The Antics Joke Show Ft. Degrees of Error

Ah, April Fool’s Day -- that time of year when comedians of every ilk come together for pranks of both a juvenile and meticulously coordinated variety. But instead of silly string and fake heads in your fridge, we’re back with another fantastic Antics Joke Show, bursting with superb Bristolian talent. Of course, we will also be strategically placing whoopie cushions in certain seats around the venue, because no matter how old you get, they are still hilarious. But are we joking? Will you be inclined to check your seat before you sit down, just in case? Who knows -- incessant paranoia is part of the April Fool’s fun after all!

Your acts for the evening’s festivities will be: 

** Improv: DEGREES OF ERROR ** 

Degrees of Error are an improvised theatre company based in Bristol, focused on producing improvised dramatic and comedic work. Degrees are the resident theatre company of the Bristol Improv Theatre, where they rehearse and perform regularly. Degrees of Error was originally founded in 2010 as Only Humour but rebranded in 2013 to feature at the first ever Bristol Improv Theatre Festival. 

** Sketches: UP THE ANTICS ** 

Resident group Up the Antics have been wowing audiences with their unique mix of short, punchy sketches and audio shorts. Make sure not to miss them, as they will be continuing to showcase brand new material for their upcoming debut show “Geek Salad”. 

** Stand-up: DAVID HOARE ** 

David Hoare is a musical comedian, delivering sharp, observational and sometimes silly songs with wit and flair. Topics range from pregnant men to Barry Scott, James Cameron to the effects of drinking. One of We Are Cult's "10 Stand-Up Comics To Watch in 2017."

** Stand-up: ELLEN WADDELL ** 

Ellen Waddell has been performing comedy for two years. Her first one-person show, “Jean Luc Picard and Me,” an autobiographical retelling of a Star Trek obsession that left her trapped in a delicious fantasy world, sold out each of its runs in Bristol, before moving onto The Canvas in London and the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. 

“Entertaining and delightful”
-- Broadway Baby

“Simultaneously raw and sweet, painfully frank and ultimately bursting with the joy of connecting.”
-- The Skinny
