The best of Brighton comedy in Dec 2018 & Jan 2019 (and Feb!)

THE TREASON SHOW
Thurs 27 – Mon 31 Dec
Horatio’s, Palace Pier Brighton
A bigger Brighton & Hove institution than hipsters and bad coffee shops, The Treason Show has been pulling apart the news for well over a decade. A furious mix of satirical songs, razor sharp sketches and outright stillness, they’re again teaming up with another of the city’s icons – Brighton Palace Pier. The last 12 months have been unusually stable, full of sensible decisions and selfless acts. Not really, the world’s going to hell in a M&S basket. You know it’s going to be a bumper edition of this award-winning comedy show. There’re also special shows at Lewes’ White Hart Hotel on Sat 22 Dec and Shoreham’s Ropetackle on NYE, so there’s plenty of chances to shake away those winter blues with a good laugh.

Sweet Werks
Lava Elastic offers a platform to talent often considered ‘problematic’ or ‘niche’. Some neurodivergent performers struggle navigating the mainstream circuit, so much exceptional talent gets overlooked. Redressing this imbalance is Rebekka Turner (right), William Stone, Hannah Brackenbury, Sha Wylie and your
effervescent host, Sarah Saeed.

Thu 31 Jan – Sun 3 Fe
Brighton Dome
The comedian, writer, television and radio producer, political activist and (perhaps most importantly) Bake Off co-host will be coming to the Brighton Dome with her one-woman comedy show, National Trevor. The British-Danish comic has received a plethora of accolades, an OBE amongst them, and Toksvig shows no signs of slowing down just yet.

Fri 1 Feb
Brighton Dome
The critically-acclaimed comic, host of BBC Two’s The Mash Report, and regular on the likes of Mock the Week, Have I Got News for You and QI, Nish Kumar is the comedian that makes being intelligent cool (well, kind of). His razor-sharp wit has secured him two Edinburgh Fringe Comedy Award nominations that testify to his captivating performances.
