Hotels near the Screamers
Screamers is Brighton's monthly gay comedy night, often featuring Tina C, the country & western drag star who introduces a star-studded bill.
The initial idea for Screamers was to borrow the format from the existing comedy club circuit and introduce it to an entertainment-hungry gay audience. The night is now one of the few succesful, regular gay comedy clubs in the UK.
The show was created by Chris Green, whose Tina C and musical Baroness Ida Barr characters are now revered by gay and non-gay audiences alike. In 1998 it was taken around the country as a large scale one-off event at the Leicester Comedy Festival, the Brighton festival and Manchester Mardi Gras.
Hosted by either Tina C, Ida Barr or a special guest - depending on whatever takes Chris's fancy! - Screamers' hallmark is its supportive, fun and irreverent atmosphere.
