1001 Normal Dysfunctional Families
  • Brighton Fringe

Welcome to the stand-up comedy game show where comedians will battle against each other using their childhood trauma. You, the audience, will decide which comedian had the worst parents. The game is structured in three rounds:Round 1Each comedian will do a five-minute stand-up set about their family and childhood misadventures so be prepared to witness stories from all around the world, ranging from failing a medical exam in India to being beaten with a baguette in France. Round 2There 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 you will decide who goes in the last roundRound 3The comedians will play an "Excuses Battle". There will be prepared scenarios such as "Why didn't you take the trash out?", "Why do you listen so much to Ariana Grande?" and the comedians will have to come up with the most creative excuses.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

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.

Theatre MAD
