BRIGHTON BITES: Gein’s Family Giftshop – Trophy Collection

Our Brighton Bites series offers short, witty and slightly tongue-in-cheek insights into the offerings at England’s largest arts festival. Gein’s Family Giftshop tell us about their show Trophy Collection, which they’re performing at Komedia, Brighton.


How would you describe your show in one sentence?

Sketches that aren’t for everyone but might be for you, tickets available.

Is this your first visit to Brighton Fringe, if so what interesting tales have you been told about what to expect?

We once made a 10-hour round trip for the Fringe. We learnt that Brighton is lovely and that long drives make Ed hallucinate.

How has the show developed on the way to Brighton?

Mainly through arguing in the car.

How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?


What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?

We perform with a dead-eyed look in our eyes. Makes for an unsettling and intense experience.

What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own!)?

There’s a bunch: Pat Cahill Panjandrum, Previews from Harriet Dyer, Will Duggan, Jonny Pelham. Steer clear of James Meehan’s show. He’s a rotten egg*

*That’s what we call our friends who we’re in a sketch group with.

If your show was a flavour of Brighton Rock, what would it be?
