Following a critically acclaimed run at last year’s Edinburgh Festival, Red B*stard will be coming to Komedia Bath on Thursday 15 May, for a special one-off show.


His Mission: Charm, Disarm, Shock and Seduce!


Hold on to your seats. America’s premiere bouffon is about to rip you a new one. Red B*stard is not a clown. He is not here to please you. He has come to make you surrender – to play the audience like the devil does a fiddle.

After 5-star reviews and sold out shows across North America, Europe and Australia, America’s premier bouffon will be coming to Komedia Bath on Thursday 15 May 2014. Experience the madness of Red B*stard as this exquisite monstrosity unleashes an absurdly sadistic master class where something interesting must happen every 10 seconds. His mission is simple; to charm, disarm, shock and seduce. His target is you!

Anything can happen as Red B*stard delicately leads you through a no-holds-barred theatrical masterclass demanding to know nothing less than the existential query, “Who the hell do you think you are?” Expect raw conversation, traps, rewards and catch-22’s – encouraging risk and discovery.

Lines will be crossed and laughs will be had in this interactive feast of biting wit, mischievous improvisation, and physical prowess. Anything can happen as Red B*stard lures the audience into raw conversation, provocations, traps, rewards, and catch 22’s – encouraging risk and personal discovery.

Lark Porter, venue manager at Komedia Bath spoke about how excited – and intrigued – she was about Red B*stard:

“Red B*stard was one of the ‘must see’ shows from last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, which delighted audiences and critics alike. I’ve got no idea what to expect from Red B*stard on the night, but I’m sure he’ll fulfil his mission to charm, disarm, shock and seduce!”

Red B*stard will be appearing at Komedia Bath on Thursday 15 May – Doors open at 7:00pm for an 8:00pm show. Tickets are priced at £15 in advance (£12.50 concessions), and are available to purchase from the Komedia Bath website, telephone booking line (0845 293 8480) or in person at Komedia Bath.


“Bizarrely hilarious, Red B*stard has to be seen to be believed. He cruelly assumes we love him and want to be like him, which, by the end of his set, turns out to be true.”Time Out NY

“Painfully funny, shocking and disarming. I haven’t laughed that much in a long time and I don’t think I’ve ever had that much fun as part of an audience!” British Theatre Guide

“5 Stars. One Funny Son of a B*tch!”Irish Theatre Magazine
