The Fringe Show

The Maydays present: The Fringe Show

Taking the Brighton Fringe brochure as their inspiration, The Maydays create an entirely new show every night.

Each evening, the audience are asked to choose performances and events from the fringe guide. Tours, workshops, comedy, cabaret, theatre or circus – The Maydays will take any offer from the hat and give it their own special twist.

Do you wonder what this year’s Chekhovian Mime Act or Bavarian Heavy Metal Band will look like? These improvisers will create their own version with The Maydays award-winning formula! These seasoned comedy professionals create completely improvised scenes, songs and sketches, leading to a second-half inspired entirely by one event or show from the Fringe. A great way to find out what’s on at the fringe and a great night out!

‘Sometimes inspired, always great, occasional laceratingly funny, and at times deeply affecting.’ ***** Fringe Guru
