time traveller is back... Space Doctor is a riotous and playful sci-fi parody, set at a fan convention, celebrating the fictional 1970s programme Space Doctor. TICKETS.

Pity Laughs: A Tale of Two Gays: Just the Tonic, Just Up The Stairs, 16:05, 2-26 August (not 14)

What's On

More perverted, more depressed, more jokes... the gays are back! 'The first true gem of the 2017 Fringe' ★★★★★ (BroadwayBaby.com). Mark's parents are dead. That's not a joke, though it is really funny. He and Will are also gay – in the modern sense of course, they're certainly not happy. Mark's stand-up about being a gay orphan meets explicit gay parody literotica from Will (think 50 Shades of Gay). Two gays, one orphan, absolutely no limits. 'Very well written... horrifyingly funny'★★★★ (EdFringeReview.com). TICKETS.

Will Penswick: Dank Verse: Laughing Horse Free Festival @ The Place, 16:15 2-16 August

What's On

He’s the world’s worst poet. Shame he doesn't know it. Sex, death, Christianity, Tim Henman, pigeons, divorce, Nazism, casseroles; no topic is too out there for Will Penswick. From one of the most enigmatic figures in modern literature, Dank Verse is a mixture of shocking (in both senses of the word; it’s awful) spoken word poetry, audience interaction and Penswick's views on life, love and more often than not, himself. Voice of a generation? Umm... 'A seriously funny show and he is a very sharp performer... You will be in for a comic treat' **** (PlaysToSee.com). TICKETS.
