A week of events exploring mental health and comedy
A collaboration between Angel Comedy, Objectively Funny and Dave
23RD – 29TH MARCH 2021
On 23rd March 2021, the anniversary of the first lockdown, Angel Comedy and Objectively Funny will launch The Best Medicine Festival: a week of events exploring comedy and mental health, including online workshops, panels and performances.
The past 12 months have seen a skyrocketing mental health crisis. The pandemic has left many people facing grief, anxiety and the impact of isolation on a daily basis. The Best Medicine Festival sets out to celebrate the way in which comedy can destigmatise, normalise and raise awareness of mental health issues, while also offering much needed support for comedy industry professionals.

The mother of all confessional shows from the bestselling author and star of The Fast Show and Two Doors Down. Does My Mum Loom Big In This? is for everyone who’s had a mother or been a mother, featuring hair-raising hilarious true stories from Arabella’s dysfunctional childhood, her perilous career and her life as a single working mother. Devastatingly funny, excruciatingly honest and definitely embarrassing for all of Arabella’s relatives, not to mention herself, this is a helter-skelter tour of appalling – and appallingly funny – maternal behaviour.
New Zealand’s beloved sissy Chris Parker (as seen in Netflix’s The Breaker Upperers) is mincing his way over to Edinburgh with his award-winning Camp Binch. Winner of Best Show at NZ International Comedy Fest 2018, Camp Binch delivers a hilarious and cathartic retelling of growing up gay in conservative New Zealand. ‘He’s the one to watch that you’re probably already watching!’ (GayExpress.co.nz). ‘Leaves you inspired to make a difference’ (New Zealand Herald). Writer and star of New Zealand’s 7 Days, Jono and Ben, and Funny Girls.
Best Male Comedian winner, New Zealand Comedy Guild awards 2017. Best Show nominee, NZ International Comedy Festival 2017. Best Newcomer nominee, Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2016. It’s hard to believe, but Guy Montgomery hasn’t always been perfect. Embrace this rare opportunity to hear from someone unlearning the various blind spots that made him part of the problem before we were talking about it. ★★★★★ (KeepingUpWithNZ.com). ‘Intoxicating, enveloping and absurdly entertaining’ (NZ Herald). ‘A supremely gifted comic’ (Ruminator.co.nz).
Who are we? What are we doing here? Do you like me? And what are you saying behind my back? Let’s all get together and definitively find out if I’m the best or worst person you know. Those are the only options. Step into my existential crisis and get ready to laugh as I try and answer the eternal question: who am I?. After a sell-out ‘barnstorming debut’ (Fest) in 2018, New Zealand’s Alice Snedden returns to Edinburgh. ‘Alice Snedden should be listed as one of New Zealand’s top outputs’ ★★★★★ (EdFestMag).
Directed by Rose Matafeo.
Your best friend (and acclaimed stand-up) Jack Barry is worried about you. The world’s turned to shit and you haven’t been laughing enough. He’s going to roughly slap you around the face with his jokes and tell you to get a hold of yourself. Don’t worry – everything is going to be okay. As seen on The Russell Howard Hour and in Catastrophe, Cuckoo and Netflix’s Turn Up Charlie. Writer for Mock the Week. ‘The finest of British comedy… effortlessly endearing’ ★★★★★ (EdFestMag.com). ★★★★ (Sunday Times). ★★★★ (List). ★★★★ (Skinny).
New Zealand’s favourite comedy improv show Snort makes its way to Edinburgh for the first time! Cheeky, topical, and relentlessly silly, Snort sees NZ’s best young comedians (including Rose Matafeo, Guy Montgomery, Alice Snedden, Chris Parker) build an intricate hour of far-fetched, high-stakes comedy, entirely made up on the spot. ‘New Zealand’s coolest comedy improv group… the stuff of dreams’ (TheSpinoff.co.nz). ‘These are some New Zealanders we would be happy to claim as our own’ (SquirrelComedy.com).
Daniel Kitson (quite bald, now) will waste a good whack of his summer travelling between London, Bristol and Hebden Bridge to do work in progress stuff towards (primarily) A one off show in Regents Park Open Air Theatre and (secondarily) some other things in the future that may or may not actually happen.
This is some of that work in progress stuff.
He’ll have Gavin Osborn (full head of hair, as per) with him for certain dates around the end of June and the first week of July. Besides that, he will be entirely alone but for a cavalcade of hilarious new characters and the ghosts of his past.

John Robins: Work in Progress
Perrier Award Winner, Digital DJ and Internet-based quiz show host yells into a well.

Not really work in progress. Just something to do.
With “nothing” to “very little” in the way of material or ideas Daniel Kitson is getting out of the house, Staying loose, Ticking over, Keeping his eye in, Strengthening his core and putting some Shape in the Day. It will mainly be talking although there will almost certainly be some pauses and possibly a bit of absent minded chanting. He may also, introduce one or more others to participate in nascent skits or fill time with their own thoughts and feelings but will more than likely be alone on stage. Talking, pausing and chanting.
Less like the first steps on a creative journey and more like someone rummaging through cupboards and making a pile of stuff for the charity shop.
Tickets for these shows will be released on the day of the show at 12 pm (or 2 h prior to the show if it starts at 1 pm or earlier). Remaining and additional tickets will be sold on the door.
Sunday 15th July, 1-3 pm (cancelled)
