Continuing our run of very silly experimental comedy nights, described as “totally stupid and so much fun” by Time Out, Laugh Out London proudly presents presents: Sixteen Breakfasts, an unofficial tribute to John Hughes.

Laugh Out London present a live performance of a brand new film from a screenwriter Ron Hughes* who claims to be John’s nephew. Ron has written an original piece with some familiar themes and recognisable characters.

Expect stroppy teenagers, wise-ass uncles and paint-cans falling from the top of the stairs on string.

Marny Godden: “fantastically realised slice of surreal character comedy” – **** Broadway Baby
Matt Tedford: Star of Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho
Ali Brice: “Joyously bonkers … the perfect level of exaggerated oddness” – **** Chortle

Twitter star Adam received huge acclaim for his debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe this year, which was the perfect showcase for his silly, energetic humour.

“One to watch…” -Time Out

WEIRDOS FUNDRAISER

An amazing show to raise funds for our final Christmas Pantomime in December.

Featuring:

✮ ✯ Lou Sanders ✮ ✯
✮ ✯ Sam Simmons ✮ ✯
✮ ✯ Patrick Cahill ✮ ✯
✮ ✯ A greatest hits set from the Weirdos gang.✮ ✯

Why are you raising funds? What does my money do?
Every year we put on a big show for charity. Over the last 2 years we have raised £8,000 for Great Ormond Street. Its a very expensive show and so that all the money can go to charity we need to try and cover some of the production costs – paint / props / costumes – John Kearn’s rider etc.

In association with Laugh Out London and Heroes of Fringe

JOZ NORRIS

Wed 29th Oct. 7:30pm. Tickets: FREE! Time Out’s Critic’s Choice for this week!

JOZ NORRIS ‘AWKWARD PROPHET’

Joz Norris does his gut-bustingly brilliant 2014 Edinburgh show one more time, for free this time so everybody who didn’t want to pay for it gets a chance to come and see it.

Essentially the story of an asexual boy who would desperately like to be in a relationship but has no idea why, except that he once saw it in a Richard Curtis film.

“He is a born entertainer, but also a great comedy writer…Norris is clearly a young comic going places.” – Chortle

“A potentially massive future comedy star.” – The Herald
