SAM SIMMONS: NOT A PEOPLE PERSON
Winner of Edinburgh Comedy Award & Melbourne Comedy Festival Award 2015
From the award-winning brain that brought you millionaire cats eating Viennetta, gypsy cuddles and nanna wanks, comes a brand spanking new hour of mind blending internal self-hatred, paranoia and comedy – because you have to put comedy in it.
“If you can imagine someone combining the rage of Basil Fawlty with the lunacy of Spike Milligan you are getting somewhere close to Simmons” Evening Standard
Carey Marx: hero of the people
Carey Marx is an unapologetic gagsmith. The jokes are short and sharp, often uncomfortably so, as any morality is sacrificed on the altar of quick laughs. And there’s no better way of guaranteeing a reaction than storming headlong into decidedly dodgy territory.
There’s plenty here for the connoisseur of comedy writing. The lines are efficient, original and potent – and rarely fail to blindside the audience.
“Marx’s slick delivery lends itself to clever verbal comedy.” The Scotsman
“Anecdotally debauched … But if his lines are frequently sick, they’re elegantly written, too, and there’s a childlike glee to his naughtiness.” The Herald
“Hilariously demented” Edinburgh Evening News
