Comedy

Stephanie Laing: Rudder

A comedy dance show about balance. Stephanie has a history of falling over a lot, accidentally kneeing herself in the face, and falling in love with total kn*bheads. In this show she uses a mixture of stand-up and dance to talk about bodies, sex, dancing, liking yourself, consent and healing. Also, there are cartoon bears and burlesque.

Alexis Gay: Unprofessional

'Hey... do you have a minute?' Bad from your boyfriend, worse from your boss. From New York-based stand-up, viral video comedian and former tech employee Alexis Gay, Unprofessional is a comedy debut about working (or, uh, not working) in tech, and one very specific 4pm meeting at a company called... Redacted (she may or may not have signed an NDA, sorry!). Directed by Fringe veteran Matt Gehring, this show explores making work your entire personality, going nowhere on the hedonic treadmill and worrying so much about your LinkedIn profile that it lands you at the hair doctor.

Ruby Carr: eBae

Deep dive into the weird and wonderful world of eBay. I’m obsessed with the thrill of an auction, it’s like shopping – but with a winner. I will show you the crème de la crème of the hidden worlds and the weird subcultures of eBay. I have bought it all. Is this because I’m a sucker for a good deal? A good story? Or is it my obsessive-compulsive disorder combined with my ADHD? You decide! I’ll take you down the rabbit hole, seeking validation for each progressively more unhinged purchase. "Ruby brings an infectious energy and steady stream of animated stories... injected with a deluge of sharp-witted reflections" - The Student Winner of Funny Women Comedy Writing Award 2022. “One to Watch” Funny Women Stage Award 2021 Finalist Amused Moose New Act of the Year 2019

A knight pulls a sword from a stone and, as the prophecy foretold – becomes king. No, not that king. Another one. Totally different one. This one is in love with his horse.

Danny Bhoy: Dear World...

Comedy

Danny Bhoy: Dear World...

This is the sequel to my 2014 show ‘Dear Epson... ’ My favourite ever show. It’s a hybrid of stand up and theatre, but really that just means I get to sit down for bits of it. I’ll be performing it in a giant upside-down purple cow, so that’s one immediate difference. It’s a late entry to this year’s Fringe, hence the lack of advertising and awkward start time. But, putting all that to one side, it should be good. ‘Unsurpassed storytelling’ - (The Age) 'One of the most sparkling wits in the world' - (The Montreal Gazette)
