Matthew Highton – Insufficient Memory
  • West End

Matthew Highton invites you to come celebrate the small moments and memories that makes us who we are. Examining the central idea that we are all subject to chance and circumstance and using his Grans dementia (funnier than it sounds) as a spring board into the moments of life unique to each of us, Highton hilariously encourages us to celebrate life even in it's darkest corners and find the joy in living and the memories we create along the way.


'Insufficient Memory is a touching and funny show, drawing on the most formative moments of our lives, those moments when we don't know we're showing our vulnerability - something everyone can relate to in our own way.' - Chortle
'It's rare to see stand-up be as upbeat as Insufficient Memory' - Short Com
'Genuine guffaws and belly laughs from the crowd' - The Wee Review
'No politics, no doom, no gloom, and an uplifting message, 'Insufficient Memory' provides a hilarious respite from the difficulties of the modern world' - EdFringe Reviews

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
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
