ARGH, I FORGOT TO POST ABOUT THIS!
Warning: May Contain Nuts in the Brighton Dome tomorrow! Hooray!
Comedy nights that give the audience both food for thought and more than enough laughs are rare, but this is one objective which Warning: May Contain Nuts certainly achieves.’ **** The Independent A taboo-busting evening of comedy, story and song featuring people who have experienced mental health issues and others who have not, yet. Compered by Brighton’s Angela Barnes, winner of BBC New Comedy Award 2011, for World Mental Health Day. Presented by arts charity Company Paradiso
Warning May Contain Nuts is a fantastic project that I was involved in two years ago. People like John Hegley run workshops for people with mental health problems who write comedy, songs, poetry and prose. It’s no bullshitty, guilt induced lip-service either; it’s talent, fun, creativity and balls. I performed in it two years ago (I couldn’t this year, alas, as I’ve had the busiest few months in memory) and I had a fantastic time even though I was so nervous I felt like I was floating above the stage.
Tickets are here and if you’re in Brighton, go!
