Sharon Em & James Johnson: Cynically Dead
  • Brighton Fringe

A show to make you think: "maybe Im not doing so badly after all..." Join rising stars of the international comedy circuit Sharon Em (IRL) and James Johnson (UK) as they wonder where its all going wrong. From disastrous treks across the desert to unwittingly spending ten days on a SAGA cruise: if youre looking for a show that makes you feel like youre on top of things, theyve got you covered. Fast-paced, story-based comedy at its finest."Sharon is a joy to watch and on the best up and coming acts in Europe. Aiden Killian, Magners International Comedy Festival AsiaJames Johnson shows genuine promise as his personality shines and his take on the subject matter strikes an uncompromising balance between niche and accessible. His idiosyncratic punchlines and fast, perfectly pitched delivery put one in mind of Tom Allen, but the quality of Johnsons writing needs to be acknowledged in its own right. Witty, centric and perfectly paced. (Ed Fringe Review)

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

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.
