CAROLINE MABEY LEAVES THE ROOM SLOWLY (work in progress)
This year, Caroline Mabey’s husband/ boyfriend/ partner (whatever!) gave up his job as an accountant to train as a dog groomer. That’s ok! Financial security is overrated -who needs to eat anyway! Apart from possibly their five year old daughter? And is Mabey really cut out to be the breadwinner? It’s 2018, men and women are equal, but ... If being the breadwinner means following your dreams down whatever unseemly cul-de-sac they choose to lead you - including five Edinburgh Fringe solo shows resulting in various degrees of financial ruin (and critical acclaim)- then maybe she is. (She’s not). One of the most inventive comic voices in Britain, Caroline Mabey (“Oddball genius” -Chortle) is gloriously silly, with a quick, sharp wit. She has recently appeared on Comedy Central as part of their Performance Anxiety campaign, and in Josh Howie's Losing It on BBC Radio 4. She has also written for Radio 4's News Quiz. She is one half of double act the Two Stupids, with multi-award-winning comedian Michael Legge, and co-hosts theSelf Renovators podcast.

Throughout July from Thursday to Sunday we are lucky enough to have some amazing acts doing their Edinburgh Fringe Festival Previews for us here at The Secret Comedy Club. Brighton & Hove, Sussex. They are all just doing one show each so watch as many as you can because this line up is pretty awesome and you don't want to feel like you missed out after! You could literally watch all of these shows and it will still be cheaper than going all the way out to Edinburgh!
Doors 7pm / Start 8pm
With the caliber of acts we have on these shows will sell out fast so get your tickets while you can! (these are not Brighton based acts so you will not be able to see them often in Brighton, but you can now!)
BELOW YOU CAN FIND OUR FULL CALENDAR OF EDINBURGH PREVIEWS FOR THE MONTH. JUST CHOOSE THE SHOWS YOU WANT TO WATCH AND BOOK A TICKET FOR THAT DATE
