Back by popular demand for 2017, our Brighton Bites series offer short, witty and slightly tongue-in-cheek insights into shows performing at England’s largest arts festival. Hopefully, they will whet your appetite to try something new at this year’s Brighton Fringe.
Here, Joseph & Stacy tell us about their show, Joseph & Stacy: Live! , which they’ll be performing at Sweet Waterfront 2.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
A mishmash of sketches ranging from the super silly to the downright dark.
Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
Brighton is the hub of British Art and we don’t have to travel far to get here.
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
A 7-month zen retreat with Buddhist monkeys. They don’t impart as much wisdom as monks, but they’re significantly cheaper and share their bananas (unlike that selfish Dalai Lama)
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
Our show is so fun and easy going, you don’t need to think too hard, or know too much or care about anything. Or anybody.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
I Am Beast by Sparkle & Dark. Superheroes, puppets and scenes that break your heart. The full shebang!
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
You don’t need to get bangs, that’s not what fringe means.
If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
Chocolate. Sweet, dark and not suitable for the lactose intolerant.
