Brighton Fringe Broadway Bobby Award Winner Announced

Another stellar year of entertainment at Brighton Fringe has once again made choosing the winner of the coveted Broadway Bobby incredibly difficult. From monologues to improv, there was a fantastic range of five-star performances to choose from, proving beyond any doubt that Brighton Fringe is a major international hub for new talent and quality performances.

In a year when we all need a little more to smile about, their playful attitude saw sold-out shows filled to the brim with audience laughter.

Our eventual winner was described by our reviewer as "a delightful array of wonderful, wacky and original character sketches interjected with honest, eye-watering monologues" and we were thoroughly impressed by their "witty impersonations and sharp-tongued one liners".

A&E Comedy's Enter the Dragons provided a hilarious and unique take on the complexities of aging, with star performances from Emma Edwards and Abigail Dooley transforming the ridiculous into the sublime. In a year when we all need a little more to smile about, their playful attitude saw sold-out shows filled to the brim with audience laughter. A well deserved win for a show that brought unrelenting positivity and fun to the Fringe, without ever shying away from sensitive topics or sacrificing their sincerity.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
