What to expect…

Varjack & Simpson. Paula Varjack Dan Simpson

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.

Hosted by: Paula Varjack & Dan Simpson with Adrian Gillot (aka Ms. Samantha Mann)

Featured artists:

Katy Baird,

Karen Mcleod,

Travis Alabanza,

Rhys Hollis,

Rachel Mars

Tom Marshman

Whether you’re coming to WORST. DATE. EVER. solo or in a group, grab yourself a drink, find a seat, and laugh along as brilliant performers regale you with stories of dates-gone-wrong. Then it’s time to get involved, as hosts Varjack & Simpson encourage you to play silly party games and fun icebreakers.

You’ll meet loads of new people, share your own stories, and watch as they’re transformed into mini-performances by our acts!


Varjack & Simpson

Varjack & Simpson produce quirky creative content in the form of events, podcasts, and workshops. Their work fuses their backgrounds of spoken word, theatre, comedy, and filmmaking, and they have a love of high, low, and pop culture. They put on the worst-poet-wins, internationally touring The Anti-Slam, gleefully jumped on the panel show format with pop-meets-poetry mash-up show Poetry Goes Pop!, invented their own anti-dating show WORST. DATE. EVER., and have created Fail Better – a podcast all about artist failure and the hilariously awful.
