A new stand up show from multi-award winning comedian Marcus Brigstocke. Snowflake, Nazi, Remoaner, Trot, Libtard, Brextremist, Feminazi, Piers Morgan… As we divide each other up into more and more unpleasant categories of evil, it is time to establish, once and for all, what is good and what is bad.

Who better to arbitrate in these challenging divisive times than Lucifer himself? The Devil no longer runs Hell day to day. He’s retired now, and plays Golf at Mar-a- Lago, but the Dark Lord is still on the board of The Underworld and attends a bi-annual meeting to advise on how to make eternal damnation sustainably hot, how to keep a thousand minions on a zero hours contract and what to do about Jacob Rees Mogg.

Marcus Brigstocke is a master of satirical comedy with an impressive list of TV credits including his role as team captain on Argumental (Dave), and host of The Late Edition and I’ve Never Seen Star Wars (BBC4). Other appearances include; Live At The Apollo (BBC1), Have I Got News For You (BBC1), Mock the Week (BBC2), QI (BBC2), Sorry I’ve Got No Head (BBC1), The Late Edition (BBC4), and the 11 O’Clock Show (Channel 4).

BBC Radio 4 has become somewhat of a second home to Marcus with regular appearances on I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, The Now Show and Just A Minute; he has also written and recorded three series and four specials of his hit show Giles Wemmbley-Hogg Goes Off. Most recently he co-wrote and co-starred in the new BBC Radio 4 sitcom The Wilsons Save The World.
