OUR NEXT SHOW – Jordan Brookes: Jordans Coming Early, York The Basement

Slide1

Dave’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2019 No tricks. No gimmicks. No plan. Just an hour in my company as we reach the end. Things will be over soon. We’re nearly there everyone! Great work. But before we go, I’m making one last attempt to find connection in the here and now, to snuffle out any remaining joy in this rapidly crumbling world, before it’s too late.

Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee 2017

Chortle Comedian’s Comedian Award Winner 2018

“There’s a whiff of Beckett to I’ve Got Nothing: all of us (Brookes included) are just waiting for this gangly Godot to leave. But when he finally does, after a dozen false endings, it’s a crying shame to see him go.” ★★★★★ Telegraph

“I’ve Got Nothing delivers one of the comic coups of this year’s Fringe.”
★★★★ Guardian

“It takes great skill to make an hour look this random, and yet keep hitting laughter buttons with precision.” ★★★★ Scotsman

“I’ve Got Nothing is stand-up’s answer to Waiting For Godot.” ★★★★ Chortle

OUR NEXT SHOW – Desiree Burch: Desiree’s Coming Early, York The Basement

Screen Shot 2019-09-30 at 17.42.44

Have you ever been caught in a loop?

OMG, seriously this is getting boring. Like, how many times do we have to try to fix this trash only to have to fix it again? When is stuff ever going to change? Does every revision require, like, a friggin revolution or something? Or does pushing too hard just wind up sending you right back to the beginning? And what if everything really is just the same thing forever?

Have you ever been caught in a loop?

Comedian and storyteller Desiree Burch (Netflix, Live at the Apollo, Radio 4) was born late, bloomed late, and generally has difficulty with the present moment. At a moment in history where decades of societal progress have swung right back around to authoritarianism and regression, Desiree embarks on a spiritual journey of mythically ridiculous proportions into the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, to figure out how she, and maybe all of us, have gotten here–and maybe, possibly, hopefully, how we fix the suckiness.

Have you ever been caught in a loop?

OMG, seriously.

The breakout star of Netflix’s Flinch, The Mash Report and Live At The Apollo (BBC).

As seen on Have I Got News For You, QI, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week and more!
