Thea Jaffe, Donna Landy, Alex Trashley, Peter Innocente and Victoria Shortley say they have been kicking up a storm on various Zoom gigs across the globe. Now you can see them perform live and in person.

The MC of the hour-long show will be comedian and author Nik Coppin and looks set to be a fun filled hour, says Victoria.

“You may need to wash your hands after as no doubt Insanitized will make you feel dirty and grubby but fully satisfied.

“Having met through learning the comedy ropes through the Laughing Horses Comedy Classes, the Insanitized comedians decided to come together and put their acts together to create this one-hour show.

“Each of the comedians will put on ten minutes of their finest material for the audiences to enjoy for their festival debut.”

Jay Sodagar, comedian and Laughing Horse comedy teacher who started the five on their comedy journeys, said “These are the strongest new acts I have seen. They will be stars of the future.”

Insanitized will be performing over two weekends at the Brighton Fringe (October 2-4 and October 16-18) at The Caxton Arms.
