Damp Knight Comedy: Dexter’s Labradoratory

Henry Travers Studio  |  13 – 14 January 2023

Improv du Fromage!

Is it a bird?
Is it a plane?
No! It’s a show name with a very niche reference to a great 90’s cartoon with our usual animal theme spliced in there. You should know by now that our titles have very little to do with the actual show but, hot damn! we love a bit of wordplay.
We’ve run the experiments and the test results are in – Damp Knight Comedy are back and slicker than ever in their 11th improvised comedy extravaganza – Dexter’s Labradoratory.

Comprising mainly of their signature brand of barking mad improvised comedy, paired with new filmed and live sketches, Damp Knight Comedy take elements of popular improv TV shows (such as Mock the Week, Fast and Loose & Whose Line Is It Anyway?), add a little surreal Monty Python flavour and hit fast-forward for a night of unforgettable, high-octane comedy, inspired entirely by the audience’s suggestions, guaranteed to get tails wagging.

Join the Damp Knights in their latest special at The Maltings; “Dexter’s Labradoratory” as they invent and scramble their way through impossible situations, ridiculous games and even the odd inconceivable musical number all for your entertainment, knowing that they genuinely do not have a pre-approved script or storyline to fall back on.

Old favourites such as Forward/Reverse and New Choice will be on offer as well as the ever growing arsenal of Damp Knight originally created games.

It’s a night of hilarity for all who attend, or an opportunity to really impress on a first date, by bringing them to a comedy evening and volunteering yourself for audience participation! (Audience Participation Not Mandatory).

Who Are Damp Knight Comedy?

Formed in 2015, creative comedy cronies ‘Damp Knight Comedy’ are a group of passionate funny peoples, performers and general ne’er-do-wells that know how to make audiences laugh but haven’t yet mastered writing a script. After many gigs round the North East and the South of Scotland, as well as several sell-out performances at The Maltings, they are back with their quick wits, stage chemistry and complete lack of shame.
You can also find them performing in a whole host of other productions on and off the stage, including wowing audiences with their singing and dancing in the spectacularly popular “Here Come the Girls” shows.
