“Destined to become one of the most talked about shows” Time Out
“Comedy in the Dark” is an innovative show which features top comedians performing in the dark. It’s the most fun you can have with the lights switched off. Since the show premiered in Leicester 2008 it has visited Edinburgh Fringe, London and Denmark. The show features a rolling line up and past acts have included Marcus Brigstocke, Dan Antopolski, Jon Richardson, Shappi Khorsandi, Reg D Hunter, Josie Long, Phil Nichol, Kevin Bridges, Lucy Porter, Sarah Millican, Andrew Ryan, Seann Walsh, Marcel, Lucont, and Patrick Monahan.
At “Comedy in the Dark”, the audience’s senses are heightened. In addition, the performers are forced to utilise entirely new skills as the gig is performed in the pitch black. Things look and sound very different in the dark.

“Wish I’d seen him sooner, I’ll be back to see him every year. Paul was my favourite show of the fringe” Stewart Lee
Big Difference Productions are proud to produce surreal street clown and fool time absurdist comedian Paul Currie’s, including appearnaces at Adelaide Fringe, Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival and Glasgow International Comedy Festival. The show was one of the big hits at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe. Paul has been seen on TV shows including BBC TV’s “Live At The Electric” and has been likened to Andy Kaufman and Spike Milligan. “Release the Baboons” promises to ‘ease and tease’ the inner fool in you and twist every preconception you have of what stand-up comedy has become and kick it square in the diddys.
