Two superb shows, two glorious double acts that we saw lots up at the Edinburgh Fringe. Comedians from both also performed at Camden Comedy Club’s *Lunchtime Laughs* so they’ve got our stamp of approval!

FOXDOG STUDIOS LTD
One of our favourite shows from the Edinburgh Fringe – we saw it five times! Digital, geeky, funny – basically a bit of everything! They had an outstanding Edinburgh Fringe this year and now they’re in Camden!

Seven facts that’ll change how you think about IT rock’n’roll… It is music and computer programming. It is by a real IT consultancy, who recently had a large corporation tax bill. They are recouping losses with this lecture series on PAT testing. Audiences connect their phones via our on stage wifi. Play our games, music, animatronic dogs.

‘If Flight of the Conchords met Moss from the IT Crowd, and they had two illegitimate love children that they then left them in a room unsupervised – this would be the result’ – Broadway Baby
‘Ridiculously good fun and mightily impressive. It’s funny, too…if you don’t enjoy their brand of techy musical comedy, there must be something wrong with your hardware’ – Time Out

EXPECT THE UNEXPORCUPINE
2015 New Act of the Year Michael Stranney and Laughing Horse New Act of the Year Runner Up Olaf Falafel bring you an hour of fun-filled silly comedy. With a mixture of off-beat characters, one-liners, outlandish tales and an irrelevant spinning wheel, they invite you into their wholly unique worlds.

‘A delight’ – Chortle
‘both ambitious and very smart’ – EdFest Mag

WHAT HAS THE NEWS EVER DONE FOR ME?

Monday 2nd November. Time: 8:00pm (Doors open 7:30pm) Tickets: £5.00/£4.00

Everyone’s favourite topical news show for people who mean to read the newspapers. We love the news like we love our partners, it’s changeable, you never know whats going to happen and has the capacity to go mental and ruin our lives.

Every month three top comedians bring in a story they think is the most important from that weeks news and have to persuade you the audience why theirs is the one you should care about.

Will it be the refugee crisis, David Cameron’s colourful university love life, or Kanye for PM- You decide. We don’t think we’re dumbing down the news so much, as dumbing it up!

Hosted by Grainne Maguire. This month’s guest acts are Ben Partridge, Ivo Graham, Gabi Hutchenson Crouch.
