Are you sick of swiping left and right? Or filling out pointless online questionnaires only to message back and forth with people you are not even sure you want to meet irl? Maybe you are sick of dating altogether? Maybe you are seeing someone but would like to make new friends? Well the makers of The Anti-Slam know that the best way to bond is over failure.

WORST. DATE. EVER is a night of performances about dates gone wrong, mixed up with silly games for people of all relationship statuses, sexualities and genders. Featuring a fantastic line up of comedians, theatre makers, spoken word and performance artists! This will be a very special (Anti-) Valentine Edition!

About the company

Varjack & Simpson are co-hosting co-producing partnership that produce quirky content in the form of events, podcasts, and workshops.

Fusing our backgrounds of theatre, spoken word, comedy, and filmmaking, with a love of culture high and low, we put on entertaining events that performers love to be involved in, and audiences love to watch.

Having successfully instigated a terrible poetry takeover internationally with The Anti-Slam,  gleefully jumped on the panel show format with Poetry Goes Pop, and interviewed artists about artistic failure on our podcast Fail Better, our latest event, Worst Date Ever, celebrates those dates that were terrible at time, but very funny when shared with friends later in a pub.

We can’t tell you what we have planned next, but be sure that whatever it is is, it will probably be silly – and definitely be fun.
