Rob Auton: The Eyes Open and Shut Show (Work in Progress)

This is a show about eyes when they are open and eyes when they are shut. With this show I wanted to explore what I could do to myself and others with language when eyes are open and when they are shut. After writing ten shows on specific themes including the colour yellow in The Yellow Show, the sky in The Sky Show and myself in The Rob Auton Show I wanted to think about what makes me open my eyes and what makes me shut my eyes. The show will involve the audience shutting their eyes and opening their eyes at specific points.

Rob has performed his unique brand of comedy on The Russell Howard Hour (Sky One) and on Rob Delaney’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central). The latter set went viral on Facebook with 4.7m views and counting.

"A genuine original."

Huge Davies: Work in Progress

Huge (8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown and Roast Battle) has been a professional musical comedian for five years and so far performed no music or jokes. This is the music show.

Huge was nominated for the Edinburgh Best Newcomer Award for his first show The Carpark and his second show Whodunnit received multiple five star reviews. Combining his confident on stage presence, dark humour, surreal material and his one-of-kind customised keyboard, Huge has quickly risen to become one the most unique acts in the UK.
