Miserable Malcolm, The Brighton Fringe and a few stops on the way ....

Miserable Malcolm has finally got himself up off the floor after the success of Miserable Poets’ Cafe on 23rd April (many thanks to all who came and read their sorrowing stanzas)

and after coming joint second at the Cheltenham Poetry Festival’s Breaking Bard Slam (picture on twitter here).

He will be performing his show “Graveside Manner” at the Brighton Fringe on Sunday 17th May (6.30pm) and Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st May (both at 12.30pm) at Otherplace at the Basement, 24 Kensington Street, Brighton BN1 4AJ.
And where in the premises of Otherplace in the Basement will he be performing his show of despair? 
Why, in THE PIT, of course!
Tickets for all three performances can be booked here: 
(Miserable Malcolm will also be making a few short and gloomy appearances at the Tinkerbox, a glamorous horsebox parked round the back of the Spiegeltent on the Fridays and Saturdays of those weekends, between 6 and 8pm.)

But, before all that, Miserable Malcolm will be performing his show one more time in Stroud, in a double-bill of Brighton Fringe-bound shows with the marvellous Jonny Fluffypunk in his one-man show “Man Up, Jonny Fluffypunk”.
The Stroud double-bill is at Black Book Cafe, 2 Nelson Street, Stroud, on Tuesday 12th May.  The first show starts at 8pm prompt, and tickets are a mere five pounds.

And in the even nearer future, I will be reading my short story “The Vampires in the Basement” at the launch of the Stroud Short Stories Anthology (a highly-recommended tome comprising around 98% of the stories from the nine events).  This will be taking place in the Ale House on John Street in Stroud, starting at on Friday 8th May. More details here:
And, finally, in the further future Miserable Malcolm will be taking “Graveside Manner” to the Barnstaple Fringe Theatre Festival (25th-28th June) but that is another story for another gloomy day ...
