FRIDAY 14TH JUNE 2019 8.00PM – ROBYN PERKINS – MATING SELECTION 9.30PM – WINTER FOENANDER – A JERK MATING SELECTION – ROBYN PERKINS On August 14, 2018, Robyn Perkins (4 Stars, Voice Magazine) participated in a dating show in front of a live audience. Her experience led to her exploring human morality and the social constructs of present day dating, with a scientific twist. Robyn is known for her “confident, charming and relatable personality” (Edinburgh Festivals), which allows her to delve into complex and uncomfortable territory. How do social constructs change how we date? What is the role of morality in attraction? These questions are explored as she shares the story of the most uncomfortable moment she has ever had on stage. “Hilariously unapologetic, 10,000 Decisions mixes science with the trivia of life, offering a unique twist on your average stand-up hour.” ★★★★ EdFest Magazine “For a brain-tickling evening, let the talented (and very clever) @robynHperkins teach you the neuroscienctific implications of losing your girlfriend’s gerbils. Brilliantly witty with some fantastic stories along the way. Highly recommend.” ★★★★ Fringe Biscuit “Robyn Perkins blends science, comedy and a little hint of philosophy into an excellent show.” ★★★★ Scots Reviewer A JERK – WINTER FOENANDER A stand-up comedy show about the absurdity of trying to fit in when you clearly don’t belong anywhere. The story is a warning that the thoughts you have while on your own aren’t always the right ones. All is told with jokes anecdotes and energy. This will be the first full performance of this show, although parts will have been previewed elsewhere at various clubs around the country before Shaftesbury Fringe. Winter Foenander is a comedian of Irish-Sri Lankan origin, living in Hemel Hempstead. He has a collection of 39 elephant statues, and one Girraffe from someone who didn’t get the memo. He has been travelling the world performing stand up comedy since 2012. His interactive show is dotted with jokes and anecdotes throughout. “Charming yet cheeky, a crowd pleaser” (Iszi Lawrence, Dead Z List Podcast). “A Superb Act, with Fresh Funny Material” (Paul Tingey, Stand and Deliver Comedy Club). “Bloody Funny” (Mark Dolan, Balls of Steel) “If you want a lively evening with lots of talent – he’s your man” (Peter Barron, Macclesfield Cricket Club) “Pace, energy, delivery… a machine gun of improvisation blended exquisitely with well honed material” (Luton Comedy Club) “Winter creates an instant rapport with the audience as he opens his world up for them to walk around in. A great combination of the absurd and the everyday performed with energy and passion. Looking forward to seeing him again soon.” (Honest Comedy)
