WITH JON BRITTAIN, MARTHA WATSON ALLPRESS & ESTHER MANITO

JON BRITTAIN – I THINK I AM A GOOD DOG
Henry has been locked out in garden. Apparently he has been “bad”. He doesn’t understand what he did wrong, or indeed what “bad” even means, in fact there’s a lot that Henry doesn’t understand. Life is very complicated when you’re a dog. A bittersweet monologue about life, death, loyalty and bones written and performed by Olivier Award-winner Jon Brittain.

MARTHA WATSON ALLPRESS – OH HOW I’VE MISSED YOU MY LOVE
Once a month (not once a month) but once a month, Martha Watson Allpress gets her period. This is why it’s messy.  A monologue musing on Weight Watchers and Beyonce…kind of.

ESTHER MANITO
An Arab Essex girl who will challenge every single preconception of what that means. Esther has supported Alan Davies, Shappi Khorsandi, Sindhu Vee, Jason Mansford, Jo Brand and Al Murray. As seen on ITV’s Stand Up Sketch Show and heard on: BBC sounds Russel Kane’s Evil Genius, co-hosting Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack Unplugged, CBBC Bitesize Parents, Drunk Women Solving Crime, Russell Kane’s Boys Don’t Cry and BBC New Comedy Awards 2016-19.

Winner of Best Show at Leicester Comedy Festival 2021

“Last time I reviewed Esther I described her as ‘the opposite of predictable’ and ‘sublime’ and the same applies now” ComedytoWatch
