Saturday 5th August, Camden
A sea of heartbreak. Karaoke. Accusations and dirty laundry. Cake and champagne. Pill-popping and binge-drinking. An awkward turn on the stage by yours truly. Crazy wedding photos. Elina Alminas reprises her one woman show for the Camden Fringe 2017. LAURA is an absurd, painful, sympathetic satire of modern marriage, and keeps the audience on its toes throughout.

Intuitive Creatures are a four piece deity of comedic genius. Having come together from a previous collective stint at the London International School of Performing Arts (LISPA), and in fusion from a love of Jacques Lecoq, the multi-national quartet have embraced popular notions of physical theatre, as well as elements of metaphorical performance, to present Intuit This to the Camden Fringe.

Man-Go Unshaved are a new comedy troupe who describe themselves as the Good, the Bad and the Ugly of stand-up comedy.

The first thing you notice when arriving at any Bowjangles show, not just ‘On the Box’, is that a lot of people know each other. Although this might lead yo uto think that the troupe had filled the audience with their friends, this isn’t the case. Continue reading “On the Box at the Camden Fringe”
Psycho-geography is described as an approach to geography that emphasises ‘drifting’ in urban environments. Diana Cristina DeFex Sierra’s show is own story of ‘drifting’ from dangerous 1990s Medellin to post 9/11 America and finally over to dodgy suburbs of Paris. It’s an interesting story. But what you see on stage is mostly unnecessary. Continue reading “Psycho-geography: An Exercise to Remember My Future at the Camden Fringe”
Earlier this year, a show titled ‘Andrew and the Pony’ was due to be entered into the Brighton Fringe by two men: Andrew Bridge and a man who owned a pink pony costume.

29 year old Pete Dillon-Trenchard began his comedic journey in 2010. He won Comedy Café’s New Act of the Year 2012, was a finalist in Creek’s One to Watch Competition and this year he’s bringing his new show ‘it’s All Geek To Me’ to the Camden Fringe. What’s initially enjoyable about the show is Pete’s immense likeability. Continue reading “It’s All Geek To Me at the Camden Fringe”
‘Jesus Christ on roller-skates’ Gary (Adam Joselyn) sonically squeals in revelation. He plays a naïve criminal whose stolen space craft may indeed prove he is not as idiotic as his ‘friend’ Tyler (Cliff Chapman) and the audience are led to believe.
Sadly, it doesn’t.
