Adding in stories about cocaine, mayonnaise, and other lethal substances, Candace concocts a playful takedown of society’s obsession with motherhood, the expectations of the nuclear fami...

"Do I like being gay or should I just get straight conversion therapy?" is the big, bold question that Mark attempts to answer over the course of 45 minutes. Mark was nominated for the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2022 and has gained a sizeable social media following (if that sort of thing interests you, which it shouldn't) with his skits about gay life and stereotypes.

This is one small set for Matt, one giant leap for Matt’s kind (i.e. science geeks). With humanity planning to return to the moon in 2025, this comedy show is about the Apollo missions, the last time man stepped foot on the moon (yes, it did happen!). This show is more about the journey than the destination. Telling the stories about the men who walked on the moon and how they did it. How did they get there? How did it make them feel? And how did a corned beef sandwich almost derail the whole endevour? All the key questions will be addressed. Matt Hobs returns to the Fringe after hosting St...

Conversational improvisation and carefully crafted comedic bits are intertwined in this collaborative show between Kyle Bedder and Emerson Young. Young and Bedder's comic personas are able to simultaneously compliment and contrast with each other, the thoughts of a deranged lunatic interspersing with those of an impulsive overthinker. The result is a chaotic mix of random tangents, crowd participation, and a diverse selection of comedic material. As an autistic dyspraxic queer kid, Sheffield-born Emerson could easily be described as processing the world around him somewhat oddly. From "g...
