Eliott has never cared for sex. He enjoys doing people as much as he enjoys doing his taxes, yet for all his life it has led to nothing but ridicule. But in peculiarity lies comedy, and Simpson has it in spades. With tales of gender, stakes, queerness and cakes, Simpson aims to widen your eyes to the bizarre life of an asexual man trying to survive in a sex-obsessed world. So come along, keep on your thong, and enjoy the only show completely absent of dick jokes...okay there are some but they’re very intellectual. - “Absurd and Accessible” (The Norwich Radical) - "Weird as f**k" (Janey God...

A couple of years ago Andy Quirk got married, gave up his day job and moved from London to Glossop on the edge of the Peak District. He then turned 40 and has been adapting to the north, and his impending mid-life crisis, ever since. However, instead of buying a sports car and taking up bungee jumping he's written a show of musical parodies dealing with everything from late night retail excursions to unexpected incidents in farmers' fields. Andy also went unexpectedly “viral” (in a good way) earlier this year, gaining over 70,000 views on Youtube with his Dominic Cummings related parod...
