UP THE ANTICS
For the very first time, Bristol’s smash hit monthly comedy night is hitting the road (kind of). For one night only, we’ll be bringing the sellout ‘Antics Joke Show’ to the neighbouring city of BATH!
On May 17 at Komedia Arts Cafe, you can see a compilation of live and audio sketches, improv and stand-up comedy, all in … THE ANTICS JOKE SHOW: ON TOUR!
Our featured acts will be:
UP THE ANTICS present: GEEK SALAD
Up The Antics are proud to present a preview of their brand new sketch show ‘Geek Salad’. No beloved fantasy franchise, pop culture reference or sense of nerd nostalgia is safe from their brand of bizarre comedy. Established in 2014, this sketch and improvisational comedy group run the sell-out comedy night ‘The Antics Joke Show’, and release regular episodes of their original YouTube sketch-cast ‘Pipped at the Podcast’.
“Up The Antics […] are taking the city by storm” The Bristol Magazine
Bristol University’s Improv Society have become a rock in the improv scene in Bristol. Lovers of different improv styles and friends of the show, they will be bringing their quick wits and spontaneity to the Arts Cafe stage.
“Truly hilarious” Ed Fringe Review
We are also thrilled to be joined by some of the best stand-ups from the local area and further afield, including:
MacLeod began performing both Stand Up Comedy and Performance Poetry in his first year of university. Since then, he has decided to half his workload and just do both at the same time.
Described as “one to watch” by Raise the Bar Spoken Word, “f*cking fire” by Jordan Stevens (Rizzle Kicks) and “how did you get in my dressing room?” by Harry Baker, prepare to be unprepared for Connor MacLeod.
Rosalind Beeson is a new stand-up comedian from Stratford-Upon-Avon. She is a successful comedy writer who has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, as well as at various gigs in Bristol and Bath. Her set is sure to be a crowd-pleaser as she explores the pitfalls of starting your day and attending social events.
