Ed Aczels Foreign Policy

Ed Aczels Foreign Policy\' Date & Time: Thu 25 May, 10pm (doors 9.15pm) Tickets: 12.50 (10 conc.) Brighton Fringe participant standby ticket: 6 Age Recommendation: 16+ This is Eds third nationwide tour and this time Britains greatest living anti-comedian (The Guardian) wades head long into the thorny issue of Foreign Policy. Ever thought that maybe your relationship with your next-door neighbour is in fact a foreign policy? No? Well thats lesson number one from dead pan critics favourite Ed Aczel. If we all practised good manners, what a lovely world we would live in. Join Ed to see how this relates to the current global maelstrom, whatever that is. The show is a proper chance for the anti-comedian to run through the major foreign policy conundrums of our age, in a strictly, linear and geographical way. Hell also seek out a bit of personal foreign policy which everyone can relate to. When will China get a Blue Water Navy? And who cares? Can Russia ever get a warm water port and why Ukraine? What about North Korea then? And what can I really do for Britain If it cant do anything for me?

Brighton Fringe participant standby ticket: 6 Age Recommendation: 16+ Bosnian-Dutch artist Igor Vrebac (1986) draws inspiration from Instagram after workout selfies, Turkish wrestling and the idea of bromance, in his new physical performance Macho Macho to question the objectified mens world we are living in today. Part of Brighton Fringe Whats behind those Calvin Klein six packs? What does a billboard with beer drinking bearded giants on it tell us? When can a man show his vulnerable side? Macho Macho is a visually attractive duet between two young men trying to represent male beauty. They try to look good, be sexy and stay strong, but the competition that arises, brings them closer to each other and their emotions. The machos welcome you to their arena where they fight stereotypes about, with and for men. Since language is not a problem in this performance, it is even accessible for your queer chihuahua. Woof! A jury awarded the performance with the Dioraphte Best of Amsterdam Fringe 2016 award.
