Seaton Kay-Smith delivers an astonishing, off-the-wall performance in his show Where Why Where?, as he attempts to address some of the big questions of life such as: Where did we come from?, and Why are we here? Looking like, in his own words, a "demented buccaneer" he delivers (sometimes corny) rapid-fire one-liners to open the show. The second half moves into the bizarre and ridiculous and includes a poem, chilli-eating, fairytales and even a schizophrenic voiceover. It's as if one of the Marx brothers shagged Salvadore Dali!

Jazz Twemlow offers a perfect counterbalance to the zany opening performance in his stand-up show Earth, may contain traces of human. A thinking man's comic, this science-nerd loves to dissect human behaviour with intellectual-based arguments. Jazz is a likeable, self-deprecating comedian who explores science v tradition/religion, pseudo science, faith and superstition in his clever observations and comparisons. I left the show wanting more, particularly about his stories of living above a shop in Kings Cross!
