1.15pm - Foghorn Unscripted: An Improvised Murder
An improvised comedy murder mystery based on audience suggestions. Stories, laughter … and death!
With no script and no plot, Foghorn Unscripted and the audience create a classic whodunnit. Who dies horribly? Who is the murderer? What awful secrets are revealed? The audience are the puppet masters, and the fate of the characters are in your hands for this fun-filled grisly romp. Foghorn Unscripted is an established group of comedy improvisers from Birmingham. We perform stories, using nothing but suggestions from the audience and the power of our own imaginations. / Foghorn

A show with jokes, and about jokes.
As a boy, Craig was constantly told, "It's all a joke to you." In this new stand-up show, he shows how he's made this his strategy for dealing with both the idiocies and delights of daily life, while at the same time dealing with those who seem convinced he doesn't get his own punchlines. / Craig
