1001 Normal Dysfunctional Families

Embark on a wildly entertaining journey with our stand-up comedy game show, where comedians go head-to-head, turning childhood traumas into comedic gold.

As the audience, you decide which comedian had the most hilarious and challenging upbringing .

The competition has 3 rounds.

Round 1: Comedians do a five-minute stand-up set, regaling you with tales of their family and childhood escapades.

Round 2: Witness the comedians' improvisational prowess as they reenact a family argument scene.

Round 3: Based on the Improv game "Scenes we'd like to see", with family topics, it will be a list of scenarios and the comedians will have to come up with as many one-line suggestions as possible.

Examples of Scenarios:

"What can you say to your parents but not to your drug dealer ? "

"Describe your family life with a movie title"

Join us for a magical night where we will laugh about our childhood traumas and if you are brave enough, bring your family with you. (Brighton Fringe 2023 Sell-Out)
