Jim Beam Highball presents:
Birmingham Comedy Festival Free Half-Dayer: Part 1

The first of two very special free half-dayers in two (almost) neighbouring venues in Birmingham city centre - Cherry Reds and The Victoria, in John Bright Street. All shows are FREE/ by donation/ Pay What You Want.

CHERRY REDS

1.15pm - Aaron Twitchen: Can’t Catch A Rainbow
Never let anyone stop you. They can’t stop a rainbow if they can’t catch the end of it. A comedy show about friendship, love and wine from the Luisa Omielan tour support. @aarontwitchen

2.30pm - Lindsey Santoro: Looks Like A Boiled Egg
Join Northfield’s Princess for her debut hour(ish) as she recounts tales of misadventures in life for your amusement. Expect highbrow content which will include poems, pantomime style audience participation and down to earth storytelling all delivered in a daft, cheeky and very funny way. @hulseye

3.45pm - Ham and Clives: Bang You Out
Prepare to get banged out by the pairing of by Pleasance Comedy Reserve star Danny Clives and Cherrybomb Comedy resident host Tom Ham.@dannyclives @tomhamcomedy

5pm - Rik Carranza: Still A Fan
Rik is THE fan of Star Trek. But what happens when obsession becomes too much? A show for everyone who knows that fandom goes beyond merch', conventions and trivia. @rcarranza

Cherry Reds, 88-92 John Bright St, Birmingham B1 1BN


THE VICTORIA

1.15pm - Alex Hylton: Everybody’s Different and I’m The Same
Alex Hylton is unique. Just like everybody else. Join one of Huffington Post's Must See New Acts of the Edinburgh Fringe as he tries to find out what makes him so special in this hilarious new show. @AlexParisHylton

2.30pm - Good Kids
Cult sketch-comedy cowboys Good Kids descend for another hour of wicked-ass mayhem. Put your phone in your pocket and your giggle boots on cause this one's the big one. @goodkidscomedy

3.45pm - Jay Handley: White Jesus
Jay shares wrong-headed opinions on matters he should leave well alone. When not at the Fringe, he can be found arrogantly inflicting his world view on audiences at some of the country's best clubs. @JayWHandley

5pm - Round The Horne: Resuscitated
Come and join the fun for a recreation of a recording of the iconic 1960s radio comedy Round The Horne, with all your favourite characters (and more) making an appearance, including Ramblin' Syd Rumpo, Charles & Fiona, Bea Clissold, and Julian & Sandy.

Victoria, 48 John Bright St, Birmingham B1 1BN
