Sian Davies: This Charming Man
  • Brighton Fringe

Sian loves men. But she has a toxic relationship with all her male role models.The men she has admired throughout her life have done nothing but let her down. But why did she idolise them in the first place? And what do you do when your role models let you down?An exploration of masculinity, gender and identity from a self-identifying butch woman who has an unhealthy obsession with The Smiths.Join award-winning comedian Sian Davies, a cross between Peter Kay and Zoe Lyons (Beyond the Joke), as she develops her next hour of comedy. Winner of Edinburgh Comedy Award Panel Prize for Best in Class in 2022, Best Debut Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival 2020, runner up Funny Women Stage Award 2019 and winner of Hilarity Bites Best New Act 2018. Sian is working class and queer, and fiercely proud of belonging to both communities.A very funny observational stand-up... imagine a queer Peter Kay with more emotional literacy and a quiff like young Morrissey.

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.
