A cinematic double feature from two Fringe favourites.

Richard Brown brings horror in all its form in this 'multimedia show full of Jordan Peele worthy twists and turns' (British Comedy Guide)

Chris Thorburn: Cineman
Winner of the Funny Fringe Award, RVK Fringe 2023.
British Comedy Guide Recommended Show, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2023.

'There's not a comedy style Thorburn isn't adept at' (

'He's going to go far' (

As seen/heard on BBC's The Now Show, Breaking The News and Scot Squad.

Richard Brown: Horror Show
British Comedy Guide Recommended Show, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2022

'The territory where you feel 'I shouldn't be laughing at this, but i am' can be dangerous to play in, comedically, but it's where Richard lives.' (Scotsman)

'Brown is a breed that's increasingly rare in mainstream circles of comedy: a genuine left-wing perspective that imbues grim gags with humanism and empathy. [...] for the lucky few that share his misanthropic mindset, this is a comedy goldmine.' (List)

As seen/heard on BBC Scotland and BBC Sounds
