- DAVID TRENT – WHOOOAR!!!
CHARITY CHUCKLE Komedia Studio, 44-47 Gardner St, Brighton.
Charity Chuckle has been putting on quality comedy nights for the last four years, but the packed ‘Digital’ show at the Komedia was probably the biggest technical challenge yet. Specially curated for the Brighton Digital Festival, every comic would have a different laptop set-up. And there was an animated stand-up section!
First act, NATHAN PENLINGTON, told of his journey into “the very analogue” Choose Your Own Adventure books. Gripped, no-one wanted his set to end with shouts of “MORE” confirming why he won an EDINBURGH FRINGE FIRST at this year’s festival. JOSEPH MORPURGO broke the fourth wall with his Twitter improvements and an apple, while PHIL LUCAS delivered dancing and pop star memes with aplomb (not a plum). LAURIE ROWAN’s animated short film Fuzzy Banter had everyone chuckling and headliner, Edinburgh-prize-nominee DAVID TRENT, shocked and delighted with multimedia jams. Hilariously conducted – or compered, with a glowstick – by MICHAEL FABBRI, the audience left the Komedia smiling and thoroughly entertained, many promising to come back to Charity Chuckle next month.
It was a very funny and original night. As Tom Bailey, organiser of this year’s BDF2013, said: “They were all really great – and much more interesting than you often get in the more stag & hen type stand-up nights”.
And everyone got a glowstick bracelet to wear home!
See more photos of the night in the gallery section, and come along to the next Charity Chuckle to see great new stand-up and support the local community at the same time.
Next show: Tuesday 22 October 2013, 8pm
