Next up is Komedia. Now, everyone on the circuit knows that this is an important one, so if any of you Brighton (or environs) folk would care to part with a few quids and get stuck in, we’ll make it more than worth your while. I mean, look! We’ve got Jules Oliver for starters, who’s won more comedy awards than I’ve had hot dinners and is surreally obsessed with Concorde. The plane, not the venue. Natch. Also, James Cook is doing a turn: his astonishing career has spanned NEMO, IAMX, The Mighty Boosh and a string of spectacular solo albums. Thoughtful, political and above all, effortlessly catchy – not to be missed. And yay! Kate Tym‘s going to hightail it over from St Leonards to join us once again. Her Tampon Tax Poem at BB2 Hastings went through the roof on the IE Vimeo account; she is one seriously funny lady.
I was told recently that after seeing Dan Laidler‘s wonderful mini-series Windy’s Farm at BB3, a colleague woke up in the middle of the night in deep distress at poor Windy’s plight. So we’ll be showing them all over again. The cruelty of art, the cruelty of art.
Finally, I am delighted to announce that my old pal Nick Hollywood will be doing a DJ set with his 15 year old son Joss. The Brighton-based godfather of electro-swing himself alongside the next generation of home-grown talent. This is worth more than the price of admission alone, so please do the right thing. The link below is for online bookings, but you can also contact Komedia direct at the number on the flyer. Looking forward to seeing you there x
