Method vs Madness

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 "gourmet" deodorant to the regrettable social stigma of the toilet hoover, let him take you along for the ride.

Kyle's performance focuses around absurd and nihilistic ideas, a surreal twist on morality with an intense and angry-at-nothing attitude. Focusing on a philisophical side to comedy, language, and the human experiance, Kyle has a massively overinflated ego and contrasting self doubt. A poser of the highest calibre.


Emerson Young "First class comedic mind and the potential to go a very long way" - Steve Day

Kyle Bedder "Slightly surreal original thinker with an intense delivery" - Peter Fox
