Posey Mehta: I Am Not a Gorilla
3 - 29 August

Gloria is not a gorilla, but she is stuck in the zoo’s gorilla enclosure.

But before that, she’s going on a date.
This surreal, clowny character comedy about being othered and lonely marks the comedy debut of Posey Mehta, a Cambridge- and Gaulier-trained big fat idiot whose career high remains making out with Emma Corrin in a play.

BC:AD – Before Children: After Diapers
BC:AD – Before Children; After Diapers is a stand-up comedy show and one mad, brown mommy's take on how the definitions of words change before and during motherhood. This show is an invitation to anyone that finds themselves slightly overdrawn, mostly obscure and definitely needing the sound of another voice to reason with their own challenges – be it parenting, identity or the infinite void between where we find ourselves and where we see ourselves in our daytime dreams.
It will have everything. Games. Gifts. Possibly Satan. Probably cake. Join these horny little boys as they do whatever it takes to make their birthday dreams come true (think Oh, Hello meets those twins from The Shining meets My Super Sweet 16). This is their perverted fantasy and today is the day they finally get everything they've ever wanted. Real-life lovers turned identical twin boys, Creepy Boys is a bizarre new comedy with just a splash of the occult.
That's right – Criminal is back. Each night, four comedians are tasked with solving a horrible murder. One of them is a detective; the other three are suspects. Who did the deed? Produced by Ralph Jones and Joel Gatehouse, with previous guests including Deborah Frances-White, Mike Wozniak and Rachel Parris, Criminal promises you a night of chaos, death and giggles. Strap in.
Enter the Vortex
Memories collide and intersect; worlds collapse into themselves in the blink of an eye; Jools Holland... is there, for some reason. Is it Inception on a smaller budget? If you say so. Bring some toast: your brain's about to get scrambled.
