"Don't Bother" is the passion project and debut solo show from award winning spoken word artist and comedian Bróccán Tyzack-Carlin. 

We have been lucky enough to be offered a slot at Underbelly at this year's Edinburgh Fringe! The opportunity to perform at the world's largest arts festival, at one of the four most prestigious venues, for a full month run is invaluable. It is an incredible chance to showcase all the hard work that has gone into "Don't Bother"...but is also extremely expensive.

Any help that you can offer would be appreciated to no end, whether that be in the form of a donation or sharing this Crowdfunder page on social media. 


"Don't Bother" is a stand-up poetry show about dead dogs, chocolate and nostalgia. 

Bróccán Tyzack-Carlin presents a semi-coherent exploration of nothing in particular using some words that rhyme and some more that don't. Blending surreal humour with storytelling and spoken word, this is a unique hour of comedy that is not to be missed. 

The show has been performed to sell-out audiences across the country and has enjoyed successful runs at Leicester Comedy Festival, Brighton Fringe and Greater Manchester Fringe.

Bróccán - Writer/Performer/Director - is a comedian and poet from Hartlepool. He is the winner of the Manchester Slam 2018 and the Huddersfield Literature Festival Slam 2019. He was runner up in the Manchester Champion of Champions Slam and is a Hammer and Tongue National Finalist 2019. 

He has headlined comedy and poetry nights across the country, has performed at the Royal Albert Hall and is set to perform at this year's Kendall Calling. He is an alumnus of the Durham Revue, with whom he won the Derek Award for Best Sketch Show at EdFringe 2017 and was the recipient of the Spotlight Award for Most Promising Actor at the National Student Drama Festival 2016. 

We are raising money to help cover the costs of accommodation, travel, venue hire, marketing, PR and a technician for the entire run.

So much hard work has gone into this show and it'd be amazing to be able to share it at Edinburgh Fringe this year, with your help.
