1001 Normal Dysfunctional Families

A comedy game show where 4 comedians will battle each other using their childhood trauma and the audience will decide which one of them had the worst parents (Sold-out run Edinburgh Fringe 2023)

The show is structured in 3 rounds:

Round 1

5 minute stand-up set about family and childhood.

Round 2

There will be prepared scenarios containing "a location" and "a subject" and our comedians will have to improvise a "family fight(argue)" scene based on the notes. The battles will be 1v1 and the audience will decide who goes in the last round Round 3

Similar to the game "Scenes We'd like to see" as in Mock the Week but only with family topics.

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
