7:30pm: Robyn Perkins
In a competitive world where confidence can outweigh skill, Robyn Perkins (Sydney Fringe 2019 Comedy Award Winner) looks what is confidence, how do we get it, and how does it affect performance? Is the ultimate confidence being ok with not winning? Through relatable personal anecdotes, engaging science, and interviews with pro-athletes, Robyn Perkins (4 stars, Chortle) explores how her VERY competitive nature has shaped her confidence, professionally and personally.
8:45pm: Lily Phillips: Smut
SMUT is the long anticipated show by newcomer Lily Phillips, that was going to be about feminism but is now going to be about her dog.
As seen on BBC3, ITV2 and All4, Lily is one of the most exciting new voices on the UK comedy scene. Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year Runner up, Funny Women FINALIST, Komedia New Act FINALIST, Max Turner FINALIST and part of the prestigious Pleasance Reserve, Lily is pumped to bring her debut hour of stand up comedy to the Hastings Fringe Comedy Festival. Join her hilarious journey from cheerleader to feminist, to dog mother.
- "Cheery disdain for the genteel and a bulletproof confidence" - (Chortle)
- "Charming and moderately obscene" - ★★★★ (The Scotsman)
- "Dry, feminist wit" - (The Evening Standard)
10pm: Tony Law: A Now Begin in Again
An aging, so-called comedian comes out the other end of the plague of Justinian while time traveling and learns absolutely nothing going into our most recent bollockstes. How (sic) is life about? Wtf was that? anyone dream in Zelda? There really is no point in any of it. Start what again? It was way shitter for way more people than me but that doesn’t stop me feeling sorry for myself. I’ve rotted. Really hadn’t handled that well until I harnessed the power of time travel. Work in pro - gress.
I’ll try to be funny for a minimum of an hour but I don’t really know what techniques I’ll use. Probably shouting and then quiet talking and a whole bunch of arseing and clowning. Thank you.
