ABOUT THE SHOW

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Birds - we're Birds.

Birds is a smart, quick-fire comedy sketch show that plucks the feather of funny from the raven of wryness and tickles you under the armpit of wit. Expect sharp, snappy and surreal sketches. With added feathers.

Premiered in London in September 2017, Birds can regularly be seen at comedy nights across the capital, as well as fringe festivals around Europe. New show PLUCK will premiere at Brighton Fringe in May 2019.

For all the latest Birds news and upcoming gigs, find the sketch group on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

You can also email the group directly on wearebirdscomedy@gmail.com.
