Briony Redman: Theory of Positivity

Sketch comedy in the phi-fi genre (philosophy fiction) 

Redman isn't so much a glass half full kind of person as a "Hey, look at that glass. It's got something in it!" kind of person. Story-telling and characters from a writer shortlisted for the BAFTA Rocliffe Comedy Script 2016 and one half of double act Surname & Surname.

"A vibrant and articulate sense of mischief" The Times

"Universal charm and wit" EdFestMag

"comedic storyteller with an inventive, goofy and utterly endearing nature" FringeBiscuit

All comedy. Some thought


Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017

Briony Redman: Theory of Positivity is on at 1pm at the Pleasance Courtyard THIS, 2nd to 28th August. A political thriller searching for pre-truths. A rom-com that asks: when does romance stop and harassment start? A monster movie from the monster's point of view. Three stories. One ending. Buy tickets HERE

'Effortlessly feel good' (The Skinny). "The best comedy performance we’d seen all year" (The Croydonist). Briony performs regularly with the Free Association – the UK's 'equivalent to the professionalised improv of Chicago's Second City or UCB' ( – and guests with five-star This is Your Trial (The Mirror) and award-winning Austentatious.
