1001 Normal Dysfunctional Families
  • Brighton Fringe

"Welcome to our uproarious stand-up comedy game show, where talented comedians engage in a playful duel using their childhood traumas as ammunition. You, the esteemed audience, hold the power to determine which comedian had the most hilariously challenging upbringing. The competition unfolds over three exhilarating rounds:Round 1:Prepare for a whirlwind of anecdotes from across the globe, as each comedian delivers a five-minute stand-up set recounting their family and childhood misadventures. From flunking medical exams in India to comical baguette beatings in France, these tales promise to leave you in stitches.Round 2:Our comedians face off in 1v1 improvised "family fight" scenes, drawing from provided scenarios containing a location and subject. Your votes will determine which contestants advance to the final round.Round 3:Witness an epic "Excuses Battle," as comedians think on their feet to devise the most inventive justifications for scenarios like, "Why didn't you take the trash out?" or "Why do you listen to Ariana Grande so much?"Join us for a night filled with laughter and camaraderie, as we celebrate the resilience and wit of these spirited performers."

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
