Saturday 7th May Brighton Fringe Line Up

Westdal and Hayward

Musical Comedy:  “Reminiscent of the late, great, Victoria Wood. The songs are genius.”

Beth Hayward and Freyja Westdal met on tour 25 years ago. Beth was Freyja’s understudy; a fact that is never allowed to be forgotten. They’ve supported Dean Friedman, performed & written with 4 Poofs and a Piano, & their 2019 Edinburgh debut sold out! Most recently seen along side comedy royalty at The Regent, Ipswich, with Griff Rhys Jones, Eddie Izzard, Clive Anderson, Stephen Fry, Johnny Vegas, and Ruthie Henshall.

Brighton Fringe Link: Westdal & Hayward: Royally Worked Up


Improvised Documentary: A cross between The Office and Best in Show.

An improvised comedy inspired by modern classic documentaries & mockumentaries like “Man on Wire” & “What We Do in the Shadows”. Starting with a simple audience suggestion, comedy duo 2Spoons Improv (Jenny Haufek and Elena Kerrigan) bring a hilarious Documentary to life before your eyes. Each performance is unique! From the performers behind Brighton Fringe sell-out “Bla Bla Land” & this year’s “Yes Anderson”. 

“One of the slickest, funniest improv shows I’ve seen. Engaging, extremely witty performers. Think ‘Best in Show’ meets ‘Strictly Ballroom’. An instant hit!” (Lela Tredwell, Pixelated)

Comedy Ventriloquism: “Demonstrates the magic of ventriloquism” ★★★★ (BN1 Magazine)

Ventriloquism as you’ve never seen before… a hilarious sell-out queer horror.
“Incredibly versatile” (Everyday Mag) rising star ventriloquist/clown, Lachlan Werner presents a surprising, rebellious and ridiculous hour of occult frights, where demonic voices come from every corner. Watch out, anyone could get puppeteered… by EVIL!

“A clear talent for his craft” (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
