Pick Of The Fringe

at The Brunswick, Hove

This event has been and gone.

Fourth World Promotions brings you Pick Of The Fringe, the best comedy, cabaret, theatre and live music previews from this year's Brighton Fringe Festival.

Featuring previews from:

Musical Q.U.E.E.F. (Queer, Exhausted and Extra Fabulous) by Real Good (Content) The world is extraordinarily sh*t right now, so fall into the camp cabaret cloister of fun that is Annie and Amy's 'Musical Q.U.E.E.F (Queer, Exhausted & Extra Fabulous)'. They've got chronic conditions and no inhibitions! Who knows what will happen? One thing is certain, afterwards the gals will go home and eat burritos in their pants and yes, we get extra guac. Think 'Bridget Jones:The Musical' for the smartphone age, buzzword, something something Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Amy might get her tits out. One is bigger than the other. But which one?

The Gay Sex Guide for Straight People
By Paul Moore
Remember gay sex education? Of course you don't! Join Soho Theatre Young Company's Paul Moore on this irreverent take of the gay sex ed class that never was. What is a douche, if not an insult? How do you recharge your power bottom? And why is any of that important? With Section 28 still casting its long shadow, and protests against LGBT+ education in Birmingham, there has never been a more important time to find out. Part of the team behind ITV2's 'The Stand-Up Sketch Show', Paul also got Tila Tequila thrown off 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The Music Of Trees by Geoff Robb Winner of the 2018 Brighton Fringe Live Music Award, Geoff Robb is back with new compositions and stories inspired by trees. Geoff is a master of the guitar and has performed to audiences all over the UK and Europe at venues ranging from Buckingham Palace to Glastonbury Festival. 'The Music of Trees' was a hit at last year's Edinburgh Fringe and blends music, storytelling and tree folklore. If you enjoy beautiful acoustic guitar music and are interested in trees, then don't miss this award-winning show.

Bex's Chainsaw Moussaka
By Rebekka Turner
There'll be no storytelling, no deep meaning about relationships, no moral messages near the end... but there might just be quickfire jokes, dark wordplay, oddball characters, off-the-wall impressions and - if you're lucky - some meaty layers between those aubergines. Rebekka is back in force from her last two Brighton Fringe appearances with her new high energy stand-up show full of nonsense, comic turns and lots of weird stuff you weren't expecting: guaranteed! Come with her on an unexpected whimsical journey as she tries to better fit in

A Kate Bush Cornucopia by Fourth World Promotions The magic of the music of Kate Bush is brought to life in this interactive, multimedia musical journey through the extensive back catalogue of Britain's most well-loved songstress.
Whether you're a super fan or just liked a couple of the hits, there is something for everyone in this high octane evening of homage! Featuring live music, video, dance and a KB quiz! Part parody, part tribute and full-blown celebration of all things Bush! KB fancy dress encouraged but not compulsory!

Every Wrong Direction
By Tracy Savage
Her father left when she was two years old, Tracy Savage has been searching for him ever since. But has she been looking for him in all the wrong places - in the arms of questionable men, at the bottom of a bottle, in the beautiful surroundings of Southern France? Every Wrong Direction is Tracy's story, sharing her struggles with motherhood, mental health, music and laundry in her part hilarious, part tragic and completely honest account of growing up with an absent father and choosing between repeating patterns and breaking the mould.

The Way Old Friends Do - A Musical Celebration Of Abba
By Alan Bonner
"I was five when I first heard them. Sat cross legged by record player in my shorts, with an ice pop melting down my chubby little legs. I was hooked." Acclaimed musician Alan Bonner and his band celebrate the music of ABBA in a heartfelt evening of acoustic re-workings of the supergroups' biggest hits and lesser known tracks. Come on a nostalgic journey through the music that helped him survive growing up, a young boy with big dreams and a penchant for disco and Swedish melancholy. Enjoy an evening of homage, cabaret, reflection and celebration set to some of the best pop songs ever written.

Rhythm Has Your Two Hips Moving
By Katrina Quinn
Join Katrina on a poetic pilgrimage through her twenties, accompanied by the dance moves she learned along the way. It's a love song to bodies; a celebration of the magic of dancefloors and a challenge to the stories we're often told as women and girls. There will probably be glow sticks.
