» Comedy Highlights: Off The Cuff/The Maydays

Off The Cuff promo p#50C026
Improvisational comedy can split an audience; as a genre you either love it or hate it. Luckily, here in Brighton we have some of the best improv groups around, so no one need be put off unnecessarily. In fact, everyone can be sure of a darn good time, whatever flavour of improvisation you’re after.

Two very different improv groups are performing this weekend, and both have been recognised by award panels over the years.

On Saturday you can catch Off The Cuff, mixing traditional improvising games you may remember from Who’s Line Is It Anyway? with some new ones you won’t know but that will make you howl with laughter. Asking for audience suggestions without provoking that ‘first day of school, compulsory participation’ feeling, this lot are friendly, professional and a great laugh – perfect for letting loose that weekly build up of work tension.

Sunday sees a performance by the satirical Maydays, an internationally acclaimed group who take the day’s newspaper and use it for inspiration, with scenes unfolding and songs springing up. If you want to join in at a later date, they even run workshops (see www.themaydays.co.uk for details).
Off The Cuff, Upstairs At Three And Ten, Saturday 30 January, 8pm, £7/5. The Maydays, Komedia, Sunday 31 January, 8pm, £7/5. Maydays

» Brighton Lights 31

Our new programme for thelatest.tv sees Juice FM presenter Guy Lloyd investigate all manner of things. He starts off with chart-topping band The Hoosiers who were mega-successful a couple of years ago, were dropped by their major label and have become fashionably independent. Their chart-topping album cost £1 million to record, their new album £100 and we reckon it's just as good. We have exclusive footage of this new record. Guy does crazy-golfing with them, checks out their sound-check and witnesses the fans' adoration of the band at Audio in Brighton. In future shows Guy will be doing waxing, Dot Cotton, air guitar and needs your suggestions for more crazy things (or people) to do. Send to bill@thelatest.co.uk

» Artists Open Houses

AOH Special: It’s Festival time in Brighton & Hove, which means the Artists Open Houses have opened their doors for another year! Maps of all the trails can be picked up across the city. We love nothing better than browsing and buying arts and crafts, and there is so much going on throughout May that we’ve made it easier by bringing the Artists Open Houses to you! We have 11 special programmes, featuring artists in their own houses. So here’s your chance to go ‘through the keyhole’ so to speak as we visit the artists in their own environment.
