My Dad Wrote A PornoMY DAD WROTE A PORNO: LIVE

Mon 4 June

Theatre Royal Brighton

Accompanied by friends James Cooper and Alice Levine, broadcasting producer Jamie Morton’s podcast based on finding his father writing erotica in the garden shed is a work of comedic genius, providing side-splittingly witty commentary of Rocky Flinstone’s shedmade erotica. The podcast, having been described as “a cultural phenomenon” by The Sunday Times, has garnered legions of adoring fans, having been downloaded over ten million times. This live adaptation is easily the hottest ticket in town.


 

TOM ALLEN

Tom Allen

Tue 5 June

Worthing Pavillion

Tom Allen, the sharply-dressed, wellspoken, disparagingly camp son of working-class Bromley, continues his Absolutely tour through the south coast. The Live At The Apollo star shows no sign of slowing down, having contributed to such successful shows as Mock The Week and 8 Out Of 10 Cats – Allen’s Absolutely live show is jam-packed with “riotous stuff – perfectly delivered!”

Nominated twice at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards for Best Show and Total Fringe Sell Out 2015-2017, the acclaimed comic is hitting Komedia this summer with her brand-new hour long show, One-Seventeen.

David BaddielDAVID BADDIEL

Sun 17 June

Theatre Royal Brighton

Baddiel’s My Family: Not The Sitcom is a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media, golf and gay cats. A massively disrespectful celebration of the lives of his late sex-mad mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. Come down and be offended on David’s behalf, whilst getting your fair share of rib-tickling comedy on a Sunday afternoon!
