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, Zach Zucher of Stamptown tells us about their show, Zach & Viggo: Thunderflop, which they’ll be performing at The Warren.

Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
Truth be told, this is my least favourite way to bake a chocolate chip cookie, but there are legions of chocolate chip cookie fans out there who think this is The Way to make them.
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
2 1/4 cups of flour [304g – The Reviews Hub is based in the UK after all guys -and one of you is Norweigan!]
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup of butter [170g… ok, we give up. Conversions can be found online!]
1 cup of packed brown sugars
1 tsp vanilla
1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips (around 2 cups)
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
Cream your butter and sugar together until they are light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating in completely. Add the vanilla as well.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
