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, In Bed With My Brother tell us about their show, We Are Ian, which they’ll be performing at Komedia.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
A hyper acid trip through the house movement in 1989, with loads of dancing, crazzzinneessss and bassy beats.
Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
We won the Brighton Fringe award for excellence at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe, which gave us the opportunity to take our show to Komedia this Brighton Fringe. We love Brighton. We’re very excited to be here
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
We’re on tour at the moment, so everything’s a bit all over the place. But we’ve been charging our shoes
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
Our show isn’t really like anything else you’ve probably ever seen before…we’ll definitely get you up on your feet
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
Fledgling Theatre’s show They Built It No One Came, is a very brilliant show that everyone should see. Also, Scratchworks The Great Train Robbery is going to be fantastic and funny.
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
Drink loads of water. And beer. And have at least one orange a day. And one beer.
If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
We Are Ian runs at Brighton Fringe 31 May – 1 June 2017
