Sun 31st Jul - Sun 25th Jun 2017

A face-achingly funny night of alternative comedy where anything can happen and quite often does

The South West’s best and most absurd alternative comedy event, Nincompoop showcases the very best new ideas in comedy, clowning, fooling, slapstick, mime, audience participation, mischief and tomfoolery.

Previous Nincompoops have included a man pouring a can of spaghetti hoops over his head, a biscuit eating competition (a dog in the audience won), and incredible circus and acrobatics from a man with a broken leg!

Prepare to let your nincompoop loose as we get ready for an unpredictable and side-splitting night from the South West’s funniest and bravest people – and remember, sometimes the worst ideas are the best ones of all!

‘A ridiculously funny night, I laughed so much I’ve got a six pack!’ AUDIENCE MEMBER

‘Britain’s Got Talent meets Monty Python, you never know what you’re going to get next!’ AUDIENCE MEMBER
