Previously at the ICA - Events
1 Feb 2013 – 15 Feb 2013
Imagine Later with Jools Holland but featuring all the performance arts, live, earlier and hosted by someone taller and less likely to play boogie-woogie piano. Got that? You are picturing the Will Gompertz Fringe. Yes it's a hair gag but it's also 90 minutes of surprising, inspiring, hilarious, musical, bizarre and staggering takes on a given theme. This week it's MONEY.
There are three stages: Stand Up (for comedy, poetry and mini-lectures), Music (for our house band and guest artists) and Performance (cabaret, performance art, magic, sketch etc.).
Still can't picture it? Then imagine a Latitude-type festival in concentrated form. Swap Suffolk for the ICA Theatre, July for February, portaloos for actual toilets and that's about the size of it. A festival in one room in one night.
Directed by comedy director, script-editor and tutor Chris Head, this is the festival to get you out of the winter blues!
Friday 15 February: Money
So, Roll up! Roll Up! for The Will Gompertz Fringe – the purest, most distilled event in the world. Drinks and food available throughout.
