Birmingham Comedy Festival Free Half-Dayer Pt2 FREE
The second of two very special free half-dayers in two (almost) neighbouring venues in Birmingham city centre - Cherry Reds and The Victoria, in John Bright Street. All shows are FREE/ by donation/ Pay What You Want.
1.15pm - Foghorn Unscripted: What The Dickens? Improvised comedy Charles Dickens play. Cheer on our plucky heroes and help decide their fate as they struggle in their journey to find love and fortune, against adversity, poverty and wickedness. Join us in the sumptuous drawing rooms, murky streets and smoky taverns to meet filthy hags, absurd snobs and plucky ne'er-do-wells along the way.
2.30pm - Gareth Berliner: Crossroads Gareth is at a Crossroads after landing a role in Coronation Street and has started writing in the third person. He’ll be talking funny, looking funny and even doing magic, the likes of which you’ve never seen, literally. Why not come and see his show in the first person...
3.45pm - Apple-Knockers One hour of comedy argy-bargy from two ex-playboy models Danny Clives (Pleasance Comedy Reserve 2017) and Stu Woodings (Hot Water Comedy New Comedian 2015)
5pm - Round The Horne: Resuscitated Come and join the fun as we recreate a recording of the iconic 1960s radio comedy Round The Horne, with all your favourite characters (and more) making an appearance, including Ramblin' Syd Rumpo, Charles and Fiona, Bea Clissold, and Julian and Sandy. All these brought to you by the unforgettable Kenneth Williams et al, and master of ceremonies Kenneth Horne himself!
