Thankyou very much.
I always used to go to the Fringe.
I no longer can.
I have profound physical disabilities.
But you allow me to feel like I'm there.
Really. It's a unique joy to me.
Very, very special.
Please feel free to increase your price if it subsides comedy like this.
You've made a difference

Sketch comedy has been such a significant part of the comedy world for the longest time, from Monty Python’s Flying Circus to Saturday Night Live. And at NextUp, we LOVE IT! 

So here are some of our favourite sketch comedy shows!

Tarot: Cautionary Tales

Come learn life lessons from five people still doing sketch comedy in their thirties, by which they mean it’s a drain on their bank accounts and they don’t talk to their parents about it.

Made up of on-stage members Adam Drake, Ed Easton and Kath Hughes who write it together with off-stage members Ben Rowse and Kiri Pritchard-McLean.

Norris and Parker: Burn The Witch

Debauched sketch comedy for lovers of the strange, the sordid, the musical and the dark. Burn the Witch stands firmly against any idiotic mutters of the ‘excessive’ push of women’s rights. Delightfully sinful, Katie Norris & Sinead Parker utilise catsuits, mullet wigs and songs to weave multiple narratives with strangely relatable characters, primarily set in the miserable, sex-witch overrun Phallus Ridge.

Britney: Friends and Nothing More

Fresh from their universally adored BBC Three pilot, Charly Clive and Ellen Robertson make their long-awaited return to the Fringe with a sketch show about love. But which of these two girls will you fancy more? 'Ferociously funny' ***** ( 'Sweet, smart, refreshingly silly' (Guardian). 'Charming, joyous and offbeat' **** ( 'Bloody brilliant' **** ( A recent rejection from a writing job: 'their friendship is so powerful, and so long-lasting, it might unbalance the room'. As seen on BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three and Channel 4, in spite of everything.


These are just some of the fantastic sketch shows we have on NextUp! What are some of your favourites?

Hello, about a week ago I posted a query asking why the Samsung tv next up app had been retired, especially since Samsung is the largest selling tv brand by some margin. A couple of people responded to it but there was no official response. I went to look today and see that the post has been deleted. There was nothing rude offensive or even contentious within it. There are other posts about different tv apps in this same community that haven’t been deleted. I’d be grateful for an explanation why it was deleted, especially if it was due to breaking some policy or guidelines.
