Great Yorkshire Fringe presents: Iain MacDonald: Mispunderstood

More than double the jokes in the show than minutes spent in your seat. The 2018 UK Pun Championship finalist looks into why wordplay and one-liner gags are so mispunderstood. And when we say ‘looks into’, we mean telling an array of fantastic jokes!

Material featured in The Sun, The Daily Mirror, The Metro, BBC3, STV2, BBC Radio Scotland, TalkSPORT.

"Understands the importance of a clean, clear set up as well as the killer pun-chline" - Sally Jack, Sabotage Reviews
"A phone directory-sized pile of… better jokes" - Bruce Dessau, Beyond the Joke
"You have to admire the execution" - Chortle
"Scotland’s Prince of Puns" - BBC

Running Time 50 minutes

Age Advisory 14+

Tickets £7 available from the Great Yorkshire Fringe website.

Disabled Access  
Due to the ‘work in progress’ state of the Arts Barge at this year’s festival, we regret that wheelchair access down to the performance space is not possible.   

Through Riverside 2019 we aim to raise interest and funds to return in 2020 with full disabled access lift and toilet facilities. 

In the meantime, the gang-planks onto the barge are wide and wheelchair users are very welcome to enjoy the deck area. Our Riverside marquee (24th - 28th July) is free and accessible to all. Accessible toilet facilities in St. George’s Field car park, will be available during all Arts Barge Riverside Festival opening hours.
