Comedy for queers

Celeste is a comedian. Sue is a drag queen. Together they represent the ultimate union of cabaret and comedy

Basically the comedy scene can be way het, so we're creating a play time for funny queerness.

So whether you’re a straight man in chinos or a pansexual in mink, we have comedy for you. All welcome.

With guest performances by:
Mawaan Rizwan
'BBC Three favourite Mawaan Rizwan is a mischievous performer, with a no-holds-barred physicality and high-wattage charm’ (Guardian).
‘Masterful and supremely hilarious stupidity’ (
Mawaan Rizwan is one of the UK's most exciting comedians, combining physical clowning with absurdist gags, cultural commentary, and quite a lot of slut drops. He's hosted his own BBC documentary (How Gay Is Pakistan?), is a children's TV presenter, and won Youtube's 'Next Comic' award.
Matthew Floyd Jones
'A musical sprite with perfect comic timing'
'A key figure - eccentric and wildly talented' (The Independent)
As one half of Frisky and Mannish Matthew has been featured on BBC Radio 1, 2, 3, and 4, won Best Comedy at the Adelaide Fringe, sold out the Udderbelly and Shepherd's Bush Empire, and headlined The Lyric Theatre. As an individual artist he has appeared at Glastonbury with Miss Behave, Soho Theatre with Nina Conti, Shoreditch Town Hall with John Kearns, The Glory with Jonny Woo. His first solo show, created with Dickie Beau, was hailed as 'top theatre pick' by the Guardian, and his directing credits include Stay Another Song at the Young Vic, Into the Woods at the Oxford Playhouse, Merman at the Jermyn, and the Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated The Reunion.
Lolly Adefope
'Adefope is clearly going places' (Evening Standard)
'A thrilling experience' (The Guardian)
Named one of The Guardian's Rising Stars, Lolly's pitch perfect character comedy has earned her two Chortle Award nominations, a spot in the BBC Writersroom Comedy Programme and features on Plebs, Josh, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitles, and QI
Patrick Turpin
'Sharply funny and constantly laugh out loud' (Broadway Baby)
Patrick made his television debut in 2016 as a principle cast member in 4Music sketch show - Pop Sludge, having won acclaim earlier that year for his second solo live show - To Me, You Are Perfect. The show went on to receive an online release as part of new on-demand comedy platform Next Up.
