“He is a very sharp performer…you will be in for a comic treat” ★★★★ - Plays To See. Phresh from runs at London's Et Cetera Theatre and the Brighton Fringe, Will Penswick is a performance poet, performance artist (Turner Prize Winner 1994) and political activist, although some people have come to find his poetry amusing. “Slightly dense” – University Times.


Back at Edinburgh for another year, Bittlestone and Dalrymple are returning with their unique brand of stand-up-cum-narrative gay comedy. Jam-packed with brand new material, Pity Laughs: A Tale Of Two Gays is back to scandalise, shock, and test the limits of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe one more time. 

“Horrifyingly funny… not for the faint-hearted.” EdFringe Review ★★★★

“Never have I seen such a stylish middle finger pointed at homophobia and general misfortune.” Broadway Baby ★★★★★
