In a nutshell
An anti-dating night where you could meet the person of your dreams!
Sick of online dating and rubbish mixers? Swiping right and swapping digits? Answering stupid profile questions and working out percentages? Then come to Varjack & Simpson’s anti-dating event – where you could meet the person of your dreams!
WORST. DATE. EVER. features true stories of dates gone wrong from some of London’s most excellent comedians, poets, musicians, and storytellers. Share drinks and laughs over their tales of awkward encounters and hilarious heartbreak – and maybe tell us about some of your own too!
Between the acts, V&S host silly party games and light-hearted ice-breakers for everyone to play – giving you the chance to get to know people in a fun way. And at the end of the night, you might just have met the person of your dreams – or at least made a new friend or two.
Everyone is welcome at our super-inclusive get-together – whatever your gender, orientation, and relationship status. Your WORST. DATE. EVER. might just be the best night of your life!
What to expect
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.
