Dreamgun: Film Reads

Unprepared comedians, rewritten film classics, endless jokes

Dreamgun and special guests read a different film script every night, rewritten with jokes and performed by unprepared comedians. Including Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and brand new reads of Superman and Dracula. 

'Hilarious live read-throughs of brilliantly rewritten film classics, a joy' (Dara Ó Briain).

'Merciless, hilarious... Consistently sharp, rapid-fire funny writing and crackling performances' ★★★★★ (Irish Times).
'Kept us in stitches and potentially destroyed a host of childhood memories' ★★★★★ (BroadwayBaby.com).

Come along on Sundays for Dreamgun Video special performances - a chance to laugh out loud to a fictional movie the Dreamgun group has written from scratch…

Alexis Gay: Unprofessional

'Hey... do you have a minute?' Bad from your boyfriend, worse from your boss. From New York-based stand-up, viral video comedian and former tech employee Alexis Gay, Unprofessional is a comedy debut about working (or, uh, not working) in tech, and one very specific 4pm meeting at a company called... Redacted (she may or may not have signed an NDA, sorry!). Directed by Fringe veteran Matt Gehring, this show explores making work your entire personality, going nowhere on the hedonic treadmill and worrying so much about your LinkedIn profile that it lands you at the hair doctor.

Ruby Carr: eBae

Deep dive into the weird and wonderful world of eBay. I’m obsessed with the thrill of an auction, it’s like shopping – but with a winner. I will show you the crème de la crème of the hidden worlds and the weird subcultures of eBay. I have bought it all. Is this because I’m a sucker for a good deal? A good story? Or is it my obsessive-compulsive disorder combined with my ADHD? You decide! I’ll take you down the rabbit hole, seeking validation for each progressively more unhinged purchase. "Ruby brings an infectious energy and steady stream of animated stories... injected with a deluge of sharp-witted reflections" - The Student Winner of Funny Women Comedy Writing Award 2022. “One to Watch” Funny Women Stage Award 2021 Finalist Amused Moose New Act of the Year 2019
