An hour work in progress show of stand-up comedy as part of a festival
The Bristol Comedy Festival is here! Big names, new talent and local heroes - we've got the very best comedians at every level coming to Old Market to entertain you. Every show is a work in progress so come along and watch you favourite funny people figure out their shows in real time. All for only £6 a show!
Two brand new shows from regional darlings and sometime pals Eric Rushton (Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2020, So You Think Your Funny 2017 Finalist) and Good Kids (Leicester Comedy Festival Best Musical Show and Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Nominees 2020).
Good Kids: Work in Progress
A new show about (aptly) failure and (less aptly) success from a pair of wide-faced scrubs with hearts of gold and heads of sand. Prepare yourselves for songs, sketches and generous helpings of fifth-rate badinage.
Nominated - Leicester Comedy Festival Best Musical Show 2020

“They're stupid, daft, at times nonsensical. Funny yes but daft as brushes. Just how I love my comedy. Thank the stars they went into stand up and not health care.” (Johnny Vegas)
“A really fab little sketch act.” (Joe Lycett)
“It was mad, but it was hilarious.” (Tom Rosenthal)
Eric Rushton: I Had A Dream And You Were All In It
Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2020 Eric Rushton brings his highly-anticipated debut hour to 2NorthDown. Ever since he was a little boy, Eric has dreamt of being a commercially-viable stand-up comedian that could effortlessly entertain both you and your extended family. This is his chance to make that dream come true. Expect salty language, sweet facial expressions, and hand gestures with far too much oregano on them.
“Offbeat & sarcasm packed routines… held the gig in wonderful contempt.” (Chortle)
