The Super Silent Secret of Cribbage

Wed 15th – Thu 16th Aug 2012


“The Super Silent Secret of Cribbage is a unique comedy show which attempts to raise awareness about an issue that doesn’t really exist.”





Cribbage Comedy


Join James Beckett and Mark Dixon as they share an extraordinarily bizarre secret with their audience, using partial theatre performance and partial traditional stand up comedy to deliver their message. Publicity will be presented in the form of health and safety style warning signs, asking the public to remain calm and not approach any Cribbage Boards. The show is presented in a similar manner to begin with but eventually develops into a peculiar shambles of logic and reasoning.

James Beckett is afflicted with a stammer and Mark Dixon is a diabetic, both of these aspects about each of the performers comes into play throughout the show.

The show was performed at the Leicester Comedy Festival twice, unfortunately this was not attended by any media. However positive feedback was received from audience members and fellow performers alike.
