The Treason Show is Brighton's long running topical satirical comedy show, now in it's record-breaking 22nd year. Led by its award winning creator Mark Brailsford, this much loved show creates monthly topical comedy sketch shows written by a team of over 30 writers and starring the cream of Brighton's comedy performing talent.  


"Savegely funny - fantastically silly"  The GUARDIAN                                            

"Brighton is rightly very proud of this company" THE ARGUS

"This is a most impressive parade of topical songs and sketches, brilliantly written and exquisitely performed"  CHORTLE.COM

“Multi-talented performers-fast, witty, topical and surreal with a few million laughs” THE LATEST.

“The savagery of HIGNFY mixed saucy acting and gleeful music, these floorboard terrorists could give The Thick of It a run for their money.” SOURCE.


“Stand-out performances all round which quite simply brought the house down.” BROADWAY BABY
