NO NEED TO BOOK IN ADVANCE - JUST BRING CHANGE FOR THE BUCKET AT THE END OF EACH SHOW
Simon Lucaks is not prepared
Simon Lucaks is very under prepared, and as of writing (13th May) has not written anything. Does that make him under prepared. Probably not, as "under prepared" suggests some level of preparation, and currently there is none.
Simon Lukacs is not prepared
Maybe this too is not quite accurate. He has thought of some ideas for some of his trademark "hilarious mad-cap characters taking a wry sideways glance at the absurdities of life, with wigs and swearing", and he has a vague idea for what he wants the show to be about, and he also has a title to go with this nebulous pool of half-thoughts... Fuzzy Felt Folk
But it may not be that coherent by the time he gives it his first try-out, and he may find that the whole barely-a-concept gets junked as soon as he starts writing. He may also run out of time and just do old material as he doesn't want to cancel on his friend Freddie. If this happens he will consider it the latest in a long line of minor personal failures
So to prepare you for each eventuality, here are three possible things you will see.

Briony Redman was shortlisted for the BAFTA Rocliffe Comedy Script Prize 2016 and previously performed as part of double act Surname & Surname “A vibrant and articulate sense of mischief” The Times. She is an experienced improviser who regularly performs as part of The Free Association (The FA). She is not so much a “glass half-full” kind of person as a “Hey, look at that glass, there’s something in it, amazing!” kind of person.

Phoebe Walsh – I'll have what she's having
We're born alone, we live with weird people we find on Gumtree, we die alone. Phoebe does some lovely jokes about the struggles of living, working and finding true love in this post-truth world. You'll either relate to what she's saying or feel glad that you don't. So, whoever you are, you should come. Phoebe's credits include writing for Vice and Elle magazine, sketches for C4 and E4, starring in BBC2's The Javone Prince Show and All4's Webscam.
'OMFG! I wanna be her!' (Malala).
***** (Gay Times).
