This May, critically acclaimed comedian Eliott Simpson will perform his Sell-out show “(A)sexy and I Know it” at the Brighton Fringe from May 6th-8th! This show is the UK’s first and so far only stand-up comedy show to be exclusively about Asexuality.
As the UK’s most well known asexual comedian, Eliott has never cared for sex. He enjoys doing people as much as he enjoys doing his taxes (not at all), yet for all his life it has led to nothing but ridicule. But in peculiarity lies comedy, and Simpson has it in spades. With tales of gender, stakes, queerness and cakes, Simpson aims to widen your eyes to the bizarre life of an asexual man living in a sex-obsessed world. So come along, keep on your thong, and enjoy the only show completely absent of dick jokes…okay there are some but they’re very intellectual I swear…
As seen on BBC Scotland and heard on BBC Radio Norfolk & Suffolk, Simpson is one of the most accomplished and unique queer acts on the UK circuit, having recently been a semi-finalist for Scottish Comedian of the Year 2021!
His show touches upon all aspects of this still relatively obscure and under-represented sexual minority, offering exposure and awareness to an oft discussed corner of the LGBT+ community.
