The Antics Joke Show Ft. The Cuckolds

After another sell-out show, Up The Antics return to their ancestral home of Cafe Kino to present a night jam-packed with local talent, including The Cuckolds, a brand new improv team made out of top performers, Up The Antics presenting the best of their sketches plus two of Bristol’s best stand-ups: Louise Leigh and Dorian Wainwright.

Improv from The Cuckolds: The cuckolds are a new improv team made up of former teachers, producers and artistic directors who have come together over their love of improv! In the words of Robbie Peter Williams, let them entertain you with their raucous scenes and hilarious take on “chicago-style” longform improv comedy.

Sketches from Up The Antics: After a wildly successful and critically acclaimed second Edinburgh Fringe Show “Loco-Motive”, Up The Antics have since been featured on BBC Radio Bristol, and the group regularly headline comedy events locally and further afield. They will be presenting the best of their sketches that were honed right here on the Kino stage.

Stand-up from Louise Leigh: Bristol-based mum and Stand Up for Cider Finalist 2016, Louise is coming to a stage near you, as soon as she’s de-loused her kids (again). She brings well-observed material about the dark side of parenting and navigating the choppy seas of middle age.

Dorian Wainwright: Straight from performing his solo show “The Picture of Dorian Wainwright” at the Bath Comedy Festival (and we mean straight from, he finishes in Bath at 4pm), Dorian is heading to the Antics stage to make us laugh!

Jessie Nixon: Taking MC duties for the evening is Jessie Nixon. Jessie entertained us hugely with her stand-up last September, and has been performing regularly in Bristol and further afield, so we can’t wait to have her as compere.
