Brighton Fringe 2022


Brighton Fringe Show Announcement 

Extra Topping Comedy Showcase

by Simon Topping

The southeast’s best alternative comedy performers gathered in one place.

After a triumphant sold out first night, this newly established monthly showcase brings together the very best of comedy, outside of traditional stand-up, three acts per time, over the first three Fridays and Saturdays of the Fringe. 

Hosted by Simon Topping, comedy writer, performer and Brighton improv comedy veteran, the hour is packed full with two thirds funny women, plus a few silly men too and sees a list of award winning comedy artistes, crowd pleasers and local legends take to the stage. 

Guests include: Julia Masli (Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality at Edinburgh Fringe 2019), Siblings (Reviews Hub “Best in Show” at Brighton Fringe 2021),  The SugarCoated Sisters (Best Newcomer at Music Comedy Awards 2022), Selena Mersey (Music Comedy Award Finalist 2021), Dyball and Kerr (“High Class character comedy” – The Observer), the cream of the Brighton improv comedy scene, and many more.  

With such a combination of talent on show, “Extra Topping” is a must-see event at the Brighton Fringe.
