This time, it's your chance to catch the Best Of The Fest from 2015 featuring last year’s Best New Act Runner Up Bosh & Babbs and Audience Choice award winners Laughing Stock. A supreme double-bill featuring two rising stars of the sketch scene whose talents have them standing out from the crowd as ones to watch. Well, this is your chance.
- Laughing Stock
Gender-balanced comedy awesome foursome, Laughing Stock are the hot new kids on the block, relevant yet irreverent, edgy yet smooth. They’re funny. They’re silly. They’re everything a comedy troupe should be and more.
Hailing from the Oxford School of Drama and comprised of Phoebe Higson, Rhys Bevan, Lewis Doherty and Arabella Gibbins, they weave comedy sketches with a rich tapestry of music, dance, mime, puppetry and song in order to tell detailed and intricate tales of irreverence and irregularity. Highly physical, character-based humour and musical story telling included.
