Aaron Simmonds – Hot Wheels

Aaron gained a nickname based solely on being in a wheelchair. Understandably this upset him as there is much more to him than his disability. Annoyingly though it’s actually a really cool nickname. Discover the positive side of being disabled, from having a blue badge to sex in disabled toilets, meeting “Jesus” and everything in-between.

As seen on 'The Russell Howard Hour' (Sky 1), ‘The Stand-Up Sketch Show’ (ITV2), ‘Guessable’ (Comedy Central) and ‘Undeniable’ (Comedy Central).

John Robertson – The Dark Room

Welcome to the world’s only live-action, text-based adventure game. 'The Dark Room' is comedy and retro gaming fused into a deranged, interactive game show – it’s a choose your-own adventure, so choose it!

How do you play? The audience is trapped in a videogame with a sadistic end-of-level boss. Choose your options, survive the deadly challenges pitted by the improv comedy overlord John Robertson, and escape to win – or, be brutally murdered by the rest of the crowd! Will you: A) Find the light switch? B) Go north? C) Abandon hope? Filled with stand-up, appalling prizes and more audience chanting than you’d get at a protest – it’s a gut-busting immersive experience for everyone who steps into the room. Brutal, hilarious, innovative.
