Help get Knickers Theatre's to Camden and Edinburgh fringe festivals

What are we crowd funding for?

Knickers Theatre needs your help! We are hoping to go to both Camden and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals this summer with our show ‘ The Adventures of Buttman and Speedo’. Knickers Theatre puts a fresh, zany edge on sketch comedy and we want to get the show on the road inviting fringe festival go-ers in to a world of hilarity with our full-length show . 

Who are we?

Knickers Theatre was formed earlier this year, we are an all-female clown trio made up of East 15 World Performance students in our final year. We perform surrealist sketch comedy, and as a company we like to celebrate collaboration and revel in ridiculousness. 

our story

As a company we have set up comedy nights in Southend for alternative comics that are just starting out. These have been warmly received, with performers and audiences returning for more entertainment. Our aim to create a buzzing community of alternative comics in Southend who can collaborate on new projects. Alongside our events we what to showcase our comedy sketches; we have performed at scratch nights  but now we are eager to get our teeth into a full-length sketch show based around 3 of the world's worst superheroes. We want audiences to revel in the ridiculous with us!

Where will the money go?

We are hoping crowdfunding will help us raise the money needed to go to both fringes, raising the other half through the comedy nights we host. A breakdown on how the crowdfunded money will be spent:
