Swan Song: A Comedy Showcase of Choreographed Death Throes

  • Sunday05/11/2017
    2:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Winter is approaching. The leaves are wilting. Entropy is waiting for us all. It’s time for Swan Song – where decay and rejuvenation go hand in hand. A mix of final performances of celebrated Fringe shows and celebrated performers creating new shows.

We are each of us dying and pregnant with opportunity. In our final moments our waters break and we are our true selves for one final breath. What an exciting premise for a comedy showcase.

*2:15pm – 3:05pm – Jordan Brookes – Violint (WIP)*
Gurning prince and word-of-mouth behemoth Jordan Brookes will be performing *Violint,
*a work in progress show which is currently heavily under wraps.

“Wildly entertaining stand-up that demolishes the conventions of comedy”
★★★★ The Guardian

*3:15 – 4:05 – Sam & Tom: Unrectifiable* 
Post-sketch revival. Sam & Tom, bellies full, bring their best and first show of skits and bits to the realm of darkness.
When a game of hide and seek goes askew, only slick sketch comedy can save the day. Or can it? Who knows, who cares? Sam & Tom both know and care, having written the show and then rehearsed it for a bit as well.

Hi… and wow! It’s me! Top lad and monolithic friend Sean Morley. Here I am with some of the biggest best jokes, really ready and raring to smash the gig, raise the roof, raze the venue and salt the Earth. I am Sean Morley and none may travel in my wake.
