Kill Your Darlings!
The Bill Murray, Islington, United Kingdom
This cabaret night features top artists showcasing the offcuts that never made it into their finished shows. Routines they loved but never worked. We look at what hits the cutting room floor and why.
£7 to reserve a seat or Pay What You Want at the venue.
Welcome To Kill Your Darlings!
We are a new experimental cabaret night featuring a top selection of artists, from comedians and poets to musicians and drag artists, hosted by comedian Matt Hoss and musician Tsarzi.
The unique idea behind Kill Your Darlings is that acts get to showcase the oddities and offcuts that never made it into their finished show. Routines they loved, but couldn’t get to work, a one-off character, a song in the wrong genre, or something so specific that they couldn't reuse it elsewhere.
It’s a warm, fun evening full of games, songs and silliness, taking an honest and philosophical look at what hits the cutting room floor and why. Eye-watering in one way or another, Kill Your Darlings offers a place of refuge for all the brilliant bits that don’t have another home to go to.
So come and watch these performers dust off their dead darlings, for better or for worse. The Line-up to be announced.
We're kicking off our debut London show with a bang! (Showtime: 3-5pm, includes interval).
“Bloody Great Idea” – Stuart Goldsmith
