A festival favourite, the always popular Sketch Night returns with an evening of short shorts and live comedy, hosted by Gem Carmella (Short Sighted Cinema). This year, we’re packing belly laughs with a ventriloquist’s dummy with a life of its own, the smear test from hell, a lesson in, er, conceptual art appreciation, and, of course, the ubiquitous toilet humour sketch.

Interspersed with live comedy acts, we welcome on stage Ken Chung, winner of Dave’s Joke Of The Fringe 2017 at last year’s Edinburgh, and Short & Curly, comprising of Rebecca Shorrocks (Short) and Paul F Taylor (Curly), bringing with them props, one-liners and an inhuman amount of energy.

FILM PROGRAMME:
ROGER (Dir. Brendan Cleaves, 8 mins)
Stephen (Seann Walsh) arrives home after six months abroad to discover his best friend Roy (John Bradley) has replaced him with a ventriloquist's dummy called Roger.

BAD NEWS (Alicia MacDonald, 3 mins)
When some people are unable to switch off from work, it can be fairly noticeable. We see one particular group of friends who are suffering more than most and hear how it has even started affecting one of the group's home life.

HYPER JUMP (Tom Webb, 5 mins)
If you're going to be taking part in one of history's iconic moments, you'd better prepare a speech.

CABIN PRESSURE (Matthew Lee, 3 mins)
A safety and regulations obsessive is forced to revaluate things when a routine flight runs into difficulties.

GET STAFFED! (Pier Van Tijn, 3 mins)
Why waste money on things when you could hire a whole army of staff instead?

SMEAR (Kate Herron, 5 mins)
Chloe thinks she's just going in for a routine pap-smear. Things do not go as planned.

TOO SOON? (Natalie Neagle / Sally Samad, 3 mins)
In this short, we see an awkward encounter in a supermarket car park as this comedy duo take a satirical swipe at imperialism.

HEALTH KICK (Dipak Patel, 3 mins)
Two colleagues discuss fitness regimes, as a humble brag escalates into all out war.

THE HOTEL AFFAIR (Jacqueline Pepall, 2 mins)
When a guest in the penthouse seduces a bellboy, a case of mistaken identity threatens to ruin the mood…

CUSTOM LOVE (Jonathan Kebe, 9 mins)
He’s the perfect man taking her on the perfect date. She’s just waiting for the perfect question.

DREAM CATCHER (Stuart Laws, 5 mins)
A girl, frightened to go to sleep is provided with a dream catcher by her mother to save her from nightmares.

MASTERPIECE (Runyararo Mapfumo, 7 mins)
A group of young men try to interpret their friend's art so they can save face and show support.

OUIJA SEX (Mondo Ghulam, 5 mins)
When a heart-broken man tries to contact his deceased girlfriend, he discovers she wants more than just a chat…

VANDELLA DAY (John McCourt, 1 min)
Welcome To The Apocalypse.

FLUSHED (Grace June Cleere, 5 mins)
Two women with opposing ideas on what is 'public' and what is 'private' lose their shit in very different ways.
