Briony Redman: Sketch Artist
1pm, Pleasance Courtyard THIS, Edinburgh Fringe 2018
1st to 27th August (not 11th) 2018
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Unless you're driving.
Comedy with alien invasions, military zumba, an attempted murder mystery? Stories, sketch and a who-almost-dunnit. Story-telling and characters from a BAFTA Rocliffe winning writer and one half of double act Surname & Surname.
Briony improvises regularly with the Free Association – the UK's 'equivalent to the professionalised improv of Chicago's Second City or UCB' (FestMag.co.uk) and guests with five-star This is Your Trial (The Mirror) and Chortle award-winning Austentatious.

Briony Redman: Theory of Positivity at Pleasance Courtyard
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 and one half of double act Surname & Surname. 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. Are you a positive person? Then you'll love this show. Are you a negative person? Then I doubt you'll have read this far.
"A unique & riotous series of interwoven sketches" **** Fringe Biscuit
"A talent and well worth spending an hour of your time with" **** DarkChat
