Deage Paxton: Impersonable – Free

A debut show from an established act on the UK circuit. His acerbic wit, use of non-sequitur jokes and unique brand of dark humour has resulted in a show compiled of jokes not for the faint of heart.

This year we have two entry methods: Free & Unticketed or Pay What You Can
Free & Unticketed: Entry to a show is first-come, first served at the venue - just turn up and then donate to the show in the collection at the end.
Pay What You Can: For these shows you can book a ticket to guarantee entry and choose your price from the Fringe Box Office, up to 30 mins before a show. After that all remaining space is free at the venue on a first-come, first-served bases. Donations for walk-ins at the end of the show.

News and Reviews for this Show

August 15, 2023    The Scotsman

The room is absolutely rammed, which is marvellous to see, and pretty much none of the audience opt to hear clean jokes (we are asked which we prefer). Deage is, he says, from Newcastle, a middle child and, as if that wasn't bad enough, a ginger. His show is packed with nice one-liners, kicking off with opera, cotton buds and masturbating in the shower, just to get us warmed up before getting stuck in to Poundland, weed and a fearless dig at fat children. He is an engaging presence and the comic energy here never flags, which is impressive, in a Fringe where so many have opted for the much less labour-intensive monologue about their inner selves. Paxton offers up Wetherspoons and yoga, algorithms and women's football, orgasmic births (yes, this is a thing) and aliens. This is a straightforward, fun hour of funny, and there is less of that about than you might think. Paxton does not give anyone a hard time to get his laughs except perhaps Biggie Smalls. And he is already Notorious. Impressively, pretty much the entire room has come along because they were flyered by the man himself. And I don't think any one of us is disappointed.
