DESIREE BURCH: DESIREE’S COMING EARLY (2019)
Filmed at Soho Theatre in November 2019 following a critically-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and directed by Sarah Chew.
Comedian and storyteller Desiree Burch (Netflix’s Too Hot To Handle and Flinch, The Mash Report and Live at the Apollo, BBC) was born late, bloomed late, and generally has difficulty with the present moment.
At a moment in recent history where decades of societal progress swung right back around to authoritarianism and disintegration, Desiree embarks on a spiritual journey of mythically ridiculous proportions into the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, to figure out how she, and all of us, have gotten here, and maybe, possibly, hopefully fix the suckiness for us all.

JORDAN BROOKES: BLEED (2018)
Filmed at Soho Theatre in November 2018, and created and developed by Jordan Brookes, Ciaran Clarke and Bríd Kirby.
Critically acclaimed and adored by his peers, Jordan is riding high. There’s been so much buzz about him. I’ve heard he does absurd stuff on stage? Yeah sort of, but it’s also very accessible. Apparently, he’s a really nice guy in real life too. Yeah he is. Very charming. Yes, very charming. Got a lot of time for him. Shall we give him a go then? Oh, absolutely not.
Praise for Bleed
“riskiest comic in the biz” ★★★★ Guardian
“a rictus-grinned latterday Lee Evans who constantly stares into the existential abyss” ★★★★ Beyond The Joke
“Awful, and hilarious” ★★★★★ One4Review
