The Antics Joke Show Ft. The Kagools

Summer is here at last, and instead of spending your evenings in the open air, picnicking or enjoying a frolick in the warm twilight, how about you stay inside and watch some top notch comedy? It’s on June 24th, no doubt it’ll be raining again by that point anyway, and you’ll be the one who has made weather-appropriate plans. But that’s not the only reason your friends will be jealous - you’ll also get to see some of Bristol’s fantastic comedic talent, including: 

Headline Act: 

**THE KAGOOLS**

The Kagools are a multi-award winning physical comedy double-act from the UK. Since their first full-length show in 2014, The Kagools have quickly gained fans far and wide with their unique brand of wordless (but far from silent) spontaneous, anarchic buffoonery. 

An equally sought-after headline act both at home and overseas, their critically acclaimed shows have toured extensively, with recent international appearances including Australia, Norway and Vietnam.

The Kagools have enjoyed successful runs at Leicester Comedy Festival, Buxton Fringe, Brighton Fringe, Bath Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe, Fringe World (Perth), Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Anywhere Festival (Brisbane); receiving rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. Their shows are an enchanting, bold, high-energy experience.

Sketches from: 

** UP THE ANTICS present: GEEK SALAD **

Up The Antics are proud to present a preview of their brand new sketch show ‘Geek Salad’. No beloved fantasy franchise, pop culture reference or sense of nerd nostalgia is safe from their brand of bizarre comedy. Established in 2014, this sketch and improvisational comedy group run the sell-out comedy night ‘The Antics Joke Show’, and release regular episodes of their original YouTube sketch-cast ‘Pipped at the Podcast’.
